A Positive Word About Bicycles and CU Students

As we sit in our office here in Lafayette (about 15 minutes away from campus) and we think about the community we serve, we are constantly impressed with the energy and initiative we see in CU students on and around the Boulder campus. Boulder’s congested traffic can be a transportation nightmare, but when we see CU students and other Boulder residents choose to bicycle as a form of solving Boulder’s traffic problem, we are inspired to serve as advocates when a Boulder cyclist goes down after a collision with a careless motorist. Our CU bicycle accident attorneys stand by to help you and, we are eager to bring our passion and expertise to bear on your behalf after you’ve been hurt in a bike accident in Boulder.

Giving You Comfort After a Serious Bicycle Accident

We understand that if you are a CU student who has been in an accident, talking to a lawyer about your case is probably unfamiliar territory. To help solve this problem, we want to assure you that our CU bike accident lawyers are first and foremost professionals who will treat you with the utmost respect for your situation. If we believe that a potential student-client lacks the comfort to make the decision to hire a lawyer on his or her own, we encourage and welcome getting a parent or trusted friend involved in our initial meetings before the decision of hiring a lawyer is made. The truth is that, with all our clients, our CU bike accident attorneys view family involvement as a vital part of properly building your case. This is true whether you are a Colorado-native or if you came to the University of Colorado from out of state (or even another country).

When you feel ready, we will be able to explain in detail how the insurance claims process works, how the legal process works, and we will evaluate the at-fault driver’s insurance policy, as well as your family’s auto insurance policy, to make sure you fully understand the amount of coverage that is available to you. We are happy to meet you at your residence, a common-area on campus, or here at our office in Lafayette (about 15 minutes straight down Arapahoe).

Types of Bike Accidents We See in Boulder

At Cook, Bradford & Levy, LLC, our bicycle accident lawyers for CU students are avid cyclists. Even though we are primarily mountain-bikers, we understand from our own cycling experience and from our experience as personal injury lawyers the dangers of commuting along Boulder’s streets and sidewalks. Over the years our CU bicycle accident attorneys have helped CU students who have been injured by inattentive drivers in a variety of circumstances. We know that accidents can happen when cyclists are rear-ended, cut off by vehicles turning across traffic or designated bike lanes, hit by drivers turning out of gas stations or shopping centers, and dooring which is when drivers parking their cars open their doors into the path of cyclists.

The bottom line is that our team of CU bicycle accident lawyers are familiar with how bike accidents happen in and around CU’s campus, and we are even more familiar with the legal environment surrounding bike accident cases and how to maximize your financial compensation if you have been a victim of an inattentive driver.

Types of Damages Recoverable by CU Students

A serious bike accident can hurt you physically, mentally, and financially. The good news is that in Colorado you are entitled to recover the full extent of your losses from the at-fault driver. Typically, this means a good CU bike accident attorney can get you compensated for past and future medical, emotional injuries like pain and suffering, as well as any physical impairment that you might have sustained in your bike crash. What makes representing CU students unique is that your injuries may either prevent you from studying or make it difficult to do so. Our team of lawyers has recovered money such as lost tuition, travel expenses, moving expenses, lost wages and lost earning capacity, non-refundable fees, out of pocket expenses to make transportation easier such as Uber and Lyft expenses, and many other damages that are unique to CU students. At Cook, Bradford & Levy, LLC, we understand that each case is unique, and your losses depend on a wide range of factors.

Client Reviews
“I was rear ended by a driver on his cell phone. I started with another attorney, but was not receiving adequate attention to my case. I switched to Brian and everything changed. He was attentive to my situation, listened to all I had to say, and worked to resolve my case in a timely fashion. He continued to communicate and touch base even during slow parts of the process. After the settlement was resolved, he has still reached out to check in on my health and well being. I would highly recommend Brian Bradford as a lawyer.” Randy
“A driver trying to get away from the police ran a red light and broadsided my car. My injuries affected me physically, emotionally and organizationally. Hiring Steve Cook allowed me to focus on healing while ALL the legal Issues were effectively handled by his firm. Steve's patience, honest, determination. competence and experienced evaluation of my case resulted in a great settlement without having to go to trial.” Shirley
“I was injured in a car accident and I was having a hard time getting much of a response from the insurance companies. I never thought I would resort to calling an attorney, but I am so happy that I did, and that Jason Levy was that attorney. He was respectful, knowledgeable, and kind. When I was healing from major surgery, he arranged for my deposition to take place all the way out in Harford County, at a library near my home, rather than having me come into the city. He was also very persistent with the other driver's insurance company, finally negotiating an excellent settlement” Kate
