If you have been injured in a car crash, your life has changed. You are dealing with calls from insurance adjusters, medical bills, medical treatment that you have never needed before, or getting appropriately compensated for property damage to your vehicle. The process is overwhelming and the insurance companies do not care about you – they care about their bottom line. This is true whether you were injured by another car, an 18-wheeler, or you were on your motorcycle or bicycle at the time of the crash.
Causes of Car Crashes
Driving on today’s roads can be hazardous. Most drivers are in a hurry to get from point A to point B. They are worried about their schedules, cell phones, text messages, what is on the radio, or what is for dinner. This means they are not paying attention. And when someone is not paying attention, crashes occur. Even worse, drivers get behind the wheel when they are drunk. When these things happen, you suffer. According to the Institute for Highway Safety there were 32,719 fatal car accidents in the United States in 2013. In Colorado, 80% of such deaths involved alcohol. Whether you lost a loved one or were injured by a distracted or drunk driver, we are here to help.
Commercial Trucking Accidents
When a car is struck by a commercial vehicle such as an 18-wheeler, a semi-truck, or a tractor-trailer, the sheer mass of the vehicle can cause extensive damages, serious injuries, and death. Commercial truck drivers must follow strict safety guidelines. When truck drivers do not follow those guidelines, catastrophic injuries occur. Even with such catastrophic injuries, insurance companies seek to minimize damages and point the finger at the crash victims. Do not let them. Call our firm to investigate and vigorously prosecute your case.
Motorcycles are at a greater risk on today’s roads, not only because they are harder to see, but because so many drivers are distracted by cell phones, texting, eating while driving, putting on makeup, and any variety of distractions facing drivers and riders. Drivers do not pay enough attention to other automobiles, let alone bikers with whom they share the road. Because motorcycles do not offer the same protections as an automobile, the consequences of a collision are often grave.
Bicyclists are at even more risk. Drivers simply do not watch out for bicyclists and do not share the road. In Colorado, bicycles are considered vehicles and have the same rights and responsibilities as people who are in cars and trucks. Whether you have been injured by another vehicle or another cyclist, we can help.
We can even help if you are a pedestrian injured by a bicyclist, motor vehicle, or large truck. Everyone on the road has rights that deserve to be protected.
