Because motorcycles lack the protections that cars do, when motorcycle crashes happen they usually injure the rider more severely than the driver of a car. Colorado does not require adult motorcyclists to wear helmets, which statistics show increase the likelihood of a brain injury after a motorcycle accident on Colorado’s roads. Our Lafayette motorcycle lawyers will not judge you whether you had a helmet on or not. We focus on the actions that led to the crash, even if the motorcyclist received a ticket.
More often than not, a serious motorcycle accident results in significant medical expenses to treat the traumatic injuries from the crash. Our experienced Lafayette motorcycle attorneys can help you recover those medical bills, and find the best ways to get those bills paid using health insurance, Medicaid or Medicare, or any number of programs that may apply to you. Additionally, it is not uncommon for a severely injured cyclist to have to go through rehabilitation and have a lifetime of future medical treatment. Fortunately, Colorado negligence law allows injured motorcyclists to recover these damages from the negligent driver, including lost wages, and if you cannot work following a crash, financial losses caused by diminished earning capacity.
Colorado also allows you to recover from your own uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance policy if the driver who hit you does not have insurance or does not have enough insurance to cover your losses. This is one of main reasons our Lafayette motorcycle accident lawyers recommend that Colorado motorcyclists check their insurance policies before riding and get the maximum amount of UM/UIM motorist coverage they can afford.Contingency Fees Mean No Payments Up Front
