Common advice given to new motorcyclists by experienced riders is, “Assume you are invisible and operate your motorcycle accordingly.”
Two-thirds of all car-motorcycle accidents are caused by the automobile driver, not the rider. Drivers either don’t see or don’t bother to look out for something smaller than the average car. Consequently, almost 70 percent of wrecks involving motorcycles happen at street intersections where cars turn in front of motorcycles or rear-end them.
The difference in size makes a collision between car and motorcycle especially dangerous for the rider, resulting in catastrophic or even fatal injuries.
The experienced lawyers at Heuser & Heuser will work with the victim and/or the family to figure out present and future needs and secure the maximum money damages for our client. We have been helping accident victims in Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Alamosa, the Arkansas Valley, Pikes Peak and elsewhere along the Front Range for 25 years.
Make sure you and anyone else in the accident are not in danger of further injury from passing traffic, and that everyone who was hurt receives medical attention.
The next thing you should do is get the right legal protection. The motorcycle accident lawyers at Heuser & Heuser will start to work for you on day one, gathering and collecting as much information as possible about the scene of the accident, including witness statements and photos. We can use this information along with medical documents, police reports and other records to win your case.
To further support your claim, we may conduct an accident investigation to establish the sequence of events that led to the accident. Working with experts to reconstruct the collision can reveal details that are crucial to a successful case.

With a high potential for grievous injuries and subsequent extended medical care, a motorcycle wreck can put a tremendous financial strain on the victim and his/her family.
The injured victim of a motorcycle accident or his family are entitled to a settlement that covers medical costs, repair or replacement for the motorcycle, compensation for pain and suffering, loss of wages as a result of the accident, as well as punitive damages.
Should the worst happen, the Heuser attorneys can represent the surviving members of the victim’s family in a wrongful death suit.

5 stars - Michelle AnglinMy husband and I were in a minor accident that ended up causing us a lot of physical trauma and eventually my need for spinal surgery. At first I didn't want to go through an attorney, but soon found out that the process with going through insurance companies on our own was not a smart choice. We decided to call Heuser and Heuser because they were highly recommended for being quick and very helpful. Ben Gifford and his paralegal Janis Kerwin handled our cases and they did not disappoint us. We could not have gotten through it without them and Janis stayed consistently on top of everything, keeping us in the loop and returned my calls when I needed anything. Ben is an excellent negotiator and our settlements were very fair and more than we had even anticipated! They did not take their time working on our case and settled it quickly without it having to go to court, which was what we wanted. I have nothing but positive things to say about them as a team and the rest of the staff was always curtious and friendly. I hope we will never need to hire them again, but if we do, they will be the first we will call and we will always recommend them to anyone who needs a competent team to ge them through a difficult time!

5 stars - Eric LievenI would highly recommend Ben Gifford from Heuser and Heuser. Ben listened to my story and took my case. He started working on my case and relentlessly pursued a resolution. Ben and his staff were very responsive and respectful. I really felt like I was taken care of and they made me feel important. Ben helped ease my anxiety with the case by taking control and explaining the issues to my satisfaction. The whole process was a positive experience. If anyone is looking for a lawyer I would highly recommend Ben.
