Injured in a Motorcycle Accident in Colorado?
You hear stories about motorcyclists who get injured or killed because they were careless in one way or another while riding. But if you or a loved one was seriously injured or killed in a motorcycle crash by no fault of your own, that’s a different story.
You could wear all of the right safety gear and abide by all of the rules of the road, but somemotorcyclists still fail to get noticed by other motorists on the road.
Five ways that motorcycle riders get whacked by inattentive or rude motorists:
- Cars pulling out in front of a motorcycle because the car driver just “did not see” the motorcycle
- Cars turning into the path of a motorcycle because the driver, not seeing an oncoming car, assumed that there was no oncoming traffic
- Cars sideswiping or veering too close to motorcycles causing the rider to crash
- Cars following too closely
- Cars rear-ending motorcycles
If you have been injured while motorcycle riding due to the negligence of another motorist, you have rights. Motorcycle riders often don’t get a fair shake after they have been injured in an accident. Frankly, many drivers don’t like motorcycle riders because of their own biases and fears. And, unfortunately, this attitude is sometimes shared by law enforcement personnel. Consequently, motorcycle accidents should be swiftly and thoroughly investigated so that accurate evidence can be obtained. You need a Colorado motorcycle accident lawyer who understands the complexities surrounding motorcycle accident cases.
