WHAT INSURANCE IS AVAILABLE IN CT?
In CT, the minimum insurance coverage a driver must purchase is $25,000/$50,000. This means that in a motorcycle accident where the rider is less than 50% responsible and the other driver has the minimum required coverage, the rider will have $25,000 to cover their injuries. If a passenger were on the motorcycle, each rider would have $25,000 available. In addition to the minimum coverage, drivers often wish to purchase underinsurance. Underinsurance can help cover the rider’s injuries if the at-fault driver does not have enough insurance. The skilled accident lawyers at Trantolo & Trantolo can explain what types of coverage are available and help you decide what is best for you.
ARE MOTORCYCLE CASES HARD TO PROVE IN HARTFORD?
Motorcycle accident claims can be challenging to prove. Insurance companies may try to argue that the other driver was not entirely at fault because he or she did not see the motorcycle. Additionally, insurance companies will try to downplay your pain and suffering. The accident lawyers at Trantolo & Trantolo know what tactics the insurance companies use and how to fight them. We have over 80 years of experience getting our Hartford clients the most compensation they deserve for their motorcycle accident claims.
In motorcycle accident cases, the cause of the accident is crucial. If a defective part caused the crash, different parties could be held responsible. For example, depending on which part was defective, you might be able to receive a settlement from the manufacturer of the motorcycle, the manufacturer of the part, or the garage that serviced your bike. Be sure to alert your Hartford accident attorney if you think your crash could have been caused by a defective part such as tires, lights, wiring, or fuel lines.
WHAT IF THE CRASH IS FATAL?
In the tragic cases where a motorcycle accident is fatal, the victim’s family may be entitled to wrongful death benefits. Surviving loved ones could get compensation for the victim’s lost wages, medical expenses, burial costs, pain and suffering, and more. For more information on what you might be entitled to if you lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, contact Trantolo & Trantolo. We understand how difficult these circumstances are and we are here to help you through.
WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER?
Experience is one of the essential qualities to look for when choosing a motorcycle accident lawyer. Motorcycle crash cases can be hard to prove and require more negotiating with the insurance company than standard car accident cases. So, your attorney must have experience dealing with motorcycle cases. For instance, your lawyer must quickly act because witnesses may forget what they saw, and evidence may be destroyed as time passes. Your lawyer must also be familiar with the deadlines for filing your case, such as the statute of limitations. In CT, motorcycle accident victims must file their injury claims within two (2) years of their crash.
