Passersby Save Motorcyclist – Denver Motorcycle Attorney

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

Forbes.com reports on a diverse group of people in Salt Lake City, UT lifting a car off of a motorcyclist after a collision.  The motorcyclist laid his vehicle down before colliding with the car.  The driver of the car was not seriously injured, and fortunately, the injuries to the motorcyclist do not include head trauma, despite the fact that he was not wearing a helmet.  After the collision, both vehicles burst into flame and came to rest, with the motorcyclist trapped underneath the car.  Several passersby, including a number of local college students, some construction workers, and at least one police officer stopped, and helped lift the car onto two wheels so that another person could drag the man out from underneath.

Have you been injured in a motorcycle accident?  You need an aggressive, dedicated Denver motorcycle accident attorney working for you.

Thanks in part to the work of the regular people who stopped to help, this collision did not result in fatal injury, but every year, over four thousand motorcyclists are killed in collisions in the United States.    Although this accident occurred in Utah, accidents very much like it happen all the time in and around Denver.  Motorcycles are an inherently risky mode of transportation, but one way that Denver motorcyclists can reduce the risks is to wear a helmet and riding leathers.  Not all helmets out there will give you the optimal protection you want if you are in a collision, so you need to be careful about what helmet you buy, making sure it is USDOT approved.  The Colorado State Patrol has some great information on motorcycle safety and facts.

When you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, it can be difficult to know what your rights are.  You need a dedicated, aggressive Denver motorcycle attorney who can evaluate your situation, explain your rights, and protect your legal interests.  There is a lot to think about when you have been injured, and Denver motorcycle accident attorney Wade Eldridge can help you decide whether your accident involved negligence and help you recover the compensation you deserve.  For more information, and a FREE CONSULTATION, contact Wade at (303)861-4222.
