With traffic from 34 being diverted through Lyons, this typically idyllic mountain town is experiencing a significant – almost alarming – increase in traffic. Of course, traffic in Lyons is not entirely uncommon during festival season and the warmer summer months, but this increase in through-traffic is substantial, and it’s creating quite a problem for locals and visitors alike.
If you are visiting Lyons, make sure you are aware of traffic before crossing streets, even if the signal indicates it’s your turn. There is an average of one fatal pedestrian accident every two hours in the United States and more than 150,000 pedestrians are treated in hospitals for accident-related injuries every year. Being extra careful in high traffic areas is essential if you want to avoid becoming part of these statistics, but if it’s too late, Boulder pedestrian accident attorney Christopher Jeffress can help.
Attorney Jeffress represents victims of pedestrian accidents throughout Northern Colorado, along the Front Range, and in mountain communities located off of 7, 36, 34, and 14. If you are injured while walking, riding your bike, taking a jog, or simply being outside, Mr. Jeffress can investigate all causes of your accident, identify the liable party, and help you get the full compensation you are due.
Pedestrian accidents can have serious and lasting consequences and insurance companies are often quick to offer settlement in an attempt to dissuade legal action. Instead of being further victimized by greedy insurance companies, call our Boulder personal injury office at 303-993-8685 to schedule a free consultation. During this visit, Attorney Jeffress will discuss all of your legal options and help you determine which is most likely to result in the compensation you deserve.
