& Intelligent Advice
Who Is Liable in A Bicycle Accident?
The most important question in any accident case is who is liable for the accident that caused the victim to be injured. Bicycle accidents are some of the most difficult cases to establish liability since there are different rules governing cyclists and automobiles. In fact, some of the rules that cyclists adhere to put them in danger rather than protecting them.
The “side-of-the-road” rule accounts for some of the most common types of bike accidents:
- Hitting an open car door
- Being side-swiped by a passing vehicle
- Being hit by a vehicle making a right turn
It is not uncommon for negligent drivers and their insurance companies to attempt to hold the injured cyclists at fault for the bicycle accident. Many drivers view cyclists as a nuisance and do not even know the specific road regulations that cyclists follow in order to maintain public safety. At Bovo Law Group, our firm believes that bicyclists in Denver deserve the same equal rights on the road as motorists. We are very familiar with Denver’s bicycle laws and will devote our resources to building a case against the driver who hurt you.

Bike Laws in Colorado
While there are some regulations that cyclists share with vehicle drivers, there are also many regulations that are specific to cyclists. Cyclists must abide by these regulations. In fact, failure to do so can negatively impact a bicycle accident case.
- When riding a bicycle, take these precautions:
- Never ride against traffic
- Ride on paved shoulders and bike lanes when present and hazard-free
- Ride single-file on curved roads without lanes or shoulders
- Use hand signals to indicate your movements
- Use a headlight, taillight, and reflectors in low light or at night
- Make eye contact with drivers
- Don’t assume the right of way
- Wear helmets, glasses, gloves, and other protective gear
