CO motorcyclists face many risks on the road

As a Colorado motorcyclist, you no doubt go to great lengths to ensure that safety remains a top-priority. However, despite your precautions you still face a number of risks on the road, especially when it comes to distracted or unaware drivers. Here at Ciancio Ciancio Brown, P.C., we know just how devastating motorcycle accidents can be, whether they involve significant debilitating injury or even death in some cases.

The Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association provides insight into the many risks facing you as a motorcyclist on a daily basis. In recent years up to 87 motorcyclists succumbed to injuries incurred as a result of an accident within Colorado. Nationwide, motorcyclists make up 14 percent of all deaths involving motor vehicles, and are 26 times more likely to experience a fatality when compared to passenger vehicles.  

To reduce the chance of a serious accident occurring, drivers are cautioned to take extra care when sharing the road with motorcyclists. Vehicles should maintain a safe distance behind motorcycles in the event of sudden maneuvers. Being aware of the surrounding environment is equally important, especially when a motorcyclist is making a left-hand turn or changing lanes. 

Of course, there are also steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of a fatality. Wearing a helmet can have a huge impact on the outcome of an accident. Both operators and passengers of motorcycles see their risk of death greatly reduced when helmets are worn, and the National Highway Safety Administration claims that in 2013 helmet usage saved the lives of 1,630 people.
