Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in Colorado

Every year, more than 40,000 people lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents across the United States. We see our fair share of fatal accidents here in Colorado. Some of the most common causes of collisions include distracted or impaired drivers, drivers who fail to yield the right of way, and those who act recklessly while behind the wheel. When motorcyclists are involved in crashes, they are more likely to sustain severe and life-altering injuries. These victims are not well protected in crashes and are particularly vulnerable. As a result, they account for nearly 15% of all fatal crashes in our state.

If your loved one has lost their life in a motorcycle crash, due to the negligence of another driver, it is imperative that you seek the assistance of a Colorado wrongful death attorney as soon as possible.
