There are many people who enjoy riding their motorcycle in Colorado. The scenery is spectacular and the freedom a motorcycle brings has an effect on the rider. Most of the time, motorcyclists are able to safely navigate our roads, but, occasionally, a serious motorcycle accident occurs.
A motorcycle rider was killed in a hit and run accident recently in Commerce City. The driver was in a silver and blue Dodge pickup when he hit the motorcyclist at East 72nd Place and Magnolia Street. The motorcyclist was taken to a local hospital where he died. Police are asking anyone with information regarding the accident to contact them.
No one expects their loved one to be in a serious accident. Unfortunately, these accidents can happen in the blink of an eye and change a family forever. The loved one is a valuable family member, companion, and breadwinner. If a family finds themselves in a situation where a loved one was seriously injured or killed in an accident due to no fault of their own, they may want to speak with a legal professional. An attorney can visit the accident scene, interview witnesses, review police reports, and help determine what happened, so the family can get the answers they deserve. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, funeral expenses, lost wages and other damages.
A serious accident can affect a family for many years to come. It is important to hold negligent drivers responsible for their actions, so they don’t harm anyone else.
