Colorado Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Motorcycle accidents occur far too many times because of the carelessness and recklessness of other drivers. Although automobile drivers are required to "share the road," the reality is that many drivers do not give adequate attention to the presence of motorcycles. As a result, thousands of motorcyclists are hurt every year, and their injuries are typically much more serious than other drivers.
Our motorcycle accident lawyers are dedicated to protecting the rights and futures of clients who have been seriously injured in motorcycle wrecks. We’ve represented motorcyclists with traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, loss of limbs, and road rash.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the common causes of motorcycle accidents?
Motorcycle crashes often occur because a motorist or truck driver is not paying attention and doesn’t see you. Due to a motorcycle’s smaller profile, it’s easy for inattentive, distracted, or sleepy drivers not to see you until it is too late.
Some of these drivers will even blame you. They may engage in aggressive driving, such as racing alongside you or trying to cut you off. This behavior is dangerous and can lead to a crash.
What are some of the most common injuries associated with motorcycle accidents?
Motorcyclists are at an increased risk of suffering severe injuries in a crash. A motorcyclist can easily suffer head trauma, spine injuries, and broken bones — even if the other motorist walks away without a scratch.
What should I do immediately following a motorcycle accident?
Seek medical attention promptly if there are any injuries. Then contact the authorities to report the accident and provide accurate details. Try to gather evidence from the scene, such as photographs and witness contact information, which can be valuable for insurance claims or potential legal actions.
Next, consult with a motorcycle accident lawyer at Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. to receive guidance, protect your rights, handle communication with insurance companies, collect additional evidence, and explore legal options for seeking compensation for your injuries and damages.
How can I prove liability in a motorcycle accident?
Gather evidence such as accident reports, witness testimonies, photographs or videos of the accident scene, expert opinions, and any applicable traffic laws. The goal is to demonstrate that the other party was negligent or at fault for the accident and that their actions directly caused your injuries.
What types of compensation can I seek for my motorcycle accident injuries?
Many losses can be compensated through a personal injury lawsuit. Common examples of recoverable damages from motorcycle crashes include your medical bills, lost wages, physical and mental pain and suffering, inconvenience, emotional stress, physical impairment, and disfigurement.
Can I seek compensation for my motorcycle accident injuries, even if I was partially at fault?
Yes, you may still be eligible for compensation even if you were partially at fault. Colorado is a modified comparative negligence state–meaning you are able to recover so long as your negligence was less than 50%. The motorcycle accident attorneys at Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. can advise you.
How long do I have to file a lawsuit after a motorcycle accident?
You only have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit following a motorcycle accident—generally three years. But before you can file, there is preparatory work your attorney will need to complete. Contact Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. as soon as possible following your crash to maximize your case value.
What if the other driver doesn't have insurance or is underinsured?
You may have options to seek compensation through your own insurance policy — uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage can help cover your damages. Our personal injury lawyers can provide guidance on how to navigate this situation and pursue appropriate compensation without affecting your premiums.
Can I still pursue a claim if I wasn't wearing a helmet?
In Colorado, motorcycle riders 18 and over are not required to wear helmets. Yes, you can still pursue a personal injury claim if you were involved in a crash and were not wearing a helmet.
I would like to give a big thank you to Matthew Crowther and his paralegal, Nicolas Allen, for doing a great job on my case. They settled for more than I expected and were always available when I had questions. I would highly recommend them and would go back to them if needed. Thank you again.
