We're Here to Help
When you need a motorcycle accident injury attorney in Denver, we’re here to help. Our lawyer assists and represents clients that were hurt in a motorcycle accident and wanted to file a claim for personal injury.
As with any type of motor vehicle accident, motorcycle accidents can cause serious injuries in an instant. An injury from a motorcycle accident, however, is often catastrophic because of the rider’s direct exposure to the roadway, debris, and other vehicles. Severe injuries are more common to motorcycle riders and can even occur in accidents at low speeds. Brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and lost limbs are common in motorcycle accidents.
Although helmets are proven to save lives, they certainly cannot prevent all injuries. Riders aged 18 and over are not required to wear helmets in Colorado. Riders under 18 are required to wear a helmet. In addition, in Colorado, some form of eye protection is legally required for all riders-drivers and passengers. The best eye protection comes from a visor on a helmet, but goggles or eyeglasses with lenses made from safety glass or plastic are acceptable. Regardless of the safety measures you may take, motorcycle injuries are still frequent. Injured riders should never try to negotiate with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. Insurance adjusters are trained to attempt to convince you to settle your case for much less than fair value. Retaining qualified counsel is always in your best interests.
If you’ve been hurt on or by a motorcycle, and live anywhere in Colorado, you might benefit from talking to an attorney. Mr. Halepaska has handled dozens of catastrophic motorcycle injury cases. We understand that the severity of injuries you can receive during a motorcycle accident can be far greater than when injured in a car accident.

How much will it cost me to bring an accident claim?
In most cases you will pay nothing at all whether your case is successful or not.
Is there a time limit?
Yes. In most cases three years, but there are exceptions. Now is the best time to act.
In most cases? What are the exceptions?
In high risk or complex cases we may agree with you from the outset that a success fee of up to 25% may be charged. This will not be payable if your claim is unsuccessful.

Probably not. Most cases settle. We often need to issue court proceeding to move matters along but it is rare for a case to go all the way to trial.
