What Should You NOT do After a Motorcycle Accident?
Getting into a motorcycle accident can be overwhelming and stressful. The shock may lead to forgetting necessary steps
Do NOT do the following after getting into an accident:
- Flee the scene of the accident
- Forget to call 911 if you/someone else is injured
- Forget to document the accident (take photos, take pictures of the other driver’s license)
- Admit to fault
- Speak to the other drivers’ insurance without a lawyer present
- Failure to hire a lawyer
Do You Have to Wear a Motorcycle Helmet in Colorado?
In Colorado, motorcycle helmets are required for anyone who is under the age of 18. If you are 18 or older, you are not legally required to wear a helmet, no matter how much insurance you have or your level of riding experience.
Colorado law does require that motorcycle riders wear eye protection, such as goggles or a face shield, regardless of their age. Not wearing eye protection can have dangerous consequences as dust, bugs, or other debris could get into your eyes and impair your ability to safely operate your motorcycle and possibly cause an accident. It’s important to note that a windshield on the motorcycle does not count as adequate protection.
Motorcycle accidents can be caused by a wide range of factors but usually involve some type of driver error or negligence. Drivers are used to seeing other cars and large vehicles on the road but are not as vigilant about looking out for motorcyclists. We firmly believe that irresponsible individuals on the road should be held accountable for their actions, especially when they cause injury to other parties.
A few of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Failure to yield
- Illegal lane changes
- Texting and driving
- Distracted driving
- Talking on the phone
- Defective parts
- Inclement weather
- Poor roadway conditions
