Children live through a car accident, thanks to the seat belts

Two young girls are alive and well, with just some minor injuries, after a two-car wreck in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Colorado and Wyoming car accident injuries: What is whiplash?

Whiplash -- a word heard frequently in reference to car accidents -- but what does it really mean? Even victims of car accidents often do not know what it means when a doctor tells them they have whiplash.

It helps with the eventual success of your legal efforts and also relieves anxiety about what is actually wrong with you.

How does driving while drowsy affect Colorado motorists?

In recent years, drowsy driving and sleep deprivation has become a serious problem in the United States. Estimates indicate that about 56,000 car accidents occur annually due to fatigue or drowsiness. In turn, this problem has caused almost 1,500 accident-related deaths as well as about 40,000 injuries per year. While not getting enough sleep is a main contributor to drowsy driving, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says other factors also contribute to this problem in Colorado, Wyoming and other states.
