Denver Bicycle Accident Lawyers

Bicycling is very popular in Denver whether people are using their bike to commute, to exercise or train, or just for fun. Bicycles that use the roadway are typically considered to have the same rights and responsibilities as motor vehicles, but oftentimes motorists refuse to share the road with cyclists. The result of this hostility or carelessness can be devastating and contribute to an accident. Although many cyclists wear helmets, which offer some protection, a helmet cannot protect you against all injuries.

If you were hurt while cycling, it is important that you contact an experienced Denver bike accident lawyer from Zinda Law Group at 303-800-1501 to protect your legal right to compensation. We are available 24/7 and offer free attorney consultations.

Bicycle Accident Injuries

Due to the size difference between a bicycle and passenger vehicle, it is not surprising that the injuries you might sustain in a bike accident can be catastrophic and even fatal. The majority of cycling accidents occur at dusk and in urban areas, but in reality, a bicycle accident can happen at any time and any place.

Common injuries that you might suffer in a bike accident including:

  • Cuts and Bruises
  • Broken or Fractured Bones
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Back and Neck Injuries
  • Paralysis, Either Temporary or Permanent
  • Fatalities

If you or a loved one was in a bicycle accident, no matter how minor or severe your injuries are, be sure to contact a Denver bicycle accident lawyer today to discuss your case.

Common Causes of Denver Bicycle Accidents

While motorists are expected to keep watch and share the road with bicyclists, accidents and injuries still happen. Some of the common causes of bicycle accidents involving motor vehicles include:

  • Reckless Driving
  • Failing to Yield to Cyclists
  • Speeding
  • Failing to Check a Blind Spot or Simply Failing to See a Cyclist
  • Use of a Cell Phone or Other Distracted Driving
  • Drunk or Drugged Driving
  • Opening a Parked Car Door in Front of a Cyclist
  • Hitting a Cyclist While Making a Turn
  • Braking Suddenly in Front of a Cyclist

No matter the cause of the accident, the negligent driver should be held responsible for your damages. Typically, the at-fault driver will compensate you through their insurance company. However, in some instances, you may have to file a lawsuit to establish the negligence of the driver. If successful, you might be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, property damages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Thus, if you’re facing mounting medical expenses or missing work as a result of your injuries, it is imperative that you contact a knowledgeable Denver bicycle injury lawyer right away.
