Cyclist Injured by Barb Wire in South Platte Park – Boulder Personal Injury Lawyer

Police are warning bicyclists to use caution when riding in South Platte Park. An unknown suspect apparently tied barbed wire across Mary Carter Greenway Trail in the park, injuring a cyclist on Sunday evening. The wire was hung approximately 1-foot off the ground, which caused the victim to be thrown from his bike. South Suburban Parks and Recreation officers and Littleton Police investigated the scene of the incident, but do not have any suspects in the case. If caught, the suspect faces charges of recklessness endangerment and assault. The cyclist suffered only minor injuries in the incident.

It is often the case that personal injury cases arise out of the intentional acts of others. The victim in this case was thrown from his bike, sustaining physical injuries, emotional trauma and damage to his bicycle, and the wrongdoer should be held liable for those injuries. Victims of any type of personal injury, whether caused by intentional, reckless, or merely negligent conduct, should consult with an experienced Boulder personal injury lawyer who will assist them in gaining justice and proper compensation for their physical pain, emotional suffering and financial losses.
