Pedestrian & Bicycle Accidents

Denver Pedestrian and Bicycle Accident Attorneys

We Can Help You Hold a Negligent Driver Accountable

Because pedestrians and bicyclists are usually wearing little, if any, protection when they are on the road, being hit by a negligent driver can cause serious injuries. The higher the driver’s speed at the time of the collision, the more severe the accident will be. Unfortunately, because we live in such a car-driven culture, injured bicyclists and pedestrians may struggle to get the help and support they need after an accident.

We can fight to ensure that you are fully compensated for your injuries, damages, and pain and suffering. We are proud to be able to level the playing field between our clients and the large insurance companies they are often up against. Since our firm’s founding, our skilled attorneys have been able to secure hundreds of millions in verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients.

Driver-Caused Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents

Especially during the pandemic, Americans switched to walking and biking in their communities rather than taking long car trips. The benefits of getting regular exercise, along with the ability to avoid frustrating traffic, may mean this trend will continue even COVID-19 fades into the past. Unfortunately, our cities and streets are still built to favor car travel. This means pedestrians and bicyclists—already vulnerable due to their smaller profile that makes them harder to see—are more likely to be injured by drivers who think they have the main right to be on the roads.

Our pedestrian and bicycle accident attorneys have handled numerous cases in Colorado, including:

  • Failure to yield the right of way to a pedestrian or bicyclist
  • Failure to stop at a traffic signal or stop sign
  • Failure to stop when a school bus arm was extended
  • Failure to look right when entering a crosswalk
  • Turning left into the path of an oncoming bicyclist
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Speeding or reckless driving
  • Swerving into a bicycle lane

No matter how a negligent driver violates your right-of-way, you should explore your legal options.

Hit-and-Runs: A Growing Risk

Over the past decade, bicyclists and pedestrians have faced an increasing risk of hit and runs. These accidents are often serious and may even cause fatalities when vulnerable bicyclists or pedestrians are left alone at the scene of the accident with no help on the way.

Our team can help you determine your options for compensation after a hit and run. Sometimes, with a focused investigation, we can find the at-fault drivers in hit and runs. Working with law enforcement officers, we may be able to recover enough evidence to piece together the moves of the individual after they left the scene of the accident. Hit and runs are a crime that police want to solve as much as we do. If you’re looking for help, ask our team today.

Who Else Might Be Liable?

In rare cases, the at-fault party may not be involved in an accident at all. This can make securing compensation more difficult for the injured party. Our attorneys can take on these complex cases, launching in-depth investigations and standing strong against corporations or even governments.

We can help you if you need to bring a lawsuit against:

  • An automaker or car parts manufacturer that sold a faulty vehicle or part.
  • A bikemaker or bike parts manufacturer that sold a faulty bicycle or part.
  • The agency responsible for designing roads if the accident was caused by design choices that reduced visibility for you and/or the driver

While these claims are rare, they can be hugely important because their impact has the chance to go beyond you. Calling attention to a dangerous vehicle or poorly designed road can lead to changes that may make our community safer for all.
