An Overview of Car Crash Laws in Colorado

Traffic accident liability is based on negligence. Broadly defined, negligence is the failure to take due care. In a motor vehicle crash case, negligence can take many forms. Some of the most notable examples of negligent conduct includes:

  • Speeding;
  • Running red lights;
  • Running stop signs;
  • Tailgating;
  • Unsafe vehicle maneuvers;
  • Distracted driving;
  • Texting and driving; and
  • Intoxicated driving.
Car accident dui

Under Colorado state law (C.R.S. § 13-21-111), each party to a car crash in Eagle County will be held liable for their proportionate share of the fault. In other words, more than one party may be deemed “negligent” after an accident. If you are found partially at-fault for your own collision, it will take money out of your pocket. Protect yourself from an unjust finding of liability by speaking to a Vail car accident lawyer before you speak to an insurance adjuster.
