Drivers of motor vehicles, like motorcycles, have an obligation to exercise reasonable care when sharing the road. Tragically, thousands of motorcyclists are injured or die in Colorado every year due to careless drivers. In 2017, a Colorado Department of Transportation report stated that there were 120,172 total vehicle crashes, 2,386 of which involved motorcycles. Even more tragic, the number of motorcycle fatalities reported in Colorado in 2016 hit a high of 125, up by 15% from the prior year. The experienced motorcycle accident attorneys at Alhasoon, Glidden and Glidden understand how to get you the compensation you deserve if you are involved in a motorcycle accident.
What Are Your Dangers?
As a motorcyclist, you face numerous dangers on the road that automobile drivers don’t typically have to consider. Some of those dangers may include delicate weather conditions, defective products (such as tires or helmets), defective roads and highways, and reckless or negligent automobile drivers. Even with protective gear, many of these constant dangers can lead to serious life-threatening injuries due to the lack of protection a motorcycle offers, some of which include brain trauma, spinal injuries, or the loss of limbs.
Many automobile drivers fail to notice motorcycles because of blind spots or pure carelessness to signal or look before turning. Such mistakes can lead to serious injuries or the tragic loss of life.
If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, you may recover from the at-fault driver’s insurance company for reimbursement of any medical expenses and property damage you incur. Depending on your motorcycle insurance policy, you may also be able to recover from your insurance company for reimbursement of certain medical expenses. BUT, before you speak to the insurance company, contact an experienced motorcycle accident attorney at Alhasoon, Glidden and Glidden to walk you through your insurance policy and the options available to you.
