No one expects to be involved in a motorcycle crash. Even though most bikers are aware of the statistics, there is a feeling that accidents happen to others. This feeling of invincibility is not uncommon. But in truth, all bikers and motorists are vulnerable to being involved in a crash. In the aftermath of these crashes, injuries to bikers are expected, and fatalities are not uncommon. If you or someone you know have been involved in a Colorado motorcycle crash, contact the Law Firm of Kass & Moses today. Your call will be taken by an attorney who will listen to your story and then advise you about your case. Many times, when working with an attorney, you can receive far more in compensation than if you choose to go it alone.
The number of motorcycle fatalities is on the rise in Colorado. According to data from the Colorado Department of Transportation, fatalities from motorcycle crashes represent nearly 20 percent of total vehicular fatalities. The majority of motorcyclists killed were not wearing helmets, therefore it comes as no surprise that head injuries are the most common cause of death. Speed is involved in about a third of all motorcycle crashes.
