Grand Junction Bicycle Accident Attorneys
Bicyclists take the brunt of the pain when they go up against 4,000-pound cars. Whether you were hit by a distracted driver, an aggressive driver, or a driver who just made an honest mistake, you should file a claim against that driver’s insurance company to get the money you need to recover from your injuries, lost time at work, and other collision-related expenses.
That doesn’t mean the insurance company will want to give it to you. In fact, they may try to prove that you were the cause of the accident. Let’s be clear—in Colorado, even if you, the bicyclist, made a wrong move, you can still recover money from the other party. It’s a legal concept called “contributory negligence,” and it says that as long as you were less at fault than the other guy, you can recover money, but less money than you would if you were 100% blameless.
The best way to maximize your recovery? Working with a no-nonsense Grand Junction car accident lawyer. At Peters & Nolan, LLC, we’ve taken many bike accident cases all the way to trial if we needed to in order to secure our clients’ future. We handle serious injury cases, and we do it very well.
