Legal Protections for Bicyclists
In Colorado, the actions of bicyclists and cars on the road are regulated
and governed by law. When a motor vehicle violates these laws and causes
an accident, they can be held liable. For example, a car must maintain
a safe distance while passing a bicyclist. It also prevents motorists
from threatening bicyclists while on the road. Even if there is never
any physical contact between you and the motor vehicle, they can still
be held accountable for injuries caused by an accident. A no-impact accident
occurs when the actions of a vehicle force a bicyclist to take evasive
maneuvers to avoid a collision and an accident occurs.
What Compensation Can I Recover?
Unlike collisions involving two cars, bicycles often have less protection
to shield them from the trauma of an accident. As a result, the aftermath
and injuries suffered by the bicyclist can be severe and may necessitate
prolonged or lifelong medical treatment. It is vital to seek restitution
to cover both current and future expenses caused by an accident. Our personal
injury lawyers have recovered millions of dollars in settlements for our
past clients in cases of personal injury. We can work on your behalf to
maximize your compensation so that you can better focus on recovery.
We can help you fight for monetary compensation to cover:
- Initial medical bills and hospitalization
- Future therapy, rehabilitation, and prescriptions
- Lost income from missed work
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished standard of living
Furthering Your Chances of a Favorable Outcome
Turning the tides in your favor begins immediately after the accident occurs.
Always wait for the police to arrive, as the information they take down
can benefit you in the future. Include your side of the story in the police
report and obtain necessary information from the other driver and witnesses.
Names, phone numbers, and insurance information are key.
Additionally, well-documented photos can also make or break your case.
Take pictures of the scene of the accident, your injuries, and the damage
done to your bike. Insurance adjusters are much more likely to decide
in your favor if they can clearly see why you deserve compensation. Perhaps
the most important step is to hire a law firm you can trust and one that
will be the advocate you need.
