With the warmer weather ahead of us, our bikers are out on the roads here in Connecticut enjoying the nicer weather and pleasures of riding. “When motorcycles and other vehicles collide, it is usually the other non-motorcycle driver who violates the motorcyclists right of way” according to a statement from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
According to the NHTSA, per mile driven, motorcycles have a fatality rate 28 times higher than passenger vehicles. For motorcycles, 78.3% of reported crashes result in injury and 4.24% of crashes are fatal.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle collision:
1.) Get out of harm’s way to prevent further injury.
2.) Contact the police.
3.) Seek medical care immediately.
4.) Contact our motorcycle injury attorney 24/7 line at 860-691-1184.
The last thing you want to do is try to navigate Connecticut Motorcycle Law on your own. Our firm will handle all communications with the insurance company, collect all evidence necessary for your case and litigate for your rights if necessary. We often see motorcyclists taking the blame when it comes to these accidents but in all reality it was the non-motorcyclist driver that caused the collision by their failure to drive properly, yield the right of way, pay attention to where they were going, keep a proper lookout for bikers, text messaging and so on.
All consultations are free and there are no fees to you unless we are successful in recovery. 860-691-1184.
