About 200,000 General Motors SUVs Have Been Recalled

The vehicles are Chevy Trailblazers, GMC Envoys, Buick Rainiers, Saab 9-7x, and Isuzu Ascenders. Moisture in the driver’s door may cause a short circuit in the switch, which can lead to overheating and potentially fire. GM is offering a free repair to all owners of the recalled vehicles, and recommends parking the vehicles outdoors until the repair has been made. Similar issues have resulted in recalls by several other auto manufacturers in recent years.

Have you or a loved one been injured in an accident that was caused by a defective motor vehicle? Contact an experienced Denver product liability lawyer immediately to discuss your options.

Every year, there are over 5 million traffic accidents across the United States. These crashes have a wide variety of causes. While the number that are caused by defective tires or auto parts is relatively small, because these failures are completely unexpected, and often happen while the vehicle is in motion, they can be incredibly destructive. In some cases, the people hurt the most in these kinds of accidents are not even in the vehicle. Pedestrians or people in other vehicles may be even more seriously injured. Vehicles that suffer from defective parts may also crash into buildings, causing massive property damage.

Walk Signals Will Give More Time For Pedestrain Crossing In Denver

The flashing red hand on a walk signal is designed to last long enough for someone who has already begun to cross the street to get across safely. The amount of time that this signal flashes will be increased. However, since each intersection is a slightly different size, each traffic signal has to be adjusted manually, and the process is expected to take several months to complete.

Have you or a loved one been injured in a pedestrian accident? Speak with a Denver pedestrian accident lawyer today to discuss your options.

The number of pedestrian collisions in traffic has risen dramatically recently, and the city has been looking for ways to alleviate that problem. With the belief that many people are not able to get across streets in the amount of time that is currently allotted by walk signals, the federal guideline increase hopefully will lead to fewer accidents as lights change color with pedestrians still trying to get across the street. Denver personal injury attorneys have seen an increase not only in the number of accidents involving pedestrians, but also in the number of fatalities, and the number of drive-offs by cars.

Speak with a dedicated Boulder car accident attorney immediately if you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a pedestrian accident. If your injuries were caused by the negligent actions of another person, you may be entitled to recover financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Many Denver personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which ensures that you can have access to the civil justice system because you pay a fee only after your lawyer successfully recovers compensation for you. In addition to the physical injury, a pedestrian accident can result in serious financial hardship. No one should have to face that alone.
