Bicycling is a popular activity in Colorado. In fact, the League of American Bicyclists consistently ranks Colorado in the Top 10 Bicycle Friendly States. Additionally, in the State of Colorado, bicyclists have all the rights and duties applicable to the drivers of any other vehicle. This is a great means of transportation, however should an accident occur, the results can be devastating. Compared to passengers in vehicles, bicyclists are much more vunerable, as they are not protected by the frame of an automobile, seatbelts, or airbags. Therefore, in a collision, the chance of injury is much greater. Unfortunately, this situation happens far too often, and injured victims deserve to be compensated for someone else’s negligence.
Common causes of bicycle accidents include:
- Drivers not looking at crosswalks
- Distracted drivers
- Fatigued drivers
- Drunk or impaired drivers
