FREE CASE EVALUATION

Proving Causation in a New Britain Motorcycle Collision

Even if you are an extremely cautious biker who rides defensively and takes good care of your vehicle, you cannot predict every danger you may encounter on the road. Numerous other parties may decide to behave negligently and put you at risk.

At Trantolo & Trantolo, LLC, we want to protect New Britain bikers against reckless parties. You have been wronged and deserve a just outcome to your legal case.

Evidence to Search for in Your Motorcycle Crash Case

You can only get compensation from the liable party’s insurance company if you can identify that liable party and explain how their negligence led to your injuries. Our motorcycle accident attorneys can use many kinds of evidence to establish this information, including:

  • The police report, which includes all the information the responding officer collected and any conclusions they drew about your crash
  • Any photos or video footage that show the accident as it happened, events leading up to the accident, or consequences of the accident (e.g., your damaged bike)
  • Statements or materials from eyewitnesses who can talk about how the crash happened and how you or the other driver behaved afterward
  • A statement from an accident reconstruction specialist who is trained to analyze evidence and “reverse engineer” a collision to determine how it happened and who was at fault
  • Records about or in the possession of the liable party, such as past complaints or violations

Armed with this evidence, we can prove a case against:

Reckless New Britain Drivers

Driver carelessness is a very common cause of motorcycle crashes. People often forget to stay alert for motorcycles, so the appearance of a biker takes them by surprise. Drivers also often engage in risky behaviors, such as:

  • Distracted driving
  • Drowsy driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Speeding (or going too fast for the weather or road conditions)
  • Failing to signal before turning or changing lanes

Dangerous New Britain Roads

Whether you drive a car or ride a bike, you depend on the roads being in good condition. Your safety might be jeopardized if the local government or a company they hire to do maintenance work fails to:

  • Use the right materials when doing repair work
  • Promptly respond to a complaint about roadway safety
  • Fill in large cracks or potholes in the street
  • Fix or replace broken streetlights or signs
  • Clear debris, such as grass clippings, from the road
  • Put down ice melt when there is a chance of ice developing

Faulty Motorcycle or Car Parts

When manufacturers design, build, and assemble parts for a motor vehicle, it is part of their job to ensure they are safe for everyday use. Unfortunately, they sometimes ignore this responsibility, usually to protect their profits. A manufacturer might:

  • Keep quiet about a known defect so they do not have to issue a recall
  • Use cheaper materials that do not hold up as well to the pressure of regular use
  • Skip quality assurance checks that would have informed them about their product’s flaws
  • Fail to include proper warnings or instructions on the product’s packaging

How Dangerous Are Motorcycle Accidents in New Britain?

The Connecticut Crash Data Repository tracks the frequency and severity of traffic accidents in the state. This is what the data reveals about motorcycle accidents from June 2023 to June 2024:

  • Across all of Connecticut, there were 1,034 motorcycle crashes.
  • Thirteen of these crashes happened in New Britain.
  • Nine of the 13 New Britain motorcycle collisions resulted in at least one injury. That means 69 percent of all motorcycle crashes in the city were injury crashes.

Motorcycle Crashes Can Also Be Deadly

If your loved one has abruptly and unnecessarily lost their life because of a reckless party, we at Trantolo & Trantolo, LLC express our condolences for your loss. This accident should never have happened, and we want to help you:

  • Obtain the time and the compensation you need to process your loss and find a new normal
  • Pursue damages for funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and loss of financial support
  • Make sure the liable party does not get away with harming your family

What These Stats Mean for New Britain Bikers

Every responsible biker has the right to ride. If you followed the rules when someone else’s negligence caused your injury, Trantolo & Trantolo, LLC, can file a legal action to hold them accountable.

To keep yourself as safe as possible, you should be aware of the risks of riding, how to mitigate those risks, and how to protect your rights if someone else violates them. For instance:

  • The dangers of riding vary by season. In the fall, you might have to worry about wet leaves making the pavement slick. In summer, you may need to watch out for more bikers on the road.
  • Motorcycles are smaller than cars, so they are often harder to spot. Moreover, bikes offer minimal protection during a crash. Make yourself more visible by wearing bright clothing, and use protective gear (including a helmet and padded jacket) whenever you ride.
  • Be aware that not everyone is as conscientious as you are. Stay alert as you ride, and be prepared to react swiftly if anyone displays reckless or questionable behavior.

Our law firm is always available to offer free, no-obligation consultations to riders like you. It will cost you nothing more than a few minutes on the phone to better understand your rights and discover what our team of lawyers can do for you.
