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.
