Connecticut’s Original Motorcycle Attorneys
At Trantolo and Trantolo, we have a unique and very special relationship with motorcycle riders, and have an outstanding reputation for successfully fighting insurance companies on their behalf. We are motorcycle injury lawyers. In Connecticut, and in the Northeast, we are well respected as riders and as attorneys and are an integral part of the motorcycle community. Attorney Vincent Trantolo rides, as do several other members of our staff. We know and love the freedom of the road. This knowledge and love give us a special appreciation and understanding of the riding experience and awareness that makes us unique among Connecticut law firms.
HOW MUCH IS MY CT MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT CASE WORTH?
If the other driver involved in the crash was partially or entirely at fault, we might be able to get you a settlement for losses such as:
- Medical costs
- Pain and suffering
- Mental Anguish
- Property damage
- Wrongful death
- Other Losses
In a motorcycle crash case, pain and suffering are the most difficult losses to prove because insurance companies try to minimize them. What really matters is how severe the injury is. For example, a victim with a sprain will be entitled to less than one with a broken bone. The longer the victim suffers in pain, the more their injury is worth. The CT motorcycle accident lawyers at Trantolo & Trantolo know what to do to get the most for your pain and suffering.
CATASTROPHIC MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT INJURIES
- Ejected From Motorcycle After Accident
- Surgery After a Motorcycle Accident
- Death After a Motorcycle Accident
HOW MUCH INSURANCE DOES CONNECTICUT REQUIRE?
All CT drivers must purchase a minimum of $25,000/$50,000 insurance coverage. In addition, most drivers will purchase underinsurance coverage. Underinsurance can help cover your claim if the other driver does not have enough insurance to cover your injuries. Therefore, if you and the other driver are both insured, you will probably have a minimum of $50,000 available to compensate you for your losses. The CT motorcycle accident lawyers at Trantolo & Trantolo can explain the numerous coverage types available and what benefits you could be entitled to.
ARE MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT CASES HARD TO PROVE IN CT?
Motorcycle accident claims can be challenging to prove because the insurance companies will often argue that the other driver did not see the motorcycle, and, therefore, he or she is not entirely at fault. The CT personal injury lawyers at Trantolo & Trantolo have more than 80 years of experience fighting these tactics. We know what to do to get the compensation you deserve and are here to guide you through the entire process.
WHAT IF THE MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT IS FATAL?
In the unfortunate event that a motorcycle crash is fatal, the victim’s loved ones may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the negligent driver. Surviving family members could be entitled to compensation for lost income, medical bills, burial costs, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of relationships. Speak with an experienced CT motorcycle crash lawyer for a free case evaluation to find out everything you could be entitled to.
WHAT IF THE MOTORCYCLE WAS DEFECTIVE?
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident in CT and the motorcycle was defective, you need to talk to an experienced CT personal injury lawyer. The accident’s cause is important, and different parties could be responsible depending on which part was defective. Make sure to tell your CT motorcycle accident attorney if the crash may have been caused by:
- The manufacturer of the bike
- The manufacturer of a component
- The garage where you took the bike for service
Examples of motorcycle defects and defective parts include:
- Tire defects
- Wiring defects
- Headlight, tail light, or turn signal defects
- Handlebar defects
- Fuel line defects
