Bicycle Accidents in Colorado

Motor vehicle collisions can have a life-changing impact on those involved. This is especially true when they are left with painful injuries. We see thousands of victims hospitalized each year with life-changing injuries. Many injured parties involved in these collisions are using bicycles for transportation. Colorado, like most other states, remains proactive in protecting pedestrians and bicyclists traveling along our roads. Although laws are constantly enacted to guide travelers throughout the state, we continue to see victims lose their lives in crashes at an alarming rate.

In many instances, injured riders have to go through surgery, spend days in area hospitals, and months in therapy. Regrettably, many victims are unable to return to work for several weeks or even months as they recover. Given the fact that riders are generally unprotected in collisions, they are more likely to suffer life-threatening injuries that require emergency medical attention. These crashes often have an overwhelming impact on victims and their families who are all forced to deal with the consequences moving forward.

When victims are hurt in crashes due to the negligence of others, they may be entitled to compensation to help alleviate the financial burdens they face moving forward.
