Motorcycle Accident Cases in Connecticut

Foremost, please know that we ride too. Riding a motorcycle in Connecticut is fun. There are plenty of routes to enjoy the wind in your hair (unless your haircut is like Paul McConnell’s :)). While you plan to have a good time on the road, you never know what can happen. The most careful drivers can still get into an accident, given specific circumstances.

If you get into a motorcycle accident, you should first address your health. Thereafter, you need to gather evidence in order to make an effective claim. The next step, that should only be done with the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney, is to communicate with insurance companies and work on complicated paperwork that proves who the at-fault driver is.

If you need an experienced Connecticut motorcycle accident attorney by your side, contact The Doctor Lawyer Team today.

At-Fault in Motorcycle Accidents

There is a misconception that motorcycle riders are aggressive and reckless when out on the open road. The truth is, they are skilled drivers who have to understand the proper rules because they are vulnerable. The problem is that they cannot always predict what other drivers will do on the road.

The Doctor Lawyer Team provides legal assistance to motorcycle riders who are involved in accidents. We work hard to do what is necessary, including collecting evidence and building your case to show the factors that led to the accident and who was at fault.

If you need to consult a Connecticut motorcycle accident attorney, contact The Doctor Lawyer Team to set up an appointment.

Common Injuries From Motorcycle Accidents

Riding a motorcycle can expose drivers to very serious injuries. Unlike cars, motorcycles don't offer their riders much protection from high-impact collisions. The most common motorcycle accident injuries are:

  • Skin abrasion and cuts
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Friction burns
  • Concussions & head trauma
  • Fractured skull
  • Facial fractures
  • Internal bleeding
  • Limb injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal injury
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Other catastrophic injuries

Most Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents have been revealed by formal research. The recurring factor is cars making a quick turn without the driver looking to see if they will be hitting someone else.

For example, a car can make an unprotected left turn at an intersection where a motorcycle is going straight through. Another situation is when a motorcycle is trying to pass a vehicle, and the vehicle suddenly turns left.

Other common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Speeding and not following traffic rules
  • Driving while influenced by alcohol or prohibited drugs
  • Distracted driving
  • Lane-splitting
  • Poorly maintained roads
  • Colliding with fixed objects

Determining Compensation for Motorcycle-Related Injuries

A motorcycle accident can cause traumatic and severe injuries to the body. Unlike cars and trucks, a motorcycle leaves a rider completely exposed. They do not have seatbelts, air bags, roll cages, and other safety features of a car. The severity of your injuries plays a role in determining the compensation you can claim after the accident. Other factors include:

  • All medical bills related to the accident
  • How long it will take you to recover
  • Any recurring pain you suffered
  • Property damage to your bike
  • Missed work or income due to the accident

To get a better idea of what to do after the motorcycle accident, contact The Doctor Lawyer Team. We have years of experience in the field and can help you through the process of claiming the incident. Book your free consultation today.

Is There a Helmet Law in Connecticut?

Wearing a helmet can help prevent further injuries to the brain. However, it is up to you to determine whether you will wear one. Connecticut only requires minors to wear helmets when riding motorcycles. Adults can drive a motorcycle legally without wearing protective headgear.

While you can legally ride without a helmet, doing so can negatively impact your claim. Injuries sustained because you were not wearing a helmet can be relevant to the case.

To minimize these risks, wear a helmet when riding your motorcycle.

Hiring a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Navigating the law can be difficult. There are several things to consider based on the facts of your case. It means researching every aspect of the law that can be used in the case to make a claim. Even after all that, you cannot be sure if you did things right.

Nothing can beat experience, and The Doctor Lawyer Team has plenty of that in handling motorcycle accident cases in Connecticut. We can help you by organizing and submitting the required documents to manage your claim.

Talk to our Connecticut motorcycle accident attorney to get started. From there, we can strategize on how to proceed with your case.
