Residents of Colorado have some of the most active lifestyles in the country, which include a commonly shared passion for bicycling. Whether commuting to work or blazing down a mountain trail, Coloradans have elevated the bicycle from a simple mode of transportation to a vital element of the state’s culture.

Bicycle Accidents Caused by Negligent Drivers
Negligent drivers are one of the leading causes of bike accidents. Even when bicyclists follow the required traffic rules, motorists frequently fail to give bicyclists adequate room or completely ignore the presence of cyclists altogether. Automobile drivers often cause accidents that have grave repercussions in a cyclist’s life by:
- Turning into a bicyclist’s lane of traffic
- Failing to stop at a red light or stop sign
- Failing to yield the right of way
- Using excessive speed
- Driving while distracted
- Driving while under the influence
Damages for Traumatic Cyclist Injuries
The injuries suffered by bicyclists are often far more severe than those sustained while in a well-protected car or truck. When struck by an automobile, a cyclist may suffer:
These injuries can require extensive medical treatment and physical therapy. Many families are not prepared or equipped to effectively deal with mounting hospital expenses or extended periods of lost wages due to time away from work. Permanent disabilities can put an even greater strain on families, and often leave victims feeling lost and without hope.
