WHAT INSURANCE IS AVAILABLE IN CT?
All CT drivers are required to carry a minimum of $25,000/$50,000 in insurance coverage. As such, if a motorcycle rider is involved in an accident and the at-fault driver has insurance, the rider will have at least $25,000 in coverage available to him or her. Many drivers choose to purchase underinsurance coverage in addition to the minimum requirements. Underinsurance can help compensate the victim if he or she suffers injuries that are worth more than $25,000 (or more than the at-fault driver’s policy limit). Call Trantolo & Trantolo today to find out more about the various types of insurance available.
ARE MOTORCYCLE CASES HARD TO PROVE IN NEW HAVEN?
Motorcycle accident claims are unique and can be hard to prove. The insurance company may argue that the other driver is only partially at fault because he or she did not see the rider. In addition, insurance companies often attempt to minimize your pain and suffering to lower your settlement. It would be best to have a lawyer who has experience fighting these tactics. Trantolo & Trantolo has been helping our New Haven clients recover the highest settlements possible for their motorcycle accident claims for over 80 years. We know what it takes to get the most for your injuries.
If a defective part on your motorcycle caused you to crash and suffer an injury, you could be entitled to receive a settlement from parties such as the manufacturer of the bike, manufacturer of the defective part, or the garage that repaired the bike. If you suspect that a faulty part, such as tires, brakes, lights, or other components, may have caused your motorcycle accident, it is critical that you speak with an experienced New Haven accident attorney as soon as possible.
WHAT IF THE CRASH IS FATAL?
Some motorcycle accidents are severe enough to cause fatal injuries. If you lost a loved one in a motorcycle crash, you might be entitled to a settlement from the negligent driver’s insurance company to compensate you for your losses. You could be paid for things such as medical bills, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, loss of relationships, and more. The attorneys at Trantolo & Trantolo are here to guide you through these difficult times and are always available to answer your questions.
WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER?
Motorcycle crash claims can be challenging for various reasons. As such, your lawyer must have experience handling these types of cases. Time is of the essence because as time passes, the more likely it becomes that evidence will be lost or witnesses’ memories of the accident will diminish. Your lawyer needs to know the deadlines for filing your case to recover a settlement for your injuries successfully. For example, in CT, the statute of limitations for filing a motorcycle accident lawsuit is two (2) years from the accident date.
