As a bicyclist, sharing the road with larger vehicles can be intimidating and when accidents do occur, a great potential for injury exists. Your livelihood, as well as physical abilities, can be severely impacted and accidents may result in the prolonged need for medical treatment.

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 Colorado Springs bicycle accident lawyers have recovered millions of dollars in settlements for our past clients. 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.
