Helping Victims of Motorcycle Collisions & Accidents

Many personal injury attorneys decline to represent motorcycle accident victims. This is because they do not want to litigate difficult cases involving victims who suffered serious injuries. The attorneys at Carter Mario Law Firm are not afraid to represent injured motorcycle accident victims in lawsuits against powerful insurance companies.

Motorcycle Accident Settlements Obtained By Carter Mario

Motorcycle collisions often cause victims to suffer terrible life-altering injuries. Accordingly, insurance companies often face high financial exposure due to motorcycle accident claims. The attorneys at Carter Mario Law Firm have skillfully leveraged this exposure and obtained favorable settlements, including:

  • $2,400,000 following a collision in which an SUV struck a motorcycle rider
  • $1,250,000 following a head-on collision in which a negligent driver struck a motorcycle rider
  • $621,000 for a motorcycle rider who was injured by a negligent driver who executed an illegal left turn

What You Should Do After a Motorcycle Accident

A motorcycle collision is a terrifying and confusing event. The time following the crash is crucial. There are many steps you can take to increase the strength of your case, including:

  • Call the police
  • Avoid speaking with the other driver
  • Seek medical treatment at a hospital or urgent care center
  • Identify possible witnesses and obtain their contact information
  • Take pictures of the vehicles and the location of the collision
  • Do not give any statements to the other driver’s insurance company
  • Talk to a Stamford motorcycle accident attorney

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Stamford

Personal injuries involving motorcycles are usually the result of an automobile driver’s negligence. Specifically, motorcycle accidents are commonly caused by drivers who:

  • Fail to pay full time and attention to the road
  • Drive while talking or texting on their cellular phones
  • Drive over the speed limit
  • Fail to check their blind spots before changing lanes
  • Tailgate motorcycles
  • Drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol

Connecticut’s Helmet Laws

Motorcycle operators who are adults are not legally required to wear helmets. Instead, Connecticut State law requires motorcycle drivers below the age of 18 to wear helmets. Additionally, minor passengers must wear helmets when riding a motorcycle.

Proving Negligence in a Motorcycle Accident Claim

To win a motorcycle accident lawsuit, you must prove the other driver caused the collision. Specifically, you must prove your case by a preponderance of the evidence, i.e., 51%. You have a better chance of meeting this burden of proof and winning your motorcycle accident lawsuit if you obtain evidence such as independent witness testimony. 

Damages You May Be Able to Recover in Motorcycle Injury Claims

Under Connecticut State law, you can obtain financial compensation by claiming economic and non-economic damages if you were involved in a motorcycle accident. Economic damages include your medical expenses and lost wages. Non-economic damages include the pain and suffering you experienced due to your injuries from your motorcycle accident.

Other Economic And Non-Economic Damages Claims

Under Connecticut State law, you can seek monetary compensation for the cost of reasonable rehabilitative care when making an economic damages claim. You can also seek monetary compensation if you cannot return to work at a full-duty capacity. Finally, you can seek financial compensation for the mental and emotional suffering you experienced when asserting a non-economic damages claim.

Statute of Limitations for Motorcycle Accident Claims

Pursuant to 52-584, Connecticut State law imposes a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury claims. This means you must file a lawsuit within two years of the day your motorcycle accident occurred. As Connecticut’s statute of limitations is strictly enforced, you should contact the attorneys at Carter Mario Law Firm as soon as possible after your motorcycle accident.
