Bicycle & Pedestrian Accidents

Haltzman Law Firm icon
Fort Collins has an extremely active population, like the rest of Colorado. Often times residents elect to walk or bike somewhere over driving, it is just what we do. Whether it is the health or environmental benefits, more and more people are electing to walk from location to location whenever possible. Although walking may seem like a much safer alternative to driving or even riding a bicycle, statistics show otherwise. The National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) recorded for 2013 that of all transportation fatalities, 14% of them were pedestrians.

Driver Responsibility

In all scenarios, our Fort Collins personal injury team at Haltzman Law Firm believes that it is the financial and civil responsibility of commercial drivers and regular everyday drivers alike to prioritize pedestrian safety, as they are much more susceptible to traumatic injuries than those seat belted in motor vehicles.

If you or your loved one suffered fatal, serious or even moderate injuries that affect your everyday life as a pedestrian in Colorado, our Fort Collins accident attorneys want to represent you and secure the compensation you deserve.

Fort Collins Bicycle & Vehicle Collisions

Bicyclists face similar risks on the roads in Northern Colorado and can be vulnerable to inattentive drivers, resulting in horrific personal injury. Fort Collins is the home to New Belgium Brewery who puts on Tour De Fat a bicycling event that hosts tens of thousands of cyclists in September. Simply put, Fort Collins residents love their bikes. Unfortunately, SUV’s and most passenger vehicles can weigh in excess of two hundred times of that of a bike, which can spell disaster for a cyclist in even a low speed collision. Haltzman Law Firm has the legal knowledge to protect your rights if you are involved in a bike collision with a multi-ton vehicle. Call us now at (970) 692-3440.

  • Zero Stress!

    “Matt was amazing! When I hired him I was in a pretty bad situation. He took care of everything, I continued with my life and knew that he was working hard to sort it out. Long story short. In less than a month everything was sorted out. Couldn’t ask for more. Good guy with great efficiency. Thank you, keep up the awesome practice.”

    “The way Matthew handled my case was truly impressive. He’s a true strategist, tactician and advocate. He consulted with me on every legal move and had ideas that I would have never thought of. Matthew was very knowledgeable and shared his expertise upfront in the process regarding my case. He set proper expectations and provided excellent advice along the way. Matthew knows the court system very well and is an excellent communicator. I would venture to guess he’s the best lawyer in Northern Colorado and one of the only Super Lawyers who practices PI and Criminal Defense in Colorado.”

    – Ryan

  • The Best Attorney

    “I’m so glad we found Matt Haltzman to take care of our case. He was so easy to work with, kind, and really listened to us. It was such a pleasure working with him. He was so professional and all my worries were gone. I had complete faith in him and he got our entire case dismissed. It would have been devastating to us had he not been such a great lawyer. We barely had to do anything, one meeting and one court appearance and the whole thing was thrown out. I would recommend him to anyone. He worked really hard for us. He is very bright and excellent at what he does. Thank you Matt! You truly saved us.”
