As a motorcycle rider in Colorado, you can enjoy the freedom of the mountain roads during our many days of sunshine. But on a motorcycle, you do not have the same physical barriers to protect you as a driver in a car or truck. Other careless drivers often do not give you the respect they should as another motorist, which can lead to accidents causing catastrophic injuries or death.
Your Rights as a Motorcycle Rider
Many victims of motorcycle accidents think that the law is stacked against them. Motorcyclists have a right to the road, too, and when other drivers ignore that, they can be held liable for your injuries. You are protected under Colorado law just like any other driver or passenger out on the roadways.

Causes and Liability in Motorcycle Accidents
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident, several parties my be at fault, including the:
- Driver of the vehicle that hit you if they were acting negligently
- Owner of the semi-truck if you were involved in a truck accident
- Manufacturer of the motorcycle if defective parts caused your accident
Many motorcycle accidents are caused by a hit-and-run driver, who did not stay at the scene to take responsibility for the accident. You may be eligible to receive additional punitive damages because they failed to act to help or notify authorities after the accident.
