The Devastation Caused By Motorcycle Accidents

You may not realize how many motorcycle crashes occur every year in the United States, what the leading causes are or how to use this kind of information to prove negligence. We do.

At Doehling Law, our experienced lawyers can help you with all of these steps if you or a loved one is a victim in a motorcycle crash because of someone else's negligence. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident in Grand Junction, it is essential to:

  1. Preserve evidence and conduct an independent investigation of the crash.
  2. File a lawsuit before the deadline imposed by the Colorado statute of limitations.

After an accident, do not hesitate to send us a message to our offices (Grand Junction, Glenwood Springs and Aspen for your convenience) to schedule a free initial consultation to learn more about your legal rights and options. We can also be reached by calling 970-628-3907.

National Crash Resources

The National Crash Analysis Center Library is the most comprehensive source of crash test data and vehicle safety reports in the nation, including motorcycle charts and information collected and distributed by Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT).

In certain cases, our attorneys may use information from these sources to help build a strong personal injury case involving a motorcycle accident:

  • Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS): Contains traffic crash data for all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico
  • National Automotive Sampling System (NASS): Provides nationally representative data on vehicle crashes for understanding the vehicle-trauma experience and to determine national crash trends
  • FHWA's Roadside Safety Library (RSL): Compilation of information related to the complex interactions between automobiles, the occupants and roadside objects during a collision
  • NHTSA's office of Crashworthiness research series: Collections of NHTSA's extensive research and development, testing, investigation, data collection, and analysis activities
  • NHTSA Compliance series: Houses' independent test results of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards
  • NHTSA Defect Investigations: Extensive data related to various investigations
  • NHTSA's New Car Assessment Program (TRD/Docket): Provides consumers with a measure of vehicles' relative safety potential so they can make more informed purchase decisions
  • NHTSA's Biomechanics Test Database: Includes research and vehicle testing information to examine issues related to biomechanics, occupant protection, and crash dummy research, development and evaluation
  • NHTSA's Intelligent Cruise Control Field Operational Tests: NHTSA's crash avoidance research findings to help develop a broad understanding of how advanced technology can be used to help avoid collisions

When we represent you in a motor vehicle accident case, we aggressively defend your rights at each step in the process. We offer experienced and candid legal counsel, so you can make knowledgeable decisions.

We also work on a contingent-fee basis, which means we only get paid for our services if we recover monetary award or recovery of funds for you.
