Elk Causes Rollover | Pueblo Car Crash Attorney

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

According to The Chieftain, a single-vehicle rollover accident sent a mother and her daughter to the hospital. The woman, who lives in Lakewood, was driving just south of Pueblo when she swerved to avoid an elk in the road, and ended up rolling her Jeep Liberty. The woman’s one-year-old daughter, who was thrown from the vehicle, was transported to Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs. The driver was taken to St. Anthony’s in Denver. A third passenger was taken to a hospital in Alamosa, but was released. The Colorado State Patrol does not believe that alcohol, drugs, or speeding were factors in the crash, but are looking into whether the child was securely restrained in a child safety seat.

Have you or a loved one been injured in a car crash? Speak with an experienced Pueblo car crash attorney immediately to discuss your options.

Not every car crash happens because a driver acted carelessly or negligently. Sometimes, things just happen: wildlife in the road, extreme weather conditions, and emergency situations are issues that no one can control. However, in many cases, car crashes are the result of one (or more) driver either acting in a way that a reasonable person wouldn’t, or failing to act in a way that a reasonable person would. This is what is meant by negligence. When another driver’s negligence causes serious injury, you can be compensated for the cost of that injury.

If you have been seriously injured by another driver’s negligence, speak with an experienced Pueblo car crash attorney as soon as possible to discuss your options. There can be a lot of complicated factors involved, and some insurance companies will try to maximize profits by avoiding payment of legitimate claims. Mickey Smith has helped countless people who have been victims of car crashes to recover the compensation they needed to get back to normal life. His thorough understanding of the law, as well as the processes of investigation and insurance can help you. For more information and a FREE CONSULTATION, contact Mickey at (719)544-0062 today.

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

According to the Pueblo Chieftain, Evraz Rocky Mountain Steel’s plant in Pueblo, Colorado has been cited by the U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for hazardous working conditions. OSHA uncovered violations for machines that were capable of amputation due to their rotating parts. Evraz was cited for a similar hazard in July of 09’ and this violation is especially serious due to the potential for serious injury or death. In addition to this violation, Evraz had a series of violations including:

  • Failing to implement a lockout for energy sources
  • Inadequate belt guards
  • Inadequate pulley guards
  • Improper storage of flammable materials
  • Failure to protect workers from electrical hazards
