    Many people love the sense of fun and freedom that motorcycles offer over cars and trucks. Unfortunately, the inherent risk is much greater in a motorcycle than in a car or truck. Taking into account total vehicle miles driven in the United States, motorcyclists are far more likely to be involved in a fatal accident. And with the lack of structural protection offered by motorcycles, many non-fatal crashes result in far more serious injuries than someone in a car would suffer in a similar crash. For these reasons, it is vital that everyone on the road, whether driving a car or truck, or riding a motorcycle, be well aware of the traffic around them, and drive safely at all times.

Many Colorado personal injury attorneys work on a contingent fee basis, meaning that you pay a fee only if they successfully recover financial compensation for you.
