Q: What if I was run off the road?

A. It is not necessary for you to have been hit by a car or truck or S.U.V. If the driver of a vehicle negligently ran you off the road they are liable. You have a legal right to ride on the roadways of Colorado unless there is a sign which indicates otherwise. There are many potential situations where a cyclist is either run off the road or has to evade being hit and as a result crashes. However, in order to pursue a claim against the driver who forced you off the road they have to be identified. If the driver is not identified you may be able to recover under your own auto insurance policy.
