Every client’s case is handled by a partner-attorney throughout the process. Personal. Professional. Best practices. We carefully review developments in the law on a continual basis, to put your best case forward.
Motorcycle accidents involve different dynamics from other types of motor vehicle accidents. Motorcycles react differently in a crash, and the unprotected riders are vulnerable to more serious injuries. Because of this vulnerability, motorcycle accidents are more likely to result in wrongful death or leave victims incapacitated with a severe brain or spinal cord injury. Even motorcyclists obeying traffic laws and wearing protective gear are at a huge disadvantage in a collision with a motor vehicle. Injuries often include brain damage, paralysis, back injury, and amputation of limbs, as well as fractures, severe burns, or “road rash.” If you are on a motorcycle and are hit by a car, you are three times more likely to be seriously injured, and fourteen times more likely to be killed, than a person injured in an accident involving two cars. When these major injuries occur, we consult with medical experts to determine the future medical needs such as reconstructive surgery, vocational rehabilitation, medical equipment and medications. As Connecticut motorcycle accident attorneys with experience, we can better understand your claim and we know how to value your unique damages. Whether your accident was caused by the negligence of another driver, dangerous roadways, or a defective motorcycle part you have the right to legal advice and representation.
Victims can recover lost wages and future earnings, medical bills and projected health care costs, as well as damages for pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.
