Bicycle Accidents

Denver Bicycle Accident Attorneys

Colorado is home to some of the best cycling in the country. Unfortunately, as the number of cyclists on Colorado roadways increases, so does the risk. Every year bicyclists are involved in accidents with motor vehicles, resulting in severe and often life-threatening injuries. In fact, 75% of such collisions result in a traumatic brain injury, and every 6 hours a bicyclist is killed. 

While bicycle accident statistics can be alarming, safety advisers warn that the number of bicyclists injured in accidents may be even greater. A great number of bicycle accidents in Denver go unreported every year when cyclists either can’t or don’t report their accidents to authorities.

At the Gold Law Firm, we take pride in representing injured cyclists and helping them get back on the road. Call us today to learn more about building your case and protecting your future! 

Bicycling Accidents in Denver

In Denver, serious and deadly bicycle accidents occur every week. When they do occur, the cyclist often suffers life-threatening injuries. While these accidents can occur on any street in Denver, some neighborhoods seem to be more dangerous than others.

  • Congress Park
  • Westwood
  • Cheesman Park
  • Highland
  • Baker
  • City Park West

At the Gold Law Firm, our Denver bicycle accident attorneys have considerable experience representing local cyclists. We live and work in the community and we understand the severity of these accidents, as well as the local courts, insurers, and medical teams that will be a part of your case. 

Who is to Blame After a Denver Bicycle Accident?

In Denver, multiple parties may share the blame for the accident. The car driver may have been driving distracted or fatigued at the time of the crash. The city responsible for maintaining the roadways might have neglected to trim shrubs near a stop sign. The bicyclist may not have been riding cautiously or responsibly. These are all examples of liable parties. 

When a bicyclist shares a roadway with automobiles, they are subject to the same traffic laws as motorists. These same laws also serve to protect bicyclists from negligent drivers. All drivers must be attentive to bicycle riders that share the roadways with them. In addition, every year there are new traffic laws aimed at protecting bicycle riders from automobile accidents.

Due to the complexities that surround bicycle accidents, an injured cyclist needs an attorney on their side from the start. A bicycle accident attorney at the Gold Law Firm can help you get the compensation you need from the responsible party. This compensation can get you back on the road quickly, so you can resume your active lifestyle. 

In order to determine who is responsible for the injuries your injuries, your attorney may need to use bicycle experts to testify regarding roadway safety, automobile speeds, and other important conditions. In addition to using bicycle experts, your attorney will work closely with police officials, witnesses, and medical experts to help determine all responsible parties and file the appropriate claims against them.

What to Do After a Bicycle Accident?

If you are injured in a bicycle accident, it is important to contact a personal injury attorney at the Gold Law Firm immediately to review and handle your case. Injuries sustained after a bicycle accident can be severe and lead to a lifetime of chronic pain and disabilities. Compensation will be needed for medical expenses both now and in the future. 

There may be many parties responsible for your injuries and multiple claims to file. In addition to driver negligence, there may be other reasons your accident occurred and your attorney will need to review your case thoroughly to determine if product liability, defective products, or improper roadway maintenance contributed to your accident.

You can help your case by following your attorney’s advice and these tips:

  • Seek medical attention even if you do not believe you’re injured
  • Do not get your bike repaired
  • Get eyewitness information or contact info if you can
  • Take pictures at the scene or of the damage to your bike

Janet Christensen -

Client

This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!
