Determining Fault In Motorcycle Accidents

Connecticut is among U.S. states following comparative negligence regulations when determining fault in a motorcycle accident. This implies that all parties involved in the motorcycle accident can be found responsible. Here, you can only seek compensation for your physical injuries and losses if your responsibility for the motorcycle accident is 50% or less.

The four primary principles for proving the other party’s negligence in the Connecticut motorbike collision are:

  • The defendant (party at fault) owed the plaintiff (you) a duty of care.
  • The party at fault breached their duty of care to you.
  • The defendant’s non-observance of duty of care caused your injuries.
  • The plaintiff has damages or losses from the accident.

Our Connecticut motorcycle accident lawyers will gather evidence and call witnesses, as well as accident experts, to testify to help you prove the other party’s negligence in your motorcycle crash.

In Connecticut, motorcycle accident victims are eligible to receive three types of damages as part of their compensation. They are:

  • Economic damages: Cover calculable losses like lost wages and medical bills.
  • Non-economic damages: Cover difficult-to-calculate losses like pain and suffering and loss of life enjoyment.
  • Punitive damages: Meant to punish the at-fault party if their actions or inactions portrayed extreme carelessness, malice, and gross disregard for human life.

Recovering Compensation For Motorcycle Accidents And Personal Injury

A motorcycle accident can leave you with lifelong injuries and a substantial financial burden. If you have been involved in a motorbike crash, consider hiring an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer near Connecticut to help you with the claims process.

Economic Damages

This refers to any type of damage where you are going to seek monetary compensation for post-accident out-of-pocket expenses. These can include treatment fees, rehab costs, prescription drug costs, and even lost wages. If you believe the injury has directly led to these expenses, feel free to cite it in the legal claim. You can end up receiving access to funds through compensation by listing these economic damages.

Non-Economic Damages

This refers to any type of damage where you are not going to be paying out-of-pocket but it still has an impact on your quality of life. These can include injuries, damage to your car, stress, anxiety, depression, and any other impact that has changed how you live your life. If you believe the injury has changed how you live and/or your mental health, list these under non-economic damages.

Punitive Damages

The last type of damage refers to punitive damages. These damages are built around the legal standards set in Connecticut for personal injury cases. If the judge believes the defendant was negligent and broke the law, then additional punishment can be handed out.

This can include fines and/or prison sentences depending on what took place and what the evidence shows.

The very characteristics that make riding a motorcycle in Connecticut exhilarating are the same that can lead to life-long injuries. Narrow roads in rural Connecticut towns, long stretches of congested Hartford and New Haven highways, and weather conditions that change hour by hour are some of the conditions that motorcycle operators face. These can also lead to serious injuries even in low-speed accidents for those driving without the benefit of seatbelts, airbags, and cabs.

A motorcycle accident at any speed on a poorly maintained Connecticut road can cause serious personal injuries, including broken bones and head trauma. Oftentimes, the mechanism of injury is unlike that for any other type of motor vehicle crash. Unfortunately, not every motorcycle operator injured in an accident because of the negligence of another is compensated. This is sometimes because the general public, insurance companies, and investigators don’t always understand the rules by which motorcycles operate. This makes it vitally important for your attorney to know the regulations that govern the way motorists treat motorcycles. Your attorney must also understand the “unwritten rules” of operating a motorcycle in Connecticut.

We have represented motorcycle operators involved in serious accidents who were riding alone, in groups, or as a part of charity rides. Each requires special consideration of riding style and guidelines. In any accident, our goal is to get you healthy, proper compensation, and back on the road.

What Should I Do If I Was Injured In A Motorcycle Accident?

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident in Connecticut, there are a couple of things you can do to make the investigation proceed more smoothly.

  • Do not throw away any of the damaged parts of your bike. Keeping every damaged part will provide key evidence your attorney and expert may be able to use to better determine how your accident occurred.
  • Make sure to keep your tires, even if flat. Photograph the tire marks on the pavement and marks on the tires themselves; these are crucial to determining key information such as speed, braking, and direction.
  • Compile and keep maintenance records. This includes records for after-market parts.

As with any accident, it is a good idea to consult with an attorney before speaking with an insurance company.
