Colorado Springs Bicycle Accident Lawyers

Cycling is a popular activity in Colorado Springs. Many individuals use their bike to commute to work, train for races,  exercise, or simply ride for pleasure. Usually, cyclists that ride the roads have the same rights and responsibilities as those who drive motor vehicles. However, not all motorists are open to sharing the road with cyclists. Because some motorists refuse to share the road or drive recklessly, many cyclists end up in devastating accidents caused by motor vehicles. Even though many cyclists choose to wear helmets, helmets will not necessarily protect you from every injury if you’re in a crash with a vehicle.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a bicycle accident, you should contact an experienced Colorado Springs bicycle accident lawyer at Zinda Law Group at 719-285-6994. Our bike injury attorneys will fight for your right to compensation and advise you of your options with a 100% free consultation.

Colorado Springs Bicycle Injuries

There is a huge size discrepancy between a motor vehicle and a bicycle. Thus, it is no surprise that bicycle accident injuries can be devastating and in some cases fatal. Bicycle accidents can happen anywhere and at any time and leave the bicyclist with a range of injuries.
Some common bicycle accident injuries include:

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

If you or a loved one was harmed in a bicycle accident, whether your injuries are minor or severe, it is important that you contact a Colorado Springs bicycle injury lawyer right away to discuss your case and options.

Common Causes of Colorado Springs Bicycle Accidents

Although motorists should share the road,  many crashes and injuries still occur because someone was driving negligently or recklessly. When a cyclist is involved in an accident with a motor vehicle, the accident may be the result of:

  • Reckless Driving
  • Speeding
  • Failing to Yield to Cyclists
  • Failing to Check a Blind Spot or Failing to See a Cyclist
  • Drugged or Drunk Driving
  • Hitting a Cyclist While Turning
  • Opening a Parked Car Door in Front of a Cyclist
  • Braking Suddenly in Front of a Cyclist

Regardless of what caused the accident, the negligent or reckless driver should be held liable for your damages. While ordinarily you would be compensated through the at-fault driver’s insurance, in some instances, a lawsuit might have to be filed in order to establish that the driver was negligent.

When you successfully prove the negligence of the driver, you could be entitled to compensation for any medical expenses, property damages, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Accordingly, if you find yourself with mounting medical bills or you’ve been out of work due to your injuries, you should contact a knowledgeable Colorado Springs bicycle accident lawyer for help getting compensation right away.
