Have you been injured in a motorcycle accident? Contact an experienced Denver motorcycle accident attorney today to discuss your options.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that over 4,000 motorcyclists are killed every year in traffic accidents. Given the lack of protection that motorcycles offer in comparison to passenger cars and trucks, it is not surprising that this number, when adjusted to account for total vehicle miles traveled makes it many times more likely that a motorcyclist will be involved in a fatal accident than an occupant of a car. With this in mind, it is extremely important, when riding, to practice defensive driving and be aware of your surroundings at all times. However, you can never control the actions of the other drivers with whom you share the road.

Motorcycle riders are inherently less protected on the road than passengers in cars and trucks, and are therefore more vulnerable to serious injury or even death in the event of a collision with a larger, heavier car or truck. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, several thousand motorcyclists are killed every year in traffic accidents. While motorcyclists account for less than one percent of all vehicle miles traveled in the country, they account for well over ten percent of traffic fatalities. It is extremely important while riding to be alert and aware of your surroundings, and ready to react to the unexpected. However, it may be even more important for drivers of cars and trucks to be alert to the presence of motorcycles, bicycles, pedestrians, and anyone else on the road that is vulnerable.
