Pueblo Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Riding a motorcycle poses an increased risk of injury if an accident should occur due to the lack of safety features such as airbags, seat belts, and other safety devices normally found in vehicles. When an accident occurs, most injuries are serious and catastrophic in nature. A catastrophic injury is devastating to the individual and their family.

Unfortunately, car accidents involving motorcycles occur almost every day in Colorado. Nationally, there are over 4,000 fatal motorcycle accidents that occur annually according to reports at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Of these accidents, nearly 75 percent involve another automobile.
One of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents in Pueblo is the other driver’s failure to see the motorcycle. According to a Hurt Report on motorcycle crash causes, nearly 45 percent of motorcycle accidents involve serious injury. Astonishingly, just 40 percent of those motorcycle riders were wearing helmets. Many of these accidents result in traumatic brain injury, amputation, or even wrongful death. It’s never been more important to take necessary safety precautions when riding a motorcycle. Our personal injury lawyers in Pueblo urge you to wear your helmet and protective clothing when riding to avoid injuries such as brain injuries, broken bones,
cuts, scrapes and bruises (road rash), spinal cord injury, and wrongful death.
