Lafayette is a growing community in the north-metro area, but it has always been a crossroads to some of Colorado’s larger cities along the front-range such as Denver, Boulder, Longmont, and Fort Collins. With the constant development along Highway 287, traffic flow has increased dramatically over the past decade including more large commercial trucks and semis traveling down Lafayette’s roads. Our Lafayette car accident lawyers see serious accidents happen nearly every day at intersections like Highway 287 and Baseline Road, as well as 95th Avenue and Baseline. Additionally, with growth in Broomfield County and the Town of Erie, we have seen severe injuries result from high-speed accidents at Highway 287 and the Northwest Parkway.
To illustrate the nature of the car accidents we see happening in Lafayette, the Lafayette car accident attorneys at Cook, Bradford & Levy, LLC, learned of a fatal two car crash that occurred in April 2018. In that case, a couple was killed on Highway 287 at Arapahoe Road after their truck crossed the center lane, collided head on with a minivan, and then rolled. The driver of the minivan did not die but received serious life threatening injuries and was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Lafayette.
While the above crash did not involve alcohol, our Lafayette car accident lawyers recognized some of the hallmarks that accompany serious crashes along Highway 287. Namely, the crash happened at 6 a.m., which is early enough in the morning so that commuters are on their way to work, and also people are on their way home after working the night shift. We have seen numerous crashes caused by drowsy driving where a lack of sleep has contributed to careless driving or, quite often, a semi-truck accident in which the driver has exceeded his hours without taking a break.Common Types of Car Accidents in Lafayette
The Lafayette, Colorado community is one of the most demographically diverse group of people within Boulder County, with residents of various levels of wealth, education, job-types, and other factors that make Lafayette special. This means that our Lafayette car accident attorneys see crashes caused by cars and trucks, as well as vehicles like school buses.
An experienced Lafayette car accident lawyer knows that on a fundamental level there is no real difference in how an accident happens, regardless of the type of vehicle involved. Whether an accident was caused by careless driving, driving under the influence (DUI), driving under the influence of drugs like marijuana, or distracted driving, the responsibility always falls on the shoulder of the driver of the negligent vehicle. Fortunately, however, the larger the vehicles involved, the more damage and often the more serious the injuries. This is why at Cook, Bradford & Levy, our expert Lafayette car accident attorneys know to look for larger insurance policies, often known as commercial insurance policies that can exceed $1 million or more in insurance coverage, when semi-trucks or cars or trucks are being used for business purposes. Additionally, the Boulder Valley School District is self-insured, which means that it has the equivalent of a large commercial insurance policy. Quite simply, the more insurance money available to you in a car accident, the less you will have to worry about whether there is sufficient insurance coverage to take care of your harms and losses.Helping Lafayette Car Accident Victims
