Broomfield is a bicycle-friendly community with plenty of helpful bike paths like the Broomfield Trail and the U.S. 36 Bikeway. Cycling is a fitness-friendly option for recreation and transportation within the Broomfield area, but when a driver’s careless or reckless actions cause an injury, an unprotected bicyclist doesn’t fare well against a car weighing as much as 4,000 pounds.

Common Causes of Bicycle Accidents in Broomfield

Bicyclists must follow traffic laws and practice vigilance in congested areas and along rural roadways, but negligent drivers are the most common cause of Broomfield bicycle accidents. Vehicle vs. Bicyclist accidents most often occur due to the following:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Failure to leave enough space between the vehicle and the bicycle while passing
  • Tailgating
  • Drivers making left turns
  • Car door accidents (a parked driver opens their door into the path of an approaching cyclist)

When a bicyclist suffers serious injuries due to any of the above negligent actions or due to a hazardous condition in a roadway or a defective bicycle part, the at-fault party is liable for the victim’s damages.

What Damages are Available for Compensation After a Bicycle Accident?

Because a significant or catastrophic injury quickly causes financial losses as well as pain and trauma, these consequences are known as “damages” in a claim for compensation against the party at fault. A successful claim recovers compensation for damages such as the following:

  • Reimbursement for medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses related to the injury
  • Lost wages
  • Future income loss or diminished future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Any other non-economic damages that might apply to your case such as disfigurement, traumatic limb loss, emotional trauma, or loss of enjoyment of life compensation.

When someone else causes an injury due to their actions or negligence, they are responsible for the damages. Compensation typically comes from the negligent party’s insurance. Injuries in bicycle accidents range from broken bones and road rash to spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries, all with varying levels of economic and non-economic damages to the victim.
