Motorcycle accidents often caused by negligent drivers

Motorcycle riders will always be more vulnerable than the occupants of larger, enclosed vehicles. However, even if they wear every bit of protective gear that is available, it might not protect them from negligent drivers of cars and trucks who can cause deadly motorcycle accidents. Such circumstances seemed to have claimed the life of a Colorado man on a recent Thursday.

Will awareness month prevent motorcycle accidents?

After four or five months in storage, motorcycles in Colorado are being pulled out by bikers who want to enjoy traveling as the weather warms up. Vehicle operators have to get used to sharing the roads with bikes again, and those who are not vigilant could cause auto vs. motorcycle accidents. To remind road users of their duties to care, May has been designated as annual Motorcycle Awareness Month by the American Motorcycle Association.

Motorcycle accidents: Fatal crash kills rider, injures passenger

Traveling on Colorado roads can be hazardous. Any crash can have devastating consequences, but chances of catastrophic or fatal injuries are higher in car vs. motorcycle accidents. While occupants of passenger cars have seat belts, airbags and the body of the car as protection, motorcyclists have no protection against the impact of a collision.

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.
