Why are injury claims after motorcycle accidents so challenging?

Motorcyclists are extremely vulnerable. For this reason, motorcycle accidents typically result in catastrophic injuries or deaths. Pursuing personal injury or wrongful death claims after bike crashes are best handled alongside experienced legal counsel.

If you are Colorado resident who is suffering the consequences of such an accident -- either as the injured victim or as the surviving family member of a biker that did not survive a crash -- you can save yourself from fighting the battle on your own by consulting with the attorneys at FleschLaw in Denver. Typical injuries suffered by bike riders range from road rash to catastrophic health problems such as traumatic brain and  spinal cord injuries. Those who are fortunate to survive may never be able to work in the same capacity again.

Is It Unfair To Label Millennials As The Most Dangerous Drivers?

Millennials have become the scapegoat for a lot of today's societal issues. They are the "Everybody Got a Trophy" generation - the ones who supposedly need to be praised constantly and told that they are extra special. They are considered to be lazy, not wanting to do the work that needs to be done in order to get their dream job or their dream house. Entitled, self-absorbed and impatient are just a few of the negative adjectives that are used to describe Millennials - but do these group of young people who were born between the years 1977 and 1995 really deserve this bad reputation?

Most recently, the Rapid City Journal reports that Millennials are now being labeled as the most distracted and perhaps most dangerous drivers on the road. The article cites a study released by AAA that claims that Millennial drivers, in particular young Millennials between the ages of 19 and 24, are most likely to exhibit risky behaviors while driving. These risky behaviors can include texting while driving, checking e-mail or browsing social media sites while operating a vehicle, using the phone to make a phone call or operating a GPS system while driving, to name a few.

Hit and run accidents: Plea deal accepted in Colorado

When a family loses a loved one due to the negligence of another, knowing that justice will be served often provides some degree of comfort to those grieving. However, the criminal justice system isn't the only entity that can mete out justice. Many who have lost loved ones in hit and run accidents in Colorado, for example, also pursue a wrongful death claim in a civil court. Such may be the next step for one family.

In June 2016, a 35-year-old cyclist was reportedly killed in a hit-and run accident. Police believe that a 25-year-old woman was driving the vehicle that struck the man. According to reports, she left the scene of the accident but was captured after a witness noticed the damage to the sports utility vehicle she was driving and contacted police.
