Motorcycle Accident Attorney Serving Waterbury
Involved in a Motorcycle Accident in Waterbury?
Motorcycles are a very economical and smart way to get around. They are a great form of transportation when being used for either a daily commute or for a quick getaway. On the plus side, a motorcycle gets you closer to nature and is fun to ride. On the negative side, riding a motorcycle gives you very little protection in the event of an accident. Additionally, motorcyclists tend to be less visible on the roads and thus are more susceptible to being involved in an accident.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident, contact a skilled Waterbury personal injury attorney at my firm immediately. I will work with you to evaluate the circumstances of the accident, advise you of your rights and help you file a claim against the negligent driver involved.
Filing a Claim after a Motorcycle Accident
As there is very little protection afforded to a motorcyclist, injuries can be quite significant. Injuries can range from road rash and fractures all the way to permanent brain damage and even injuries so severe that there is no hope of recovery. Unfortunately, regardless of who was at fault, unlike car accidents or
truck accidents, responsibility for motorcycle accidents tend to land heavily on the shoulders of the motorcyclist.
Even though all drivers are expected to follow the rules of the road, due to their reputation as "reckless drivers" motorcyclists are often wrongly blamed in accidents. As a result, insurance companies will sometimes attempt to pressure motorcyclists to settle for lower claim amounts than they should expect. Before you even contact your insurance company, you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney to help you compile your case, file an accurate claim and get you the compensation you deserve. With over two decades of experience successfully representing motorcyclists and other personal injury clients and as a member of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, I know what it takes to represent you. I will give your case the full attention and focus it deserves.
