Colorado is a bicycle-friendly state with access to an array of trails and bike paths, including 119 miles of trails in Aurora alone. When an accident occurs between a 4,000-pound vehicle and an unprotected bicyclist, the result is usually serious or catastrophic injuries to the bike rider. 

Bicyclists in Aurora must carefully follow traffic laws and practice safety protocols, but drivers owe a duty of care to take all reasonable measures to safely share the roadway with bicyclists. When a driver breaches that duty and causes serious harm, the injury victim deserves full compensation.

What Commonly Causes Bicycle Accidents?

Despite the many miles of bike routes and paths in Aurora, cyclists must also share the roadways with vehicles to reach many community destinations. Cyclists have a right to use all Colorado roadways other than interstate highways. Drivers must take proper precautions. Sadly, this isn’t always the case. Data shows that 20 cyclists were killed on Colorado roads in 2022, and many more suffered serious injuries. Common causes of bicycle accident injuries in Colorado include the following:

  • Distracted drivers
  • Speeding drivers
  • Aggressive drivers
  • Drivers who fail to leave enough room while passing a cyclist
  • Drivers making left turns
  • Car door accidents
  • Drunk drivers
  • Drivers who fail to yield the right of way
  • Drivers following too closely

Less commonly, the at-fault party in a bicycle accident may be a negligent road maintenance agency or the maker of a defective bicycle component.

What Compensation Is Available in a Bicycle Accident Claim in Aurora?

Bicycle accidents often leave victims seriously injured with a long road to recovery. Even less severe injuries may result in a large medical bill and income loss. Common compensation in successful bicycle accident claims includes the following:

  • Property damage to a bicycle
  • Medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Future income loss
  • Diminished future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Other non-economic damages that might apply such as loss of enjoyment of life compensation, disfigurement, or traumatic loss of limb

Your Aurora bicycle accident attorney will carefully calculate your damages and make a compelling case for maximum compensation against the at-fault party’s insurance company.
