WHAT INSURANCE IS AVAILABLE IN CT?
At a minimum, CT drivers must carry $25,000/$50,000 in insurance coverage. In a motorcycle accident where the at-fault driver has the minimum required coverage, the rider will have at least $25,000 available to compensate them for their injuries. Drivers often choose to purchase additional underinsurance to help cover their claims if the at-fault driver does not have enough insurance to pay them entirely. The motorcycle accident attorneys at Trantolo & Trantolo can further explain the minimum requirements and determine what other types of coverage are available to you.
ARE MOTORCYCLE CASES HARD TO PROVE IN TORRINGTON?
Motorcycle crash cases can be hard to prove because insurance companies use many tactics to deny liability. For example, insurance companies often argue that because the other driver did not see the motorcyclist, he or she is not entirely liable. The insurance companies may even try to downplay or minimize the severity of your pain and suffering. The Torrington motorcycle accident lawyers at Trantolo & Trantolo know how to combat these tactics and get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Defective parts on the motorcycle can cause some accidents. In these cases, you must speak with an experienced accident lawyer to determine who could be liable for your injuries. Depending on which part of the bike caused the accident, you may have a claim against parties like the motorcycle manufacturer, the part manufacturer, or even the garage that you brought your bike to for repairs. Defective parts may include things such as tires, brakes, fuel lines, wiring, headlights, and more.
WHAT IF THE CRASH IS FATAL?
In the sad cases where a motorcycle rider suffers fatal injuries, the rider’s loved ones might be able to collect a settlement from the other driver’s insurance company. If you lost a family member in a motorcycle accident, you could receive compensation for things like medical bills, burial expenses, pain and suffering, lost income, and more. We know that these are very stressful and difficult circumstances. We are here to help you through the complex settlement process. Please do not hesitate to call us today if you have any questions or concerns.
WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER?
One essential quality to look for in a motorcycle accident lawyer is experience. Motorcycle crash cases present unique challenges. Your lawyer must know how to handle these types of cases. The more time passes, the greater the risk becomes that evidence will be destroyed or witnesses will forget specific details. Therefore, your lawyer needs to act quickly. Also, your lawyer needs to be aware of the statute of limitations to file your claim and all other deadlines associated with your case. In CT, the statute of limitations to file a claim for a motorcycle accident is two (2) years from the date of the injury.
