Motorcyclists can easily be injured or killed because they were careless in one way or another while riding. However, if you or a loved one was seriously injured or killed in a motorcycle crash by no fault of your own, that’s a different story. You could wear all of the right safety gear and abide by all of the rules of the road, but some motorcyclists still fail to get noticed by other motorists on the road. An experienced Fort Collins motorcycle accident attorney can help you navigate the legal system and get you the settlement you deserve.
Three ways that motorcycle riders get whacked by inattentive or rude motorists:
- Cars pulling out in front of a motorcycle because the car driver “did not see” the motorcycle
- Cars following too closely and rear-ending motorcycles
- Cars sideswiping or veering too close to motorcycles causing the rider to crash
If you have been injured while riding a motorcycle due to the negligence of another motorist, you have rights. Motorcycle riders often don’t get a fair shake after they have been injured in an accident. Unfortunately, many drivers don’t like motorcycle riders because of their own biases and fears, and this attitude can sometimes be shared by law enforcement personnel. Therefore, motorcycle accidents should be swiftly and thoroughly investigated so that accurate evidence can be obtained. You need the best Fort Collins lawyer to understand the complexities surrounding motorcycle accident cases.
