When you drive your vehicle on the road, you know there is a risk of being involved in an accident. When you are walking on the sidewalk or crossing the street, you know a vehicle could crash into you. Did you ever consider you could be involved in a car crash while sitting in your living room?
A recent incident in Littleton goes to show you never know when a motor accident can happen. This unfortunate homeowner had a car crash into their home. Owning a home or business situated close to the street means a car could come crashing through at any time.
If you are in a vehicle accident in Colorado, the law requires you to call the police in the following circumstances:
- If someone is injured or killed
- If there is damage to a property
- If the other driver is unable to exchange information
If a vehicle hits your property, the police can help determine why it happened. Did the driver swerve to avoid a child? Did they swerve to avoid a speeding car? Were they going too fast? Were they talking on their phone? Were they drunk or under the influence of drugs? Did they even have a license to drive?
If someone does crash into your Littleton property, you will want to claim compensation. A local attorney can study the case and fight for the compensation you deserve. After all, you have the right to sit inside your property, without worrying about a car driving through the wall.
