Bicycle Accidents in Broomfield, CO

Call (720) 809-8310 for Compassionate & Experienced Legal Help

Bicycle is a popular mode of transportation, as well as common form of recreation and exercise, in Broomfield and throughout Colorado. However, accidents can occur, resulting in serious to life-threatening injuries due to be being vulnerable to the dangers of the road. Whether it’s a motorist or a pedestrian who caused a bicycle accident, victims are eligible to recover financial compensation to pay for medical expenses, lost wages, and even pain and suffering.

At Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C., we can help you hold the at-fault party liable for their negligent actions and help you make the best possible recovery from injury. With more than 30 years of experience, our firm has protected the rights and best interests of thousands of people, while guiding them through the intricacies of the legal process to maximize the personal injury award they deserve.

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), getting struck by a motor vehicle is the most common cause of bicycle accidents in the United States at 30 percent. Drivers always have a reasonable duty of care to follow the traffic laws and practice safe driving skills. If a driver fails to uphold this duty of care and causes an accident, the victim can seek monetary damages from the driver in the form of a personal injury lawsuit.

The following are the most common reasons of car-bicycle accidents:

  • Distracted driving
  • Intoxicated driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Failure to give the cyclist the right of way

Since bicycles are smaller in size compared to vehicles and can travel at relatively high speeds, motorists can find cyclists difficult to spot, especially when there is heavy traffic. It is important for cyclists to wear safety helmet and appear as visible as possible to motorists, often by wearing bright and reflective clothing.

Let Us Fight for You Today

It is not uncommon for drivers and their insurance company to deny liability and even hold cyclists responsible for the accident and subsequent injuries. This could mean injured victims could end up having to pay for everything out of their own wallet. Our legal team can investigate your case, obtain evidence, and build a solid legal strategy to ensure you get the outcome and compensation you desire.
