Motorcycle accidents: Riders are not always at fault

While motorcycling is exciting, riders do not always recognize that life-threatening danger comes with the excitement. However, many Colorado riders take precautions and do what they can to minimize the risks of motorcycle accidents. Regardless of the steps they take, accidents will continue to occur because other road users may neglect to take similar precautions.

Motorcycle accidents: What makes up pain and suffering damages?

Any person in Colorado who suffers injuries due to the negligence of another party may pursue recovery of damages. Such recovery is obtained by filing a personal injury lawsuit in a civil court. Claimable damages could include much more than medical expenses and lost income, as incidents such as motorcycle accidents and auto crashes can also cause significant emotional damage.

Motorcycle accidents often claim lives of riders and passengers

Passengers on motorcycles are more vulnerable than passengers in cars. Motorcycle accidents differ distinctly from other Colorado crashes because riders and their passengers do not have enclosed vehicles to protect them, nor do they have seat belts, airbags and other safety features. For this reason, bikers typically suffer more severe injuries than occupants of passenger vehicles -- and many of them do not survive.

Motorcycle accidents: Alleged hit-and-run Denver driver at large

Colorado hit-and-run accidents are often difficult to investigate. Following car or motorcycle accidents that result in property damage, injuries or death, drivers must remain at the accident scene. Driving away can have serious repercussions for the driver, and it might prevent a seriously injured victim from receiving emergency medical treatment. It will also delay the accident investigation process and could leave the injured victims or surviving family members with many unanswered questions.

Accident Alert may follow too many car and motorcycle accidents

Colorado has already had its first snowfall for this winter. This means that there will likely be slushy road conditions -- increasing the chances for automobile and motorcycle accidents. Such circumstances sometimes lead to Accident Alerts being issued.

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. Such seems to be the case in this incident.

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. Sometimes, victims of motorcycle accidents must cope with traumatic injuries for which they were partly responsible. If that has happened to you, it does not necessarily jeopardize your right to recover damages from the party deemed primarily responsible for the crash.

The good news and bad news for older motorcyclists

If you have reached the time in your life when you can finally afford to own the motorcycle of your dreams, you probably want to spend as much time as possible on the open road -- but there is always the possibility of an accident, which might require hospitalization and the need for legal assistance.
