Motorcycle Accidents in Colorado
Motor vehicle crashes in the state of Colorado claim the lives of hundreds of people each year. These collisions often cause grieving families to deal with overwhelming mental and emotional consequences. In many instances, motorcyclists are involved in these traffic-related incidents. Motorcycle collisions in our state claim the lives of more than 125 victims each year while leaving hundreds more injured. Although these vehicles account for nearly 1% of all traffic on roads across the country, riders are victims in nearly 15% of all motor vehicle collision fatalities each year across the United States. Victims who are involved in motorcycle accidents are often left with severe injuries, like spinal cord damages, neck injuries, burns, severe road rash, and brain injuries. These and other severe injuries often require months of treatment.
There are many cases where riders suffer life-changing injuries due to driver negligence. Each year, we see thousands of victims sustain injuries in crashes caused by:
- Drivers who disregard traffic control devices, run red lights, or blow through stop signs
- Drivers who engage in other reckless driving behaviors
- Drivers who speed
- Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Drivers who are distracted by phones and other objects
When victims are hurt in crashes due to these and other acts of negligence, they may have legal options available to help them move forward. In some cases, injured riders may be entitled to compensation that can help to cover the costs of long-term care expenses, medical care, vehicle repairs, and various other financial burdens they are forced to endure moving forward.
