What Does a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Do?

After suffering the potentially life-changing injuries a motorcycle accident can cause, the last thing anyone wants is to deal with insurance companies. Insurance companies do not always offer fair compensation or pay as quickly as you need. Their goal is to make money — not to spend it paying claims. They do not have your best interests in mind.

Who is Required to Wear a Helmet While Riding a Motorcycle?

What Are the Most Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents?

The most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Inattentive Riders
  • Impairment/Distraction
  • High Speeds
  • Poor Conditions
  • Poor Visibility
  • Inclement Weather

When Should I File a Motorcycle Accident Claim?

Just like any other personal injury case in Connecticut, motorcycle accident claims have a specific timeframe in which they must be pursued. It is crucial to be aware that these claims must be brought within 2 years as stated in Connecticut General Statutes § 52-584.

What To Do After a Minor Motorcycle Accident?

Once you have seen a doctor, there are other steps you can take to help strengthen your injury claim after a motorcycle accident.

These include:

  • Notifying Your Insurance Company: You should report your motorcycle accident and any injuries sustained to your own insurance company. However, do not speak to or sign anything from the other driver’s insurance company.
  • Detailing the Accident: Take notes about how the accident occurred. Include specific details — including what lane you were in, the weather conditions, the time of day, the traffic flow, and other specifics you remember.
  • Photographing Injuries and Property Damage: Before seeking any repairs, photograph any damage your motorcycle sustained in the crash. If no doctor photographed your injuries, make sure to photograph them yourself.
  • Tracking Your Treatment and Recovery: Write down any medications you’re prescribed — including dosage. List all doctors you see as well as any additional treatment or rehabilitation you require during your healing.
  • Consulting a Lawyer: Filing a motorcycle accident claim can be a complicated legal process. That’s why it’s a good idea to retain a lawyer who fully understands all applicable laws and can make sure you’re protected.

What Does My Injury Claim Cover?

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
