Motorcyclists are some of the most vulnerable users of our roads. Motorcycles offer little protection to their riders and are often more powerful per pound than cars. This combination of a high-powered vehicle and few safety features is a recipe for serious accidents. If you have been in a serious motorcycle accident, you need an experienced Denver motorcycle accident attorney on your side to fight for you in the court of law.

Colorado’s traffic laws assign fault in auto accidents on a percentage basis, which is called comparative negligence. If you are more than 50% at fault for the accident, you cannot receive compensation for the damage you suffered in the accident. If you are less than 50% at fault, the amount of compensation you can receive is reduced by the percentage you were found at fault. So if you were found 30% at fault, the damages awarded to you would be reduced by 30%. The insurance companies try and reduce or deny payment for motorcycle accident victims by using these percentages.
Since Colorado is a comparative negligence state, it is important for your Colorado motorcycle accident attorney to properly determine how much you were at fault for your accident. At the Frickey Law Firm, we employ experts to thoroughly investigate the scene of the accident to make sure you are assigned the proper amount of fault after a motorcycle accident. Our experts analyze vehicle damage, skid marks, review footage of the accident (if applicable) and can even recreate the accident digitally to best represent our clients. The insurance company will do whatever it takes to assign more fault to you in order to minimize the damages you can recover. Our goal is to make sure you receive enough money to cover your medical bills and allow you to recover some quality of life.
