Overcoming Drivers’ and Jurors’ Prejudices Against Motorcyclists
People who drive cars commonly have a prejudice against motorcyclists. It can be difficult to see a motorcycle on the road, especially when drivers are not paying attention or do not care about motorcyclists. Because of this, many drivers take the attitude that motorcyclists must look out for cars and not vice-versa. When drivers of cars or commercial trucks think they own the road and fail to see motorcycles, the results can be tragic.
Motorcyclists have as much right to the road as any other driver. As experienced Colorado Motorcycle Accident Lawyers, we have been able to overcome the prejudice some drivers have against our clients and get them the medical and financial recovery they need and deserve for their personal injuries and property damage. We work closely with engineers, accident reconstructionists, medical and forensic experts, rehabilitation experts, and others who can help us fully, evaluate the circumstances of each case and the needs of each client.
