BICYCLE & PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS: WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
May 28, 2020
Bicyclists have specific rights under Colorado state and local law to ensure their safety. When careless drivers fail to observe those rights and accidents happen, the resulting injuries can be devastating, if not fatal, to the bicyclist. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury due to the negligence of an inattentive driver, you have the right to seek full compensation for your injuries.
At Downs, McDonough, Cowan & Foley, LLC we have experience handling all types of bicycle accident claims. We fight aggressively to see that the negligent parties are held accountable for the injuries you have suffered and diligently seek a resolution that takes into account your pain and suffering, medical care, rehabilitation, lost wages, loss of earning capacity and property damages.
As with bicyclists, when a pedestrian is hit by a car, it can result in extremely serious injuries, including broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and, in the most severe cases, the death of the victim. Our Colorado attorneys are committed to seeing that the negligent parties are held accountable.
The negligent driver's insurance company will try to do anything they can to avoid responsibility for your injuries. We will fully investigate the accident and dedicate our full resources to securing a positive result on your behalf. We will build the most compelling case possible, and work to secure the compensation necessary to accommodate your current and future needs.
If you or a family member is injured in a crash, you and your family could be eligible for compensation to cover medical expenses, pain, emotional distress and lost wages. Please contact one of our lawyers by phone or by email for your free consultation and to have an experienced Colorado personal injury lawyer represent you.
