As avid, competitive cyclists and Colorado personal injury lawyers with a penchant for representing everyday people injured in bicycle accidents in Colorado, Stuart Mann and Josh Maximon, of Mann & Maximon, are proud to support groups like “Bicycle Colorado”.
Bicycle Colorado is a “nonprofit advocacy organization championing the interests of all bicycle riders statewide”.
According to Bicycle Colorado:
“Last week, our latest Safety Stop effort was presented to the Transportation Legislation Review Committee, which meets between sessions to discuss ideas for transportation-focused bills and solutions. The Committee approved our bill draft by a vote of 12-4, a great first step ahead of the regular legislative session.
If passed, the bill would allow bicyclists and other small profile, non-motorized road users to treat stop signs as yield signs and red lights as stop signs when the coast is clear and they have the right of way. The Safety Stop has proven benefits for people biking. Recent data out of Delaware, which legalized the maneuver in 2017, showed a 23% drop in crashes between people biking and driving at intersections in the 30 months after adoption, compared to the 30 months prior.”
As passionate cyclists spending a lot of time on two-wheels in Colorado and as personal injury attorneys seeking to enrich the safety and livelihood of people in our communities, we wholly support the Safety Stop Bill.

What Our Clients
I was treated like a member of the family. They were always willing to answer my questions and help in any way they could. Best of all, they did a great job and we got a great settlement for my case.Mann & Maximon Client
During the long months that followed my bicycling accident and resulting injuries -- my bike and I were run over by an SUV driver -- Josh was my closest and most trusted advisor. I can say without hesitation, his legal guidance and representation were consistently everything a client hopes for. But just as importantly, he was an exceptionally kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable partner throughout all that transpired. Really, I cannot say enough about Josh Maximon and his team. Good humans make good attorneys, and Josh is both.Mann & Maximon Client
After my auto accident, I had to have my hip replaced. The insurance company said that my need for a hip replacement was not accident related. Stuart believed in me and my case and we were able to obtain the maximum amount available. His hard work helped change my life.Mann & Maximon Client
