Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Denver CO
At Kidneigh & Kaufman our motorcycle accident lawyers take these cases very seriously. We know that motorcycle accidents more often than not result in very serious and even catastrophic injuries and that anyone who has been in one needs competent and experienced representation.
There is no such thing as a fender-bender when a car collides with someone on a motorcycle. The biggest reason our lawyers have seen for this is that people driving cars simply never see the motorcycle until it is too late to avoid the accident. This is true even where the motorcycle is being operated with its headlight on during the day.
Having a lawyer for these motor accident cases is imperative to fight the prejudices that many people have against motorcycles. People have a tendency to blame the motorcyclist for an accident, even though it was the car’s fault, because a particular motorcycle might be loud and so they assume it must have been speeding. Our Denver motorcycle accident lawyers know how to fight these biases with fact. For this reason it is important for you to contact us as soon after an accident as you can for a free consultation, so that if you do choose to have Kidneigh & Kaufman represent you, we can begin gathering evidence before it is lost or destroyed, and ascertaining facts from witnesses before their memories dim with time. Call us at (303) 393-6666, or contact us online now.
It is important to remember that you are not penalized for not wearing a helmet. Colorado law does not require motorcyclists or their passengers to wear a helmet and the failure to wear a helmet is not admissible at a personal injury trial.
The motorcycle accident attorneys at Kidneigh & Kaufman strongly encourage motorcyclists and their passengers to wear a helmet. Even though the wearing of a helmet won’t prevent broken bones, we have seen that a helmet will oftentimes prevent brain injuries or limit the extent of a brain injury.
