Fighting for Victims of Motorcycle Accidents

Insurance companies hire powerful lawyers to defend motorcycle accident lawsuits. Insurance defense lawyers raise every possible argument to intimidate injured victims and their lawyers. The experienced motorcycle accident lawyers at the Carter Mario Law Firm are not easily intimidated and are driven by their desire to obtain justice on behalf of their clients.

What to do After Suffering a Motorcycle Injury

Building a strong case requires evidence of the other driver’s negligence and your injuries. The time immediately following a collision is when you can begin building your case. As such, following your motorcycle accident, you should:

  • Call 911 and report the collision
  • Obtain the other driver’s information, but do not discuss the collision
  • Go to a hospital or urgent care center for medical treatment
  • Obtain contact information for individuals who may have witnessed the collision
  • Take pictures of the other driver’s vehicle
  • Take photos of the location of the accident
  • Do not talk to any insurance companies
  • Contact a Waterbury motorcycle accident lawyer

Most Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are often caused by an automobile driver that committed an act of negligence. Specifically, automobile drivers negligently:

  • Fail to yield the right of way
  • Drive faster than the posted speed limit
  • Engage in aggressive or reckless driving
  • Talk or text on their cell phones
  • Change lanes without observing their surroundings

Connecticut Motorcycle Helmet Laws

The State of Connecticut does not require motorcycle operators to wear helmets while driving. However, according to Connecticut State law, if the driver or passenger is not yet 18, they must wear a helmet. Minor drivers or passengers who violate this statute will have to pay a minimum fine of $90.

How a Waterbury Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Helps Prove Negligence 

To win your motorcycle accident lawsuit, you must prove the other driver caused the collision by a preponderance of the evidence, i.e., 51%. A Waterbury motorcycle accident lawyer prepares your testimony and gathers relevant evidence such as testimony by independent witnesses. Finally, a motorcycle collision attorney presents your case and persuades a fact finder that the evidence proves the other driver’s negligence.

Potential Damages from Motorcycle Accident Claims

Injured victims may obtain financial compensation based on their “damages.” You can claim two types of damages: economic and non-economic. Economic damages include your lost wages and medical expenses while non-economic damages include the pain and suffering you experienced.

Obtaining Compensatory & Non-Compensatory Damages

Similar to proving negligence, you must prove your motorcycle accident caused your injuries. Under Connecticut State law, you can claim the cost of rehabilitative care along with your medical expenses as part of your economic damages. You can also claim the mental and emotional suffering you endured as part of your non-economic damages.

Waterbury Motorcycle Claim Statute of Limitations

You must file a lawsuit within two years after your motorcycle accident. This is because the statute of limitations for civil claims in Connecticut is two years. Stated more clearly, if you fail to sue the other driver within two years, you waive your right to sue.
