Fighting for Victims of Motorcycle Accidents & Collisions

Some personal injury attorneys are unwilling to fight powerful insurance companies and instead advise their clients to accept minimal settlement offers. Our legal team is

not afraid to litigate complex cases. The motorcycle accident attorneys at Carter Mario Law Firm have obtained over one billion dollars on behalf of their injured clients.

Results Obtained In Motorcycle Accident Cases

The motorcycle accident attorneys at Carter Mario Law Firm know how to prepare strong cases for their injured clients. As a result, insurance carriers have strong incentives to settle. Our attorneys have obtained favorable settlements such as:

  • $621,000 for a motorcycle accident victim who was struck by a vehicle driven by a negligent driver making an illegal left turn
  • $1,250,000 for a motorcycle accident victim involved in a head-on collision
  • $2,400,000 for a motorcycle accident victim who was injured due to an SUV driven by a negligent driver

What to Do Following a Motorcycle Collision

Insurance companies search for legal or factual arguments to minimize or deny claims. As such, the time following a motorcycle collision is crucial. To strengthen your claim, you should:

  • Contact 911 and report the crash to the police
  • Not speak with the other driver
  • Go to the hospital or urgent care center for medical treatment
  • Obtain the contact information of possible witnesses
  • Document the collision by taking pictures of the vehicles
  • Not speak with the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier
  • Consult a Norwalk motorcycle accident lawyer

Most Frequent Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

The root cause of motorcycle collisions can be traced to human negligence. Motorcycle accidents are often the result of automobile drivers who negligently:

  • Drive above the posted speed limit
  • Text or talk on their cellular phones while driving
  • Follow motorcycles too closely
  • Consume alcohol or drugs before driving
  • Drive in an improper or reckless manner

Helmet Laws In Connecticut

Connecticut State law requires motorcycle drivers who are under 18 to wear helmets. This law also requires motorcycle passengers who are under 18 to wear helmets. Adults are not required to wear helmets.

Evidence of Negligence in Motorcycle Accident Claims

Connecticut State Law requires a motorcycle accident victim to prove the other driver’s negligence by a preponderance of the evidence, i.e., 51%. Depending on the facts of your accident, additional evidence, such as independent witness testimony or testimony by an accident reconstruction expert witness, may be necessary to meet this burden. Additionally, evidence which proves the other driver’s negligence may also help you overcome a comparative negligence defense which could potentially bar your claim if you are found to be more than 50% at fault.

Possible Damages to Seek in Motorcycle Injury Claims

Damages is another term to describe the money you can recover for the losses you suffered from a motorcycle accident. You can claim economic damages for the cost of your medical treatment and your lost wages. A claim for non-economic damages allows you to seek financial compensation for the physical pain and mental suffering you experienced due to your injuries.

Economic & Non-Economic Damages In Connecticut

Under Connecticut State law, a jury or a judge decides claims for economic and non-economic damages. Along with medical expenses, you can obtain financial compensation for the cost of rehabilitative care when asserting a claim for economic damages. Additionally, you can receive monetary compensation for the mental trauma you suffered as part of your non-economic damages claim.

Statute of Limitations for Motorcycle Collisions

A statute of limitations is a law which limits the amount of time a personal injury victim has to file a lawsuit against the person who caused their injuries. Under 52-584, the statute of limitations on motorcycle accident claims in the State of Connecticut is two years. This means you must file a lawsuit within two years following your motorcycle collision, or else you waive your right to sue the negligent driver.
