Denver Motorcycle Accident Lawyer 

Caring for Injured Bikers and Their Families in Englewood, Littleton, and Throughout Colorado

Have you or a loved one been the victim of a motorcycle accident? If so, contact our Littleton motorcycle accident lawyers at Curtis | Walton Law to speak directly with an attorney who rides.

We know that finding and choosing a motorcycle accident attorney in Colorado can be tough. However, it is important to remember that it is an insurance company's job to pay you as little as possible.

They will bring a team of lawyers against you, and it is crucial to have attorneys of your own to fight for you. We make it easy to speak with an attorney right away about your Denver motorcycle accident case and about receiving the compensation you deserve.

What Makes Us Different

Unlike our competitors, Curtis | Walton Law is a law firm run by bikers for bikers. From dirt bikes to street bikes, every attorney in our firm rides.

We are actively involved in the Colorado biker community—you can find our attorneys at just about every Colorado biker rally, ride, or event.

Our Denver motorcycle accident lawyer at Curtis | Walton Law is not afraid to take your case to trial if needed. Once there, we will help a jury see to see your motorcycle accident how it actually happened—not how the insurance company wants them to see it.

What to Do Following a Motorbike Accident

The period following a motorcycle accident can be disorienting—you may be in shock, injured, or distressed. Yet, it is important to follow certain steps if you are physically able in order to prevent the at-fault driver and their insurance company from building a case against you.

After a motorcycle accident, make sure to do the following:

  • If you are hurt, seek medical attention right away
  • If you are undamaged, check on the well-being of your passengers and anyone else involved
  • Call the police (and get the badge numbers and contact information of whoever shows up)
  • Take pictures and videos of the scene of the accident, the damage to your vehicle, and of your and your passenger’s injuries
  • If the insurance company sends their own investigator to the scene or calls you after the accident, do not talk to them

Even better, tell the insurance investigator you’re retaining Curtis | Walton Law and that your attorney will be in touch shortly. Then give us a call at 720-815-4402 or contact us online.

What To Do if You Think You May Be Hurt

Regardless of how you feel following your motorcycle accident, seek medical attention immediately. Don’t tough it out because you likely won’t notice all your injuries until shortly after the accident. Even if you don’t think you are seriously injured, slight aches and pains can turn into serious medical problems in the future.

Nothing is more important than your life and your health, so even if you don’t feel like you need one, go see a doctor. Don’t forget, your medical treatment is an important part of your case, and accident-related doctor visits are often paid for by your health insurance and the at-fault person’s insurance.

Why Should I Hire a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer?

There is nothing stopping you from filing a personal injury claim against an insurance company by yourself. In fact, insurance companies want you do this.

Without the pressure of a skilled and knowledgeable personal injury attorney, an insurance company will do everything they can to delay and minimize the value of your case. They do this to wear you down and pressure you into taking a fraction of your case’s value.

Insurance companies can afford to hire an army of lawyers who will do all they can to make sure that you are paid the smallest amount possible. This is why you need a skilled attorney to fight for you and your interests.

Hiring an attorney is especially important when you are facing:

  • Serious injuries
  • Large medical bills
  • Loss of wages

Insurance adjusters are experts at reducing your case’s value or denying it altogether. You need us because we know the law, we know the rules, and we know insurance companies. Don’t do it alone.

What Traits Should a Good Motorcycle Lawyer Have?

When you or a loved one has been hurt in a motorcycle accident, it’s important you work with someone who possess a deep understanding of the complexity and severity of such accidents, as well as the knowledge how to move forward during the crucial time period immediately after.

Other things you should look for in a motorcycle accident attorney are:

  • Experience with motorcycles
  • Legal experience in your state
  • Knowledge of the laws in your state
  • Knowledge about the local courts’ rules

All the above traits can be found in every Curtis | Walton Law attorney. Unlike most other accident lawyers, our lawyers know motorcycles just as well as they know the legal system.

What Are Damages, and Which Damages Can I Recover?

Damages are money given to someone who has been injured. Financial damages fall into two categories, compensatory and punitive damages.

  • Reliable Communication
    We pride ourselves on our consistent communication and are committed to keeping clients updated on the status of their cases.
  • Willing to Travel to You
    When an injury makes travel difficult, our attorneys are willing to meet you at home or in the hospital, so you can focus on your recovery.
  • Responsive to Your Needs

    Our attorneys are available by phone, email, or text after hours and on weekends to ensure that you get the legal care you deserve.

  • Access to Experts

    We have fostered relationships with respected doctors and specialists to ensure you get high-quality care with no upfront costs.

  • Individualized Legal Care
    We believe that our clients deserve tailored solutions and are focused on treating each client like our only one.
  • Committed to Our Community
    We are avid members of Colorado's biker community and are proud to fight for them when they need us most.

What Are Compensatory Damages?

Compensatory damages are exactly what they sound like. They are compensation for losses suffered by an injured person.

Some of the most common forms of compensatory damages are:

  • Property damage (e.g. damage to your bike, gear, cell phone, etc.)
  • The costs of past and future medical care
  • Lost wages (i.e. the money you lost because your injuries prevented you from working)
  • Loss of earning potential (i.e. the money you will lose in the future because of your injuries)
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium (i.e. money given to compensate for damages suffered by a spouse or family members of an injured person, e.g. a spouse being unable to cook, clean, or be a companion as a result of their injuries)

Determining dollar values for some of the above damages—such as pain and suffering and loss of consortium—is an extremely difficult thing to do. Getting insurance companies to pay you these damages is even harder.

When you’re dealing with insurance companies, determining dollar values for something as straightforward as medical bills is a struggle. For example, if you incurred $50,000 in medical bills because of an accident, you should receive $50,000 for these bills. While this may seem obvious, insurance companies stay in business by arguing that you are owed less—much less.

Insurance agents are experts at coming up with excuses to not pay you. Perhaps the insurance company refuses to pay you by saying you previously injured the same body parts you hurt in your accident—this is a common ploy, even if your prior injury was ten years ago. An insurance adjuster may trick you into saying something harmful to your case in an interview or the insurance company may argue that your doctor charged too much for your treatment, so they won’t pay the entire bill.

These roadblocks and more are why you need an experienced Curtis | Walton Law attorney by your side making sure that you receive the compensation that you deserve.

What Are Punitive Damages?

These are damages that serve as a punishment for an at-fault party. This applies particularly in cases of outrageous negligence or illegal behavior, such as being injured by an intoxicated driver.

Unlike compensatory damages, punitive damages can only be awarded by a jury. If you decide to handle your injury claim without a motorcycle accident lawyer in Colorado, you would likely never know about, let alone receive punitive damages.

How Can I Collect Damages?

Getting money from an insurance company is like getting water from a stone. Our attorneys at Curtis | Walton Law know that having an injury claim is one of the most difficult experiences in a person’s life, especially if they are already in pain from their accident. This is why we employ a team of experienced and friendly Denver motorcycle accident lawyers who are willing to fight the insurance companies for you, so you can focus on your family and your health.
