Tragic Longmont Motorcycle Crash | Boulder Motorcycle Crash Lawyer

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, a tragic motorcycle accident happened just north of Longmont when two riders on a Harley-Davidson, who were not wearing helmets, were thrown off and killed. Investigators report that the accident was a single-vehicle crash, and have not released any information regarding the cause of the crash. It is believed that speed may have played a role in the accident, which is still under investigation.

Have you been seriously injured in a motorcycle crash that was caused by another driver’s carelessness? Speak with a dedicated Boulder motorcycle crash lawyer today to discuss your options.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports over 4000 motorcycle fatalities from traffic accidents every year. In the event of a crash, motorcyclists are less protected than people riding in cars or trucks. As a result, they are more susceptible to serious injury in those crashes.  In some accidents, negligent drivers may even face Boulder criminal charges.   While it is important to note that Colorado does not have a universal motorcycle helmet law, meaning that riders age 18 and over legally are allowed to choose for themselves whether to wear a helmet or not, studies have shown in many cases that helmets can prevent or decrease the severity of many injuries.   Nevertheless, because not wearing a helmet is a choice that Coloradans have the right to make, if you were injured in an accident in which you were not wearing a helmet, and in which the other driver was at fault, the lack of helmet should not affect your case.
