Motorcyclists Ride for Police | Pueblo Motorcycle Crash Lawyer

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

The 13th annual Blue Thunder Motorcycle Run, honoring the memories of fallen police officers, was held along the front range, according to CBS Denver. The run, which began in honor of Douglas County Deputy Ron King, who was killed in the line of duty in 1999, raised money for Englewood Police officer Jeremy Bitner, who died after being struck by a suspected drunk driver while engaged in a traffic stop in May. Each year, dozens of motorcyclists, many of them law enforcement officers themselves, ride along the front range in an effort to raise money for the families of lost officers, and to increase awareness of the dangers police officers face every day, particularly motorcycle patrol officers. One of the goals of the ride is to attract more riders each year; over 100 participated this year.

Pueblo Motorcycle Accident Attorney Motorcycle accidents can leave catastrophic injuries. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact a dedicated Pueblo motorcycle accident attorney today to discuss your options.

Over 4,500 motorcyclists are killed in traffic accidents every year, based on data reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Motorcycles represent a disproportionately high percentage of traffic fatalities when compared to total vehicle miles driven, which is due to a combination of factors. Certainly, there is no question that when riding a motorcycle, one is both less visible in traffic than a larger car or truck, and more vulnerable to serious injury or death in the event of a crash. It is extremely important for motorcyclists to be aware of their surroundings at all times, but also for drivers of cars and trucks to keep an eye out for smaller vehicles such as motorcycles and bicycles at all times.

Family Awarded $260,000 In Wrongful Death Sentence | Wrongful Death Lawyer

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

According to the Gazette, a former Harvard graduate student from Colorado Springs, has been ordered to pay a $260,000 civil judgement after being convicted of manslaughter in 2003 for fatally stabbing a Cambridge man. His conviction was later overturned and he reached a deal to serve two years in prison after his second trial ended in a hung jury. He was found negligent in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of the victim and ordered to pay $520,000, a judgement later reduced to $260,000.

Have you or someone you know suffered a tragic loss due to the negligence of another? Contact a wrongful death law firm as soon as possible to discuss your options.

Civil actions are very different from criminal charges. In a criminal case, the victim of the crime cannot receive financial compensation from the defendant if the defendant is found guilty. In a civil case, the victim may pursue a separate action against the defendant for financial compensation. In a case such as this, a family who has suffered a tragic loss may choose to pursue compensation to ensure financial security for a child or spouse left behind.
