Colorado Springs Motorcycle Accident Attorney
What is Rider Justice? It is a home for motorcycle riders, their families, and their friends. We were founded by Scott O’Sullivan, a Colorado Springs motorcycle lawyer with over 25 years of experience fighting for bikers.
Scott has had a lifelong love affair with motorcycles. (He grew up on a farm in New Jersey, where he tore around the back roads like a demon.) When Scott decided to become a motorcycle lawyer, it was because he wanted to help bikers, who faced very stacked odds in the legal system. (There is a lot of bias against motorcycle riders, as you probably know.)
As he got to know more Colorado motorcycle riders, he realized that he wanted to do a lot more for the community, which has embraced him like a brother. Today, Rider Justice sponsors events, rallies and rides; hosts motorcycle safety training classes; and makes sure that bikers understand the insurance they need.
If you love motorcycles, you will love Rider Justice! And if you’ve been in a Colorado Springs motorcycle accident, Scott can help you fight a system that is stacked against you.
Call me as soon as possible after an accident
This sounds self-serving, but I sincerely mean it because there are many potential missteps that can wreck your case. Trying to face the insurance companies and hospital shenanigans on your own, when you are likely healing from significant injuries, is not a reasonable thing to expect from yourself or your family. Also, insurance companies will do everything they can to avoid paying you. You need someone on your side who knows their tricks.

How talking to a motorcycle lawyer helps you
Scott O’Sullivan speaks to injured bikers and their loved ones every day. Often, these people are scared, facing mounting medical bills, and they want to know, “Who will pay my hospital bills after my Colorado Springs motorcycle accident?”
Scott can very quickly help you understand your case and your rights. And this call is entirely free. Also, you will pay nothing for Scott to fight for your rights. Literally nothing will come out of your pocket. Once your case settles, your motorcycle attorney’s fee comes from the settlement.
But why do you need a Colorado Springs motorcycle attorney after an accident?
First of all, bikers aren’t treated fairly by cops and the judicial system. There is a bias against bikers throughout the process. A motorcycle lawyer can also do the following:
- Take all of the insurance companies’ phone calls off your to-do list. You never have to speak to one of those creeps again.
- Identify all of the “pots” where you may be able to get money. Often, victims only look to the other guy’s insurance for their settlement, but their own insurance might also be available, with no penalties.
- Help to reduce your medical bills. (Not all attorneys do this. Scott does.)
- Help to get your motorcycle fixed or replaced.

“Being in a motorcycle accident is traumatizing and terrifying. I get calls every day from people who are dealing with life-threatening injuries, on top of medical bills that could send them into financial ruin. It is just too much for one person to deal with. And their loved ones have a lot to manage, too! Suddenly, a normal, simple life is thrown into complete chaos, with doctor’s appointments, insurance company calls, bills piling up. This is exactly why I became an attorney: to help people at their greatest hour of need. I have been to Colorado Springs motorcycle accident victims’ homes where I walk into a home full of fear, and I walk out having provided some comfort, a path forward, and some hope. And I fight like hell for these people because they just didn’t deserve anything they’re facing.”

Top 4 Worst Roads for Motorcycles in Colorado Springs
There are a lot of things to love about Colorado Springs, including the amazing rides just west of town. But the roads in the heart of the city are dangerous for motorcycles. So many of the roads are fronted by businesses, with blind entrances where cars come shooting out. Not to mention all the crazy left-hand turns in front of oncoming traffic. Bikers need to stay alert. Here are the Top 4 Worst Roads for Motorcycles in Colorado Springs.
- Academy Boulevard: This snaking Colorado Springs road travels from way up north to way down south and all along the way, bikers face dangers. The business entrance areas are mostly unmarked and blind. The twists and turns mean bikers have to take left-hand turns in some pretty crazy situations. Give yourself a lot of room on this road.
- West Cimarron Street: The exchange at Cimarron and I-25 has the distinction of being the most dangerous intersection in Colorado Springs. If you look at a satellite image of the intersection, it’s no wonder so many bikers get hurt here. It’s confusing as hell!
- North Powers Boulevard: Colorado Springs commuters and motorcycle riders take North Powers Boulevard every day to get to and from work. It’s busy with soccer moms, Air Force employees, and bikers. Luckily, there are plans underway to make it safer, with quite a few overpasses eliminating some of those scary intersections.
- I-25: It’s hard to decide where a biker is more at risk in Colorado Springs: on the insane stop-and-go roads in the heart of town, or on I-25 where speeds and frustrated drivers converge to make for some tricky, risky riding. Make sure to give yourself plenty of room and stick to the rules of the road.
