Bike Accidents Lawyer
Experienced Colorado Personal Injury Attorney
Bicyclists are not given the respect they deserve on the road. While bicyclists have the same rights and obligations as drivers on Colorado roadways, careless drivers give inadequate passing room, crowd bike lanes and enter crosswalks without caution. To anyone else, these may seem to be trivial infractions. However, to a bicyclist — and to the bicyclist’s family — it can mean much more.
At the Litman Law Firm, PC, we know the devastation a bicycle accident can cause. Our Denver bike accidents lawyer provides caring, experienced legal representation focused on helping accident victims and their families recover the compensation to which they are entitled.
Recover Full Compensation for Your Bike Accident Injuries
Without the protection of a vehicle, bicyclists face catastrophic injuries, even when hit by a car traveling at low speeds. The force of the impact can cause the biker to suffer life-altering injuries, such as:
- Spinal cord injuries resulting in permanent paralysis
- Closed head injuries or traumatic brain injuries that can affect the individual’s personality, comprehension or communication skills
- Complex fractures that fail to heal properly and result in chronic pain
- A coma that leaves the victim in a permanent vegetative state and ultimately results in his or her wrongful death
Catastrophic injuries resulting from a bike crash can cause much more than the physical and emotional challenges associated with a serious injury. These injuries can financially engulf a family dealing with the aftermath of the bike accident. Medical bills, ongoing therapy, long-term care costs and other expenses quickly accumulate. Yet time away from work and the associated lost wages or lost income to the family can make it difficult, even impossible to keep up with these expenses or other routine expenses. Our personal injury law firm works relentlessly to help clients overcome these financial struggles by maximizing their financial recovery following a bike accident.
Hit-and-Run Bike Accidents
Unfortunately, there are situations where a bicyclist is hit by a driver who flees the accident scene. Whether the driver failed to realize someone was hit, or the driver was afraid of a traffic ticket or drunk driving arrest, the result is the same — the accident victim is left to put the pieces of his or her life back together without the insurance coverage of the at-fault driver. At the Litman Law Firm, we examine uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage and all other avenues of compensation to help our client obtain the compensation necessary for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and future needs associated with the catastrophic injury.
