Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle Accidents Attorney in Denver 

The number of serious and fatal bicycle accidents in Colorado has continued to increase in recent years with the popularity of cycling for recreation and fitness.  

While cyclists account for only about one percent of all Colorado traffic collisions, riders are among those most likely to be seriously injured or killed in a crash.  

Statistics continue to show a high concentration of Denver bicycle accidents occurring in certain neighborhoods, with over half of all bicycle accidents reported in Congress Park, Westwood, Cheesman Park, Highland, Baker, City Park West, Lincoln Park, Civic Center, North Capitol Hill, Capitol Hill, Union Station, Central Business District and Five Points.  

Ken Fiedler Injury Law provides passionate, principled and proven representation to victims and families looking for an experienced bicycle injury lawyer in Denver or the surrounding areas, including Highlands Ranch, Littleton, Ken Caryl, Columbine, Golden, Lakewood, Broomfield, and Arvada.  

Denver Bicycle Injury Lawsuits 

Causes of Colorado bicycle accidents are similar to those for motorcycle accidents, as are the resulting risks of serious and fatal injuries, including broken bones and joints, facial injuries, joint injuries, road rash and head injuries.  

Top causes of Colorado bicycle accidents:  

  • Failure to yield: Drivers who fail to yield to an oncoming rider, either at an intersection or by turning left in front of an oncoming rider, are the leading cause of vehicle-related bicycle accidents in Denver and the surrounding areas.  
  • Lane sharing: Crowding a rider by attempting to share a lane or otherwise attempting to pass a rider within a travel lane is a leading cause of serious and fatal collisions.  
  • Dooring: Opening a car door into the path of an oncoming rider typically results in serious injuries.  
  • Distraction: Drivers who are distracted are always at risk of causing an accident. But bicycle riders are at increasing risk because they are difficult to see.  
  • Turning accidents: Trucks, buses or other large vehicles too often fail to watch for riders approaching along curbside, and pinch off a rider’s lane of travel when turning right.  

In too many cases, a cyclist is unfairly blamed for causing or contributing to a collision. Many are surprised to learn that insurance companies may not agree with law enforcement’s decision at the scene and will resolve liability independent of law enforcement’s liability determination.  

Colorado Bicycle Injury Claims

  • Identifying and pursuing claims against all available insurance coverages and at-fault parties.  
  • Building a comprehensive claim for economic, non-economic and, where appropriate, punitive damages.  
  • Building a case capable of winning in court, which typically forces insurance companies and their attorneys to offer fair and timely settlement of your claim.
