Protecting Your Right to Fair Compensation
A bicycle accident has the potential to cause life-threatening injuries and lasting physical and emotional trauma. And yet, when you attempt to pursue a fair settlement from the insurance company, you may find that you are given the runaround. You may be offered an unfairly low settlement that barely covers your medical costs. If you want to ensure the full protection of your legal rights and a fair settlement or award, you need a skilled attorney to help you navigate these proceedings.

Colorado Revised Statutes § 13-21-111: Contributory Negligence
In accordance with Colorado Revised Statutes § 13-21-111, your compensation as a bicycle accident victim may be reduced if you are found to be partially at fault for the collision. For example, if you are deemed 20% to blame, your settlement or award would be reduced by that percentage. This is another reason it is so important to work with an experienced Denver bicycle accident attorney who can properly present your case and place blame on the shoulders of the truly responsible party.
