Lakewood Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Rider Justice helps Lakewood motorcycle riders in all kinds of ways. We were founded by motorcycle attorney Scott O’Sullivan, who has over 25 years of experience helping motorcycle accident victims get the compensation and care they need. But we go way above and beyond legal help for Lakewood riders.
Rider Justice hosts Lakewood rides and rallies, we meet up at Lakewood biker bars for live music, events and fundraisers. We sponsor and promote motorcycle safety, and we advocate for Colorado road laws that keep bikers safe.
Also, we talk one-on-one with bikers all day long about the kind of insurance they should carry because so many Colorado drivers only have the bare minimum (or zero) insurance coverage.
Finally, if you’ve been in a motorcycle accident in Lakewood, we passionately and doggedly fight for your rights and your care.
“When my friends get hurt in a Lakewood biker accident, it breaks my heart, and it galvanizes me to fight like a maniac for them. Is there a more loving, warm, generous community than the Lakewood biker community? I don’t think so! I’ve shared some beers at Dirty Dogs Roadhouse with bikers over the last few years and I am endlessly reminded that bikers are just deep-down good humans. My friends will tell you that I am eager to advise everyone on the kind of insurance they should have (though I don’t sell insurance), and I fight like hell for motorcycle accident victims. Rider Justice was founded to support the entire biker community with legal help, events, philanthropy and all-around fun. Please join us sometime soon!”
~Scott O’Sullivan, founder of Rider Justice

Here’s how we can provide some relief:
- It costs you absolutely nothing to talk to Lakewood motorcycle attorney Scott O’Sullivan. He can help you understand your case and what’s ahead.

“There are some Colorado personal injury attorneys out there who truly do not care if your accident was on a motorcycle or a bicycle or rollerblades. They don’t get it. They don’t understand the love between rider and bike. They don’t value the biker community, nor understand the pain that one biker’s accident causes throughout the biker family. I do. I have sat bedside in the hospital with riders and their families. I have attended fundraising rallies and rides. And I have won big settlements for injured bikers. If you want a lawyer who understands bikers, call me. I am here for you.”
~Scott O’Sullivan, Lakewood Motorcycle Accident Attorney
“Honestly, the most help that I got has been from Scott. Him getting us our settlement fast enough. Everything went smoothly. I just put my trust in him and I feel like he made the best decisions for me.”
– Ramon, Motorcycle Accident

Favorite Lakewood Motorcycle Rides and Destinations
- Top-of-the-Rockies Byway: Like a lot of rides in Colorado, you have to trek a little ways outside the Lakewood area to find the best routes. This incredible ride starts near Copper Mountain and takes you through Leadville, ending in Aspen. The highest point is on Independence Pass, which isn’t for the faint of heart, at 12,095 feet. (Stop in historic Leadville for lunch!)
- Mount Evans Scenic Byway: Just 30 miles outside Denver, you can climb 7,000 feet in just 28 miles as you ascend Mt. Evans! At the peak, you’ll reach 14,264 feet. (Bring cold weather gear because Colorado peaks are famous for their fickle weather patterns.) If you have a friend on your bike, tell them to keep an eye out for mountain goats while you keep your eye on the twisty road. Then, pull over and you can both enjoy the view!
- Lariat Loop: Looking for an urban ride? Check out some of the Lakewood area’s best destinations in this 40-mile loop. Start on Highway 6 in Golden, ride up Lookout Mountain (share the road with bicyclists and cars), then head to Genesee. Take Highway 74 through Evergreen to Morrison, where you can check out the famous Red Rocks Amphitheater.
Best Biker Bars in Lakewood
- Dirty Dogs Roadhouse: Dirty Dogs is a Rider Justice favorite. We host multiple events each year with the fine folks out at Dirty Dogs. It’s got everything you want: Live music (three stages!), Multiple bars, Heated patio, Great food, Strong cocktails, Quick and friendly service, and lots (LOTS) of other bikers.
- Misfits Sports Bar and Grill: Misfits Bar and Grill is a magnet for lively and entertaining individuals, both as employees and customers! With fourteen big screens surrounding the inside perimeter of the building, we’re sure to have whatever sports program you are looking for!
- The Rusty Bucket Bar and Grill: Lakewood boasts bars that cater to some of the Broncos’ biggest rivals, and the Rusty Bucket is one of them. If you’re a Steelers fan, this is the bar for you to meet up with likeminded friends… and bikers! Lots of TVs, great grub, and live music on Fridays and Saturdays.
Worst Roads for Motorcycles in Lakewood
- W. Colfax Avenue from Ingalls Street to N. Broadway: This is literally the deadliest road in Colorado. Anyone who has ridden any stretch of Colfax knows that it is fraught with business entrances and exits, left-hand turns, brutal intersections, and frustrated drivers who gun it through red lights. This particular stretch of Colfax was the source of 18 fatalities between 2018 to 2020.
- S. Wadsworth Boulevard from W. Jewell Avenue to W. 23rd Avenue: This stretch of Wadsworth, just south of Highway 6, caused 8 fatalities between 2018 and 2020. Like Colfax, Wadsworth hosts high volumes of vehicles, lots of businesses, and wide intersections with unprotected left turns.
- West Colfax Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard: Shocker. The two busiest roads come together and their intersection is a total cluster. Pedestrians are often hit at this intersection, and motorcycle riders also need to stay alert. With bus stops, businesses, and high volumes, this intersection demands caution.
