Fighting for Victims of Motorcycle Accidents & Injuries

Motorcycle accident lawsuits are often legally and factually complex cases to litigate.

The attorneys at Carter Mario Law Firm are not easily intimidated and routinely litigate complex matters on behalf of their clients.

What Should Happen Following a Motorcycle Accident 

The time following a motorcycle accident is when you need to begin building your case. There are many things you can do which can make your claim stronger. Specifically, you should:

  • Contact 911
  • Not talk to the other driver
  • Report the collision to the police
  • Identify individuals who may have witnessed the crash
  • Go to a hospital or urgent care center for medical treatment
  • Take pictures of the other driver’s vehicle, your motorcycle, and your injuries
  • Not talk to the other driver’s insurance company
  • Consult a Bridgeport motorcycle accident lawyer

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Bridgeport, CT

The root cause of most motorcycle accidents is negligence. Specifically, motorcycle accidents are often caused by:

  • Motorists driving faster than the posted speed limit
  • Drivers who fail to observe their surroundings
  • Drivers who use their cellular phones while driving
  • Drivers who follow motorcycles too closely
  • Drivers who drive after consuming alcohol or drugs

Motorcycle Helmet Laws in Connecticut

Many states require motorcycle riders to wear helmets. Connecticut is not one of these jurisdictions. Instead, Connecticut State law only requires motorcycle riders and passengers under 18 to wear helmets.

Proving Negligence in Bridgeport Motorcycle Accident Cases

In general, you must prove two issues by a preponderance of the evidence, i.e., 51%, to win a motorcycle accident lawsuit. Specifically, you must prove (1) the other person’s negligent act caused the collision and (2) the collision caused your injuries. Depending on the facts of your case, meeting this burden may be difficult which is why it is important to gather evidence immediately following a collision.

Potential Damages You Can Recover in Motorcycle Injury Claims 

You can obtain financial compensation by claiming compensatory and non-compensatory damages. Compensatory damages consist of your economic losses such as your medical expenses and lost wages. Non-compensatory damages cover your pain and suffering.

Compensatory vs Non-Compensatory Damages

According to Connecticut State law, compensatory damages are based on your pecuniary, i.e., financial losses. Accordingly, you can seek financial compensation for the cost of your rehabilitative care along with your medical expenses. A claim for non-compensatory damages includes the mental trauma you suffered, along with the physical pain you experienced as a result of the collision.

Statute of Limitations on Motorcycle Accident Claims in Bridgeport

Connecticut, like each State, imposes a statute of limitations on personal injury claims. This means a personal injury victim has a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit after an accident or else they are forever precluded from pursuing the case. The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Connecticut is two years.
