Fairfield County Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Just because of the nature of the vehicle, motorcyclists are in a precarious situation on our roads and highways. Bikes move at exceptionally high speeds close to the pavement. When an accident occurs, there is a very real chance for serious injury. A cursory look into statistics shows the danger present — the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, for example, has estimated that a motorcyclist is approximately 16 times more likely to have a fatal accident than a car after collision with another vehicle.

The fact is, motorcycle accidents usually occur because of negligence. The courts usually view the less careful person in the accident as being responsible and liable for another person's injuries. The negligent driver must pay for some or all of the injuries and damages suffered by the more careful driver. Motorcycle accidents have their own specific issues to consider, including the following:

  • Traffic laws
  • Registration laws
  • Medical expenses
  • Who is at fault
  • Insurance or underinsurance issues

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycling accident, it is crucial to partner with a skilled and experienced lawyer who will do everything possible to obtain compensation and accountability so you can elevate your quality of life moving forward as you heal.
