Our Danbury Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Hold Negligent Drivers Responsible

When a motorcyclist suffers injuries in a collision, it is often because another driver acted carelessly or recklessly. Under Connecticut’s auto accident laws, crash victims can hold the at-fault driver legally responsible for their injuries, costs, and losses. This is generally possible through negotiations or litigation.

Our motorcycle accident attorneys in Danbury, CT, understand how to build these cases, support them with evidence, and hold the at-fault driver accountable. This allows us to seek fair compensation for our clients based on their current and future costs and losses.

To recover money for an injured motorcyclist or motorcycle passenger, we must show:

  • The other driver owed our client a duty of care
  • They breached that duty of care
  • This caused the crash
  • Our client suffered harm, whether physical, emotional, or financial

Our experienced personal injury lawyers know how to manage these investigations, uncovering crucial evidence to show what happened and document recoverable damages. This allows our clients to focus on their treatment, therapies, and healing while we prepare their case for a settlement or jury trial.

Our Attorneys Understand the  Causes of Danbury, CT, Motorcycle Accidents

When our Danbury motorcycle collision injury lawyers manage a case for an injured client, we gather as much information as possible about the circumstances that caused the crash. This usually occurs during our initial case review.

We listen to our client’s side of the story, giving us an idea of the evidence available to show what occurred and how the at-fault driver caused the crash. We know that, typically, motorists cause motorcycle accidents in one of the following ways:

  • Failure to Yield: Drivers often fail to yield the right-of-way to motorcyclists when turning, pulling out, or merging.
  • Unsafe Lane Change: Drivers change lanes without checking blind spots, clearing the adjacent lane, or signaling. This causes collisions when they run into a motorcyclist in an adjacent lane.
  • Following Too Closely: Tailgating or following motorcycles too closely increases the risk of rear-end collisions. Like other vehicles, motorcyclists may need to slow down or stop suddenly.
  • Opening Doors Into Traffic: Motorists in parallel parked vehicles may open their doors into traffic lanes without checking for motorcycles, causing dooring accidents and serious injuries.
  • Ignoring Traffic Signals and Signs: Disregarding traffic signals, stop signs, or other traffic control devices is a common cause of collisions, especially for smaller vehicles such as motorcycles.

While not a direct cause of a collision, there are also many contributing factors in these accidents. If we have evidence that any of these factors were in play, it could help us develop a stronger case against the negligent driver. These factors include:

  • Distracted Driving: Texting, talking on the phone, eating, minding children, or adjusting radio controls divert a driver’s attention from the road. This is a common factor in many auto accidents today.
  • Speeding: Exceeding the speed limit reduces a driver’s ability to react to sudden changes in traffic conditions or unexpected maneuvers by other drivers. Drivers in heavy traffic or bad weather can also speed by driving too fast for the current conditions.
  • Driving Under the Influence: Operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a factor in many accidents. Drunk driving impairs judgment, coordination, and reaction time.
  • Inexperienced Driving: Inexperienced drivers may fail to anticipate the movements of motorcyclists or misjudge their speed and distance.

Let Our Danbury Motorcycle Crash Injury Lawyers Fight for Fair Compensation for You

Motorcycle accident victims often suffer serious injuries when hit by a car in Danbury. With significant injuries come medical bills for a wide range of current and future related care. They might also miss work or never be able to return to their previous job. It is crucial to recover the money necessary to pay for their past, present, and future care.

This is where our experienced team of motorcycle accident lawyers can help. We understand how to identify and document recoverable damages and fight for the money to fairly compensate our client for their expenses and losses. Some of the recoverable damages we commonly seek in these cases include:

Medical Bills

From ambulance transportation from the crash scene to rehabilitation to ongoing care and monitoring, we seek compensation for our client’s current and future medical needs. We work with experts to help us understand the costs and fight to ensure they can afford the care they require.

Income Losses

Whether a crash victim misses a few days at their job or cannot return to the workforce after a catastrophic accident and permanent injuries, we pursue the money they missed from their wages and other income. We also secure diminished earning capacity for clients with long-term disabilities.

Other Expenses

We encourage our clients to keep all receipts related to their accident, treatment, and care. We may also seek and recover compensation for other expenses.

Injuries, Pain, and Suffering

Our attorneys know how to assign a value to non-economic losses such as injuries, pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and other intangible damages.

Wrongful Death Damages

If your loved one died in a Danbury motorcycle accident, Conn. Gen. Stat. Sec. 52-555 allows their estate executor to pursue compensation for surviving family members. Contact our Connecticut wrongful death team today to learn more.
