Denver Motorcycle Accident Attorney

In our beautiful state of Colorado, many people enjoy riding motorcycles, both for recreational and commuting purposes. There’s nothing like the freedom that comes from taking a ride on a motorcycle on an open road through the mountains. However, when it comes to collisions, there is no getting around the fact that riding a motorcycle comes with inherent dangers.

How motorcycle accidents are different from car accidents

Compared to riding in a passenger vehicle, motorcycle riders have very little protection in an accident. Motorcyclists don’t have the frame of their vehicle to protect them, nor other safety features such as seat belts or airbags. Therefore, when a collision occurs with a motorcycle, very serious injuries or death often occur.

What if I wasn’t wearing a helmet?

Even if you were not wearing a helmet at the time of your accident, it does not mean that you don’t deserve any compensation for your injuries. Though the amount of protective gear that you were wearing at the time of your accident can effect the outcome of your case, there are still many other factors to consider. Our experienced & knowledgeable attorneys at Pushchak Law Firm are happy to offer you a free consultation to help you understand the strengths of your case and what your legal options are.

Who is Liable in a Motorcycle Injury Case

We address this a lot in our free consultations. Essentially, you have the right to compensation if your motorcycle injury was due to the negligence of another party. For example, if a driver making a left-hand turn fails to notice that your riding through straight through the intersection and turns into your path. In law-speak, it is if another party fails to exercise the level of care that a reasonable person would normally do under similar circumstances. In some cases, the liable party could be the driver at fault or even the motorcycle manufacturer if the design was defective and led to your injuries.

Damages You Can Recover

It really comes down to insurance. If you are a motorcycle accident victim, you can seek compensation from the at-fault driver and his or her insurance company. These are called compensatory damages to cover your economic and non-economic losses. This compensation can cover a variety of expenses that you may incur, including:

Again, we stress that each and every case is different, and so are the damages you may recover. Our goal is to enable you to get back to life as smoothly as possible.

Colorado Motorcycle Laws

The absolute authority on Colorado motorcycle laws is the Colorado Department of Transportation. But here are some quick pointers:

We must stress, again, that while it not required for adults to wear a helmet, you really should do so. There are plenty of studies that show that the number of deaths is significantly lower if wearing a helmet. In some studies, the death rate is cut in half! In fact, one study from the University of Michigan found that the fatality of those not wearing a helmet was 5.4%, while those that were wearing a helmet was 2.8%.

Motorcycle Injury Law

Motorcycle injuries are involved, as are the nuances of getting a fair settlement. We know that insurance companies tend to play more games when it comes to these sorts of cases. That is why you need a team devoted to ensuring you are getting what is fair. We understand the damages and injuries. We understand the law.

You are hurt, and bills may be piling up. You may not be able to work. That is why it is important to take action so you can get what you need to cover you and your family’s needs. You are not a bad person for seeking damages. It more about getting what you rightfully deserve from insurance. After all, you pay for coverage just for these very things – as does the at-fault party who may have caused your injuries.

Let us take care of it for you with peace of mind. Remember, we work on contingency. That means we do not take any fees until you win your case. There are no hourly fees or retainers. Just a simple percentage of the final settlement.
