What You Should do After a Motorcycle Accident

Understandably, the time following a motorcycle collision is confusing and difficult. Motorcycle accident victims often make mistakes which reduce the legal strength and financial value of their claims. Following a motorcycle accident, you should:

  • Call 911 and request the police and emergency services respond to the collision
  • Not speak with the driver of the vehicle which struck you
  • Seek medical care at a hospital, urgent care center, or with your primary care provider
  • Document the collision by photographing the scene and the vehicles involved
  • Not speak with the other driver’s insurance company
  • Retain a Milford motorcycle accident attorney

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Milford, CT

In most cases, a motorcycle accident is the result of an automobile driver’s negligence. Motorcycle accidents result from an automobile driver:

  • Driving after consuming drugs
  • Driving after consuming alcohol
  • Driving faster than the legal speed limit
  • Driving while talking or texting on their cell phone
  • Changing lanes improperly

Helmet Laws for Motorcycles in Connecticut

Connecticut State law requires motorcycle drivers below 18 to wear helmets. This law also applies to motorcycle passengers who are under 18. Adults are not required to wear helmets while driving or riding motorcycles.

How to Prove Negligence in Motorcycle Accident Cases 

Winning a motorcycle accident lawsuit requires you to prove the other driver caused the collision and the collision caused your injuries. You must prove both of these elements by a preponderance of the evidence, i.e., 51%. In addition to your testimony, evidence such as photos and testimony by independent eyewitnesses help you meet your burden of proof.

Damages You Can Recover in Motorcycle Accident Claims

You can obtain financial compensation by claiming economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages consist of your medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage. Non-economic damages are designed to compensate you for the mental anguish and pain and suffering you experienced.

Recovering Compensatory & Non-Compensatory Damages

In addition to being required to prove the other driver’s negligence, you must also prove you were injured due to the collision. Along with your medical expenses, Connecticut State law allows you to claim the costs related to your rehabilitative or custodial care as part of your economic damages claim. Further, you can also claim the mental anguish you experienced as part of your non-economic damages claim.

How Much Does a Motorcycle Injury Attorney in Milford Cost?

At Carter Mario, we represent injured victims on a contingency fee basis, which means you only pay if we can negotiate a settlement you approve or if we obtain a favorable verdict at trial. Additionally, according to our  Zero Fee Warranty, our legal fees will not exceed the amount of money you receive from a judgment or settlement. In short, you pay no upfront money for legal fees or costs.

Statute of Limitations on Milford Motorcycle Injury Claims 

A statute of limitations is a law setting a limit by which a person must file a lawsuit. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Connecticut is two years. This means you must file a lawsuit within two years following your motorcycle accident or else you waive your right to sue.
