Motorcycle deputy killed in collision


Denver motorcycle drivers enjoy the fresh air and beautiful scenery that can only be experienced by being so exposed to the outdoors. Unfortunately, motorcycle drivers also are significantly more at risk to die in a motorcycle accident. According to the NHTSA, motorcycle drivers are 35 times more likely to be killed in an accident than a car driver. Even when motorcycle drivers take precautions and wear a helmet and other protective gear, they are completely exposed to a collision.

A motorcycle deputy from Jefferson County was killed over the weekend when he was hit head-on in Arvada. As the motorcycle driver was heading north on Colorado 93 he was hit head-on by a negligent driver heading south and passing another vehicle. The motorcycle deputy was wearing a helmet and eye protection but suffered serious injuries and died at the scene. The driver of the car that hit the deputy was transferred with minor injuries to St. Anthony Central Hospital. Police are considering charges against the driver.

When a loved one is lost in a motorcycle accident the family left behind can face many uncertainties. The death of a loved one can result in unexpected medical expenses, funeral costs, loss of wages and other monetary and non-monetary damages. A legal professional skilled in wrongful death can help a family determine what happened the caused the fatal motorcycle crash and who is at fault. If there is a negligent driver at fault, wrongful death compensation may be able to be collected.

Motorcycle drivers enjoy certain freedoms that car and truck drivers don't have. Unfortunately they are also at a much higher risk of death from a collision. Denver drivers should always be aware of their surroundings and keep vigilant around motorcyclists.
