Now that the calendar is rolling over toward autumn, many motorcyclists in Connecticut will be trying to get in one last ride before they start to put their motorcycles up for the winter. Unfortunately, that means that, for the foreseeable future, until the weather really begins to turn, we will all likely see more news reports about motorcycle accidents on the roads of the Nutmeg State.
All of our readers are likely used to seeing news reports about car accidents – they happen every day. However, the unfortunate reality of accidents involving motorcycles is that the results can be far more serious. After all, motorcyclists, unlike other motorists in cars, do not have the same protection in the event of a collision. And no matter how experienced the motorcyclists are, they are often at the mercy of other drivers who are distracted by cellphones and other electronic devices.
When Connecticut residents are injured in a motorcycle accident, they need to know that they may have legal options. A motorcycle accident will almost assuredly leave the motorcyclist with serious injuries, perhaps requiring weeks or even months of hospitalization, ongoing treatment and rehabilitation. Pursuing compensation from a negligent party might help offset the costs associated with this treatment.
At our law firm, we understand the issues that motorcyclists will likely face when they are seeking compensation from another party who caused a collision. We do our best to make sure that our clients understand their options before they make important decisions.
