Colorado Springs Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycle Accident Attorney in Colorado Springs

At Pribila and Fields PC, our Colorado Springs motorcycle accident lawyers take special care when it comes to fighting for the rights of riders and their families. 

We know the vast majority of motorcycle collisions involving another vehicle are the fault of the vehicle’s driver.

Each summer, riders come from throughout the United States to ride through the mountains and parks of Colorado. Most riders keep safety at the forefront. They understand the risks and want nothing more than to enjoy the freedom and independence that comes with a long summer ride. 

Unfortunately, motorists too often fail to respect the risks. And even law enforcement can be quick to blame a rider for an accident, or otherwise fail to determine all of the factors of causation. This puts riders at a significant disadvantage because resulting injuries are usually severe, medical care and rehabilitation is time consuming and prohibitively expensive, and long-term consequences of an accident can result in disabilities that limit their ability to work and provide for their families, while reducing quality of life. 

Our Colorado Springs motorcycle accident lawyers are committed to providing experienced legal help to riders and their families and our commitment to ongoing communication makes us a leading choice for riders who must file a claim while living out of state. 

With over 40 years combined experience, our team of dedicated lawyers will personally handle your personal injury, or insurance-related claim with confidence and professionalism. You will speak directly with the attorney handling your case. We place a high value on clear communication and make it our priority that you are kept in the loop through all the stages of your case.

Motorcycle Injury Claims in Colorado 

Riders are always best served by immediate consultation with an experienced law firm after a motorcycle collision, both because of the near certainty of significant medical expenses, and because of the likelihood of long-term medical consequences or complications. 

An independent investigation and review of all of the facts and circumstances of a collision is best done in the immediate aftermath of a collision. The most common causes of vehicle-involved motorcycle collision include: 

  • Motorists who fail to yield and turn in front of an oncoming rider.
  • Motorists who change lanes in front of a rider. 
  • Motorists who rear-end a rider, either at a light or by failing to slow for riders ahead. 
  • Motorists who force a rider off the road. 
  • Motorists who exit a private drive, side road or parking lot into the path of a rider. 
  • Motorists who fail to yield at an intersection. 

The experience of our Colorado Springs motorcycle injury lawyers allows us to focus on three primary objectives from the moment you contact us for a free and confidential consultation: 

  • Determining fault and causation: Riders are too often blamed. And the initial investigation too often fails to uncover all of the factors that caused or contributed to a collision, including driver distraction, and failure to yield. Even in cases where a rider is found partially at fault, Colorado law still permits pursuit of a claim provided the rider’s fault was not greater than the combined fault of other negligent parties. 
  • Determining coverage: Significant injuries mean even an insured at-fault motorist may not have enough coverage to adequately compensate riders. That means thoroughly reviewing all of the facts and circumstances to determine whether other at-fault parties share responsibility, or other insurance coverage is available, including coverage that may be available through a rider’s own insurance policy if he or she is carrying uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. 
  • Determining losses: In addition to medical expenses and lost wages, economic losses should include the cost of rehabilitation and costs associated with ongoing care and/or the consequences of future medical complications or disability. Non-economic losses, for pain and suffering, disfigurement and other damages, must also be carefully determined and presented by an experienced professional. 

Our comprehensive approach allows us to build motorcycle injury cases capable of winning all of the compensation to which riders and their families are entitled. When presented to insurance companies by a law firm known for taking cases to trial, our extensive preparation often leads to settlement offers that can fairly compensate riders without the cost and time commitment of the case ever proceeding to trial.
