Our Motorcycle Collision Attorneys File Personal Injury Claims Based on Your New Haven Crash
All drivers in Connecticut are required to carry a minimum of $25,000/$50,000 in auto liability insurance coverage. As such, if a motorcycle rider is involved in an accident and the at-fault driver has insurance, the rider could file an insurance claim through the liable party’s carrier.
Connecticut car insurance law also requires drivers to buy uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) coverage. Underinsured coverage helps compensate the victim if they suffer severe and costly injuries.
There may also be other ways to recover compensation in your case, including suing the at-fault driver and taking the case to trial. Our motorcycle accident attorneys manage this process for our clients and fight for fair compensation.

Let Our Personal Injury Lawyers Prove Your New Haven Motorcycle Accident Case
Motorcycle accident claims are unique and can be difficult to prove. The liable party’s insurance company may argue that the other driver is only partially at fault and that you, the victim, share some blame for the crash.
In addition, insurance companies often attempt to minimize your pain and suffering to lower your settlement. When you have a lawyer on your side, they can defend you against these bad-faith tactics.
Trantolo & Trantolo, LLC. has helped our New Haven clients recover appropriate settlements when they suffer motorcycle crash injuries. We know what it takes to get the fair compensation you need. We investigate every crash case we handle, with our motorcycle accident attorneys identifying and analyzing evidence, including:
- The police report
- Surveillance footage of the collision, when available
- Photos from the accident scene
- Eyewitness statements
- Accident scene reconstruction
- Your medical records related to the accident
- Expert witness testimony
- Paperwork to document damages, such as bills and receipts
Our motorcycle crash lawyers in New Haven use this evidence to develop a claim and pursue compensation from the at-fault driver or another liable party. We are often able to convince the insurance carrier they do not want to face a lawsuit or take the case to trial because of the strength of our case against their policyholder.
Our New Haven attorneys use proven negotiation techniques to seek a fair settlement, whether that occurs before or after we file the paperwork to begin a personal injury lawsuit. When we do not negotiate a settlement, we take these cases to trial and ask the jury to award appropriate compensation.

We will work to identify these issues as the cause of a New Haven motorcycle crash during our investigation. When this occurs, we continue to gather the necessary evidence to build a compelling case against the manufacturer and hold them accountable.
