Lawfirm of Sarah Christensen COLORADO SPRINGS MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 100,000 motorcyclists were injured in traffic accidents in 2007 alone. What is even more shocking is that each year, those numbers continue to increase. Since the majority of these accidents involve a much larger automobile, motorcyclists are already at a significant disadvantage. Injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents are more likely to be severe, causing chronic disabilities, life-long pain, suffering and even death.

Motorcyclists are usually not to blame for the majority of these accidents. In fact, other drivers are responsible for almost 70% of all motorcycle accidents. As a result, special cautions need to be taken to ensure that you receive adequate compensation for all medical expenses, rehabilitation and therapies. Colorado is an "at fault" state. In Colorado Springs, this means that the driver who caused the accident is also responsible for any damages, medical expenses and injuries sustained as a result of their negligence.

As a motorcyclist, one of the best ways to protect yourself after an accident occurs is to contact a motorcycle injury attorney. Your injury attorney will begin investigating the accident thoroughly to help determine exactly who was at fault. Your attorney will be responsible for reviewing the police report, investigating the accident and obtaining evidence that will aide in your ability to file a personal injury claim. In Colorado Springs, the Statue of Limitations is only 3 years. This means that you have 3 years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim and your attorney will see to it that your claim is filed within the allotted time to avoid any complications.

Even if the other driver is not at fault for the accident, there may be other conditions that contributed to your accident. Your Colorado Springs Injury Attorney will investigate for improper road maintenance, defective motorcycle designs or safety gear failure that may have been responsible for your accident. In certain situations, the motorcycle company, state or county may be responsible and you may be entitled to significant compensation.

After a motorcycle accident, medical expenses can quickly reach over $40,000 for a single head injury alone. Even though many people believe they have adequate insurance coverage, most policies are quickly exhausted after a severe or chronic injury. A thorough investigation of the motorcycle, the accident and the roadways is the only way to determine what parties are responsible. By contacting a Colorado Springs Injury Attorney immediately after a motorcycle accident, you can be sure that your claim will be handled quickly and efficiently so you can focus on your recovery.
