Biker killed in car collision outside Denver

Drivers in Colorado would probably tell you winter is the most hazardous month, as snowdrifts and iced roads can cause slippery dangers whether they are expected or not. For motorcyclists, however, the warmer months are often trouble because few bikers brave frozen roads. The rush to the road in good weather can increase the chances of a collision with a car.

Many scenic parts of America, including huge swaths of the Centennial State, make for epic rides whether solo or with a crew in formation. Partners make rides safer, as more drivers can spot a motorcycle formation faster than a solo biker and make the required changes to compensate before a possible accident.

A visiting biker died in a hospital outside Denver after his motorcycle was struck by a car. The 20-year-old victim survived for several weeks after the collision and underwent procedures designed to save his life, including the amputation of part of one of his legs.

Although he appeared to be improving, he passed away after an infection began to affect his entire system. The driver of the car that struck his motorcycle was cited for driving without a license or proof of vehicle insurance.

Victims of motorcycle accidents and the survivors of bike crash fatalities may have a case in civil court for financial damages to help with recovery or the difficult process of moving on. An attorney can help consult with victims and their families on the best way to determine if reimbursement of expenses and compensation for noneconomic damages are warranted by the specifics of a road incident.
