In Denver and across Colorado, it is important that drivers of conventional vehicles and motorcyclists share the road as vigilantly as possible to make certain of everyone’s safety. Given their vulnerability, a motorcyclist can suffer serious injuries in any crash. These incidents are made worse when it is a drunk driving accident. It is exponentially worse if the driver did not have proper insurance. Drivers who are under the influence will be lacking in judgment and reaction time, leaving them little opportunity to stop when they come across a motorcyclist. For the rider, having legal assistance is crucial to pursue compensation in a legal filing.
A crash between an apparent drunk driver and a 19-year-old motorcyclist caused severe injuries to the rider. The rider and friends were out for a ride when a sedan went into the injured man’s path. Upon investigation, law enforcement found that the 41-year-old driver of the sedan showed evidence of being under the influence. The motorcyclist flew on top of the car and the driver continued driving. The motorcyclist was wearing full protective gear and a helmet. He was taken to the hospital with brain trauma. He also has other injuries. The driver was arrested for DWI, driving without insurance, failure to yield, and vehicular assault.
Motorcyclists are relatively unprotected when compared to drivers of conventional vehicles. Even when they take all the necessary steps to be as safe as possible, a crash can leave them with serious and life-changing injuries. Brain trauma can dramatically change a person’s life and how they will function for the rest of their lives. Combining that with other injuries that come about from a motorcycle accident and they will face financial, personal and physical problems. If the driver did not have insurance and was under the influence, it adds several layers to the accident. Having legal help is essential.
A motorcyclist was hit by an alleged drunk driver and suffered multiple injuries. The driver was not only believed to have been under the influence, but did not have the necessary insurance. A law firm that has experience in a drunk driving accident, lack of insurance cases and motorcycle crashes is integral to filing a case to receive compensation and should be called immediately.
