  • Riders under 18 must wear a helmet approved by the DOT.

Motorcycle Accident Claims and Recovery

Motorcycle accident claims are different from car accident claims due to additional prejudices and liability issues that come from the biased actions of reckless riders. Hence, most juries can reduce or reject settlement claims. Hiring an experienced Denver motorcycle accident attorney to represent you can help you reach a fair settlement. They can calculate your damages and argue for full compensation by removing the bias and winning over the jurors.

With their help, you can recover compensation for various expenses, such as:

  • Past and future medical bills, including doctor’s visits and therapy
  • Lost wages due to inability to work
  • Property damage, including repairs or replacement
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent disability or scarring
