There are many unique aspects of bicycle accidents in Colorado Springs that make these incidents extremely dangerous. Therefore, cyclists should be prepared to take certain steps in the event of a serious collision. If you suffered injuries while riding your bike, our skilled lawyers could help you take legal action and seek fair compensation.

Common Scenarios that Result in Bicycle Wrecks in Colorado Springs

One common scenario that results in a bike wreck is when a cyclist rides too close to a lane of traffic and gets into an accident with a car. Another situation that may occur is when a cyclist riding in the mountains, and they get hit by a distracted driver. A bicyclist also may cause an accident if they are not paying attention to their surroundings.

The types of accidents that are unique to bicycle accidents in Colorado Springs are a cyclist getting hit by a car door, a bike rider being hit by a vehicle making a right turn, or a car coming out of an intersection and hitting a bicyclist.

What Makes Bike Accidents Different from Other Types of Collisions?

One of the biggest differences when it comes to bicycle accidents is how exposed a rider is compared to a driver of a motor vehicle. This exposure leaves a bicycle rider open to serious injuries if they are involved in a car-versus-bike collision.

A large majority of bicyclists are struck by the front of a vehicle, leading to fatal crashes. Common injuries in bike accidents are head trauma, facial injuries, spine injuries, brain damage, ruptured discs, bone fractures, broken bones, and wrongful death.

Some factors that lead to bicycle crashes being more common than pedestrian accidents are the speed of the cyclist versus a pedestrian. Additionally, because pedestrians are walking in crosswalks with the right of way and bicyclists ride in traffic next to moving vehicles, this presents more of a risk to cyclists.

How to Avoid Cycling Accidents in Colorado Springs

A cyclist must constantly be aware of their surroundings, as there are many dangers outside of their control. Some of those dangers include a car leaving a driveway, a grate in the road, animals running around, potholes in the road, a car door opening, a moving vehicle, or pedestrians. Also, unlike a car or truck, a bicycle does not have any exterior protection.

To become more prepared, bicyclists can take classes on biking safety. Additionally, these individuals should always follow the rules of the road. For instance, bicyclists should not drink alcohol while they are riding their bikes.

“Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.”

I was uneasy about reaching out to a law firm after being in an accident that left me injured and my vehicle totaled. I don’t care for the idea of suing for what was very clearly an accident. However, after learning more about the overall process of working with a professional team to navigate the murky waters of the insurance world, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the experience wasn’t as gross as I’d originally felt about it. Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.

I never have a problem with getting a response when I need them – which is not the case with most other firms. They really truly care about each client. As a plus, they always have positive attitudes, which matters tremendously when you are in a stressful legal situation.
