Motorcycle accidents: Driver flees scene after killing biker

Following the death of a 63-year-old Colorado man, a Denver driver is facing multiple criminal charges. Motorcycle accidents form a significant percentage of annual road deaths in Colorado, and contrary to what many people believe, many of these fatalities result from the negligence of automobile operators and not the bikers.

Motorcycle accidents: Alleged DUI driver caused biker's death

Accidents involving cars and motorcycles often have tragic consequences. Motorcycle accidents in Colorado and elsewhere typically offer the riders little chance of survival because they lack the protections enjoyed by those in covered vehicles. Instead of having safety belts and airbags to safeguard against catastrophic injuries, bikers have only their crash helmets -- if they wear them.

Motorcycle safety during the warmer months

Very few motorcyclists can resist the urge to ride out on the roads in Colorado when the weather is warm. Many of them are so excited to bring their bikes out of storage that they fail to take into consideration the dangers they face on the streets. Some of them forget that the warm weather also appeals to more people, making the roads more congested than usual. 

How does comparative negligence work in motorcycle accidents?

Bikers nationwide, including in Colorado, are sometimes portrayed as reckless even though many crashes result from other drivers not keeping a proper lookout for motorcycles.

Bikers nationwide, including in Colorado, are exceptionally vulnerable when they are out riding, and injuries can have devastating consequences. Motorcycle accidents frequently result in severe injuries or death. Because motorcycles have only two wheels, they fall over in a crash -- often crushing a biker's leg. The Centre for Neuro Skills says bone fractures are the most common motorcycle injuries -- including leg, pelvis and shoulder bones, along with wrists and arms as they instinctively try to break the biker's fall.

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.

These situations often lead to motorcycle accidents in Colorado

Colorado police struggle to decrease motorcycle accidents

Motorcyclists are at risk on Colorado roads, and local police hope to reduce the number of accidents involving motorcycles by raising awareness among other motorists.

3-week period accounts for high number of motorcycle accidents

Motorcyclists from Colorado and across the rest of the United States recently made a trek to the world-popular Sturgis Rally.
