In Boulder, as well as throughout Colorado, more people are choosing to ride motorcycles as their daily mode of transportation. Though motorcycles have their benefits, they also can be dangerous. Many other drivers fail to share the road with motorcycle riders and, as a result, the motorcycle riders often bear the brunt of these actions. Statistics show that motorcycle riders are 35 times more likely to be killed in an accident than individuals in passenger cars.

Any driver on the roadway is required to act as a reasonably prudent man. When a motorcycle accident takes place, your attorney will be attempting to prove that the other party was not acting reasonably and, as a result, was negligent. The Boulder motorcycle accident lawyers at Zinda Law Group will help you prove that another party failed to act reasonably and that the other party’s negligence caused your injuries.
Evaluating a Motorcycle Accident Claim
You will quickly learn that many motorcycle accident cases do not go to trial. The insurance companies and opposing parties will often attempt to settle in order to save on the cost of litigation. Settlements are often beneficial to the injured party, as they tend to occur much earlier in the legal process. As a result, it is important to consult with an experienced Boulder motorcycle accident attorney in order to properly evaluate a settlement offer. Our attorneys will be able to come up with a proper valuation, which takes into account the likelihood that you will win and how much you may receive from a jury.
Claiming Proper Damages
The jury is charged with making the final determination in any motorcycle accident case. Therefore, you must work with your attorneys to account for each expense so that they can be properly presented to the jury. Juries can consider the following damages:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Physical disfigurement
It is important to seek the right amount of damages initially because once you settle your claim you cannot go back and ask for more.
