Bicycles are an eco-friendly, health-conscious alternative to driving. Sadly, however, when bicycles and motor vehicles collide, the bicyclist tends to suffer severe injuries. Such accidents are very common, especially when there is a lack of bike lanes or a driver stubbornly refuses to share the road.

Common Damages in Bicycle Accident Claims
No two claims are the same, but many bicycle accident victims suffer similar losses. For instance, many bicyclists sustain road rash, head/brain trauma, spine injuries, or bone fractures, all of which require time off work and extensive medical treatment. Fortunately, the law gives you the right to seek compensation for all damages caused by the accident.
Some of the most common damages for which bicycle accident victims are compensated include:
- Hospital and medical bills
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Lost wages and benefits
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
- Loss of quality/enjoyment of life
At Klenofsky & Steward, LLC, we are known for getting our clients their maximum compensation. We encourage you to contact a Denver bicycle accident attorney for an initial valuation of your case.
Who Is at Fault for a Bicycle Accident?
The bicyclist will not typically be considered at fault for an accident, unless they were acting negligently or recklessly. If you were following the law, it is likely that the driver who struck you will be considered liable for the crash, not you. Still, you will need to prove negligence on their part to recover compensation.
Injured bicyclists may have a strong case if the other party’s negligence, such as the following, led to the accident:
- Driving while distracted, such as texting and driving
- Driving under the influence
- Attempting to pass a bicyclist illegally
- Refusing to share the road with others
- Refusing to yield the right of way to a bicyclist
- Changing lanes or turning without checking for bicyclists
In cases in which the bicyclist was also negligent, compensation may still be recovered. Colorado follows a modified comparative negligence policy, meaning those injured may seek compensation if they are less than 50% at fault for the accident. Any damages awarded will be reduced appropriately.
Unfortunately, negligent parties tend to exploit the modified comparative negligence policy. Insurance companies, for example, often claim that the accident victim holds a higher percentage of fault than they actually do. Our Denver bicycle accident lawyers will shield you from such attempts. We will fight tooth and nail to protect your rights.
