Denver Motorcycle Accident Attorney

One of the best things about being a motorcycle rider in Denver is being able to get up into the mountains of Colorado. You can enjoy the cool, brisk air and test your skill on the winding roads. You might push the limits, but you can handle your bike and you can handle the road.

One of the worst things about being a motorcycle rider in Denver is the other drivers. Not only are there constantly an increasing number of drivers creating more traffic, but there’s also more risk. Drivers become impatient, inattentive, and aggressive, leading to motorcycle accidents. And when that happens, motorcycle riders get hurt. If you are a motorcycle rider who was hurt because of another person’s actions, you deserve compensation, and Pushchak Law is determined to help you get it.

The best way to learn whether you have a valid motorcycle accident case is to schedule a free consultation.

Damages You Can Recover after a Motorcycle Accident

motorcycle accident victimThe goal of the law is that you should be “made whole” for injuries caused by another person’s negligent actions. Every case is different. However, when you’re injured due to someone else’s actions, you might be eligible to receive compensation for a wide range of damages, including:

It’s worth noting that you are usually seeking compensation not only from the driver, but from their insurance company. Insurance companies often employ strategies to reduce their cost from accidents, including offering quick settlements. These settlements are calculated to look big, but often fall short of your true expenses related to the injury.

Motorcycle Accident Injury and Compensation

You can’t always get compensation for a motorcycle injury. Colorado has what is known as modified comparative negligence. This means you can only get compensation for a motorcycle accident injury if other driver’s negligence is 50% or more responsible for your injury. In other words, you have to be less than 50% responsible for your accident to get compensation. In addition, your compensation will be reduced by the degree to which you are deemed responsible for your injury.

Let’s consider some examples based on the situation in which one car moves unexpectedly, causing a second car to respond, which swerves into your motorcycle, causing an accident and injury. If you were driving perfectly and had a well-maintained motorcycle, the court might determine that 30% of the negligence was due to the first driver, and 70% due to the second driver, and you would receive 100% compensation for your injury.

However, if you were speeding, maneuvering dangerously, and weren’t wearing adequate safety gear (a helmet, jacket, boots, etc.), the court might decide that 40% of the negligence was yours, 25% was the first driver’s, and 35% the second drivers. You would still get compensation, but it would only be 60% of the total damages. If your tires are worn, your brakes poorly maintained, or there are other signs of failure to properly maintain your motorcycle, the court might determine that 51% of the negligence was yours, and you would get no compensation.

How a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Can Help

Hiring a motorcycle accident attorney doesn’t mean you have to go to court. Usually, we help you get a better settlement without going to court. In fact, insurance companies automatically increase their settlement offers when they know you have hired a lawyer.

We can also help you look at a settlement and know when it’s fair. A lawyer also knows how to negotiate with insurance companies to maximize your settlement. We can also help you look at the factors that will contribute to your degree of negligence and help you make decisions on that basis.
