New Haven Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Motorcycles are an economical and enjoyable mode of transportation for many in Connecticut. But as enjoyable and economical as they may be, motorcycles have a huge downside. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcycles are 15 times more likely to be involved in an accident than other motor vehicles. Furthermore, motorcyclists are almost 30 times more likely than the occupants of a passenger vehicle to die in a New Haven motor vehicle accident, and 5 times more likely to be injured. If you or a loved one was injured in a motorcycle accident in New Haven, hiring a professional personal injury attorney is the best course of action.

The Connecticut motorcycle accident attorneys at Lynch, Traub, Keefe & Errante may be able to get you compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and other accident-related expenses. We’re happy to provide a free consultation and case evaluation.

Common Causes of a Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycle accidents occur for many reasons. In some cases, poor weather, such as wind, sleet, and snow can contribute to a crash. In other cases, dangerous road conditions, such as potholes, loose gravel, or slick spots on the pavement can cause a motorcyclist to lose control of their bike. Also, wholly unforeseeable events, like an animal crossing the road, can be the primary cause of a motorcycle accident.

But, by far, the leading cause of New Haven motorcycle accidents is driver negligence or recklessness. This can be negligence on the part of the motorcyclist or another driver on the road.

Some common examples of driver negligence include:

  • Distracted driving;
  • Driving while intoxicated;
  • Speeding;
  • Failing to yield the right of way; and
  • Other traffic violations.

Common New Haven Motorcycle Accident Injuries

A motorcycle accident can result in many different types of injuries, the most common being:

  • Road rash;
  • Broken or fractured bones;
  • Head, neck, and back injuries;
  • Spinal cord injuries;
  • Internal Injuries;
  • Amputations;
  • Paralysis; and
  • Death

All motorcycle accident injuries require immediate medical attention, and many require surgery and ongoing treatment. The cost of this medical care can add up fast and become an insurmountable burden for you and your family. Our New Haven catastrophic injury attorneys work diligently to ensure you receive the compensation you need to cover your medical expenses.

Compensation for Crash Injuries in Connecticut

By law, a motorcyclist has the same rights as any other driver on the road. Despite this, motorcycle accident victims have a much more difficult time recovering the compensation they are entitled to receive. This is because motorcyclists are depicted by insurance companies as risky and reckless drivers.

The truth, however, is that motorcyclists are less likely to be at fault for an accident than other drivers. Furthermore, whenever you are injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or wrongdoing, you are entitled to pursue a claim against the at-fault party to recover compensation for your injuries and losses.

What an insurance company has to say is not the last word. An experienced New Haven motorcycle accident lawyer will have access to expert witnesses, such as accident reconstructionists, who can determine who is at fault for the accident and support your claim for compensation.
