If you’ve been injured while biking in Colorado, you have rights.
Cycling is healthy, fun, and an important part of the recreation culture of Colorado. Everyone should feel free to ride a bike in Denver without fear of harm. Unfortunately, motorists aren’t always careful around cyclists. And a person on a bicycle is no match for a two-ton car or a 40-ton truck, thus bicycle accident injuries can be catastrophic.
While most bicycle accidents do not involve a motor vehicle, those that do (roughly 30% of all bike accidents) tend to involve serious injuries. Many are deadly. Even though bicycles account for only 1% of roadway traffic, they account for over 2% of roadway fatalities.

Denver Bicycle Accident Lawyers
The total number of bicycle accidents in Denver is increasing and over half of these accidents result in injury. Colorado has enacted a statute (Colorado Revised Statutes § 42-4-1412) outlining a cyclist’s rights and responsibilities on public roadways. In Colorado, cyclists and motorists have an equal right to use the public roadways. Likewise, cyclists must obey the rules of the road.
Motorists who drive negligently, whether speeding, texting while driving, driving drunk, or failing to yield the right of way, are legally responsible for the injuries they cause. Generally, Colorado personal injury law extends a great deal of legal protection to cyclists injured because of another party’s careless behavior.
