I-70 Motorcycle Fatality

November 12, 2013

According to Fox31 News in Denver, a woman riding as a passenger on a motorcycle was killed in a traffic accident Sunday evening, November 11, 2013, on Interstate 70 near Genesee.  The accident occurred at about 5:30 p.m. when the eastbound driver of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle lost control and collided with the back of a Honda CRV SUV.  Both the driver and the passenger were ejected from the bike.

The male rider suffered serious injuries and was flown to a local hospital. The woman was transported by ground ambulance and was unfortunately pronounced dead at the hospital.  Neither rider was wearing a helmet.

As a rider myself, I am aware that riding comes with certain dangers and a significant number of motorcycle accidents resulting in serious injuries and deaths each year.  The revocation of many state’s laws requiring helmets has led to an increase in motorcycle accident fatalities.  If you, or someone you know, have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you need to have a Denver motorcycle injury attorney team you can trust to pursue your rights following an accident. You should strongly consider obtaining the advice of a Denver motorcycle accident lawyer before talking to any insurance company.  Let us worry about the claim and paperwork while you recover from your injuries or loss.  Don’t be fooled by the many motorcycle attorney websites on the internet which are really mass market advertising attorneys (many of whom are not even located in the state of Colorado) or are attorneys who do not appreciate the issues involved as they do not ride themselves.  At McDermott Law, your case will receive my personal attention.
