Bicycling is a popular pastime and an excellent form of exercise in Colorado,
but when an accident occurs, the damage can be severe. If you look at
statistics, a bicyclist is killed every six hours in the United States
and about 75% of bicycle accidents result in
traumatic brain injuries. If you or a loved one has been harmed in a bicycle accident, you will
want to be fully prepared to file your claim.
At Jordan Law, our Denver personal injury lawyers are committed to giving
our clients a voice when they have been harmed by another person’s
negligence. We offer experienced and effective legal guidance to those
who are dealing with a bicycle accident and are seeking just restitution.
Drivers of motor vehicles are required to exercise reasonable care for
others on the road. If this operator fails to do so, and such actions
or inactions result in damage to another, they can be held responsible.
Some of the common acts of negligence that often lead to bicycle accidents include:
- Failure to signal for lane changes
- Failure to yield the right of way
- Failure to stop at stop signs
- Making improper turns
- Distracted driving
Filing a Claim in Denver
If you or a loved one has suffered injury from a bicycle accident because
of a negligent driver, it is important to contact an experienced personal
injury attorney to represent you with your lawsuit. In many cases, the
driver’s insurance company will give you trouble, such as:
- Deny your claim
- Dispute your injuries
- Refuse to pay for non-economic damages
Sometimes, their insurance coverage is only required to pay for a portion
of your medical bills and other costs based on the policy limits. You,
however, have the right to receive compensation for all associated injuries.
Our firm can help you file a lawsuit so that you receive what you deserve
for the accident.
Make sure you are prepared to file by
