Motorcycle accident case reaches settlement in Colorado

A woman filed a lawsuit against the county sheriff's office and animal control. The lawsuit stemmed from a motorcycle accident that occurred on a Colorado highway while she was riding as a passenger. She was initially seeking $500,000 and ended up recovering $50,000 in damages.

The accident reportedly occurred during the summer of last year when the woman was a passenger on a motorcycle. An animal control officer made a sudden turn in the path of the motorcycle, resulting in a damaging T-bone collision. The woman was thrown from the bike and suffered a substantial amount of injuries to her back and head. The animal-control officer was issued a citation for making an unlawful left turn.

The county conducted an investigation into the incident and analyzed the woman's injuries as well as property damage. The animal control officer was not reprimanded for her driving actions and the sheriff's office believes that she already received her punishment when she was issued a citation. The county settled with the woman in the amount of $50,000.

A motorcycle accident in Colorado can leave a victim physically drained from their injuries. In regard to this matter, the victim pursued a personal injury lawsuit against the county for damages sustained from the crash. The victim suffered a number of injuries and it is likely that she was forced to lose time from her place of employment to fully recover. The county took responsibility for the accident and was able to reach a settlement offer which the woman accepted.
