WHAT INSURANCE IS AVAILABLE IN CT?
In CT, the minimum insurance coverage a driver must purchase is $25,000/$50,000. This means that in a motorcycle accident where the rider is less than 50% responsible and the other driver has the minimum required coverage, the rider will have $25,000 to cover their injuries. If a passenger is on the motorcycle, each rider will have $25,000 available. In addition to the minimum coverage, drivers often wish to purchase underinsurance. Underinsurance can help cover the rider’s injuries if the at-fault driver does not have enough insurance. The skilled accident lawyers at Trantolo & Trantolo can explain what types of coverage are available and help you decide what is best for you.
ARE MOTORCYCLE CASES HARD TO PROVE IN WATERBURY?
Motorcycle cases can be uniquely challenging to prove due to the many different tactics the insurance companies use to lessen your settlement or award. For example, insurance companies will try to devalue your pain and suffering to lower your compensation. In addition, the insurance company may argue that the other motorist involved in the crash did not see the rider and, as a result, is not wholly liable. Trantolo & Trantolo has 80 years of experience fighting the insurance companies to get the highest settlement your claim deserves.
WHAT INSURANCE IS AVAILABLE IN CT?
All drivers in CT must carry at least $25,000/$50,000 in insurance coverage. Many drivers choose to purchase additional types of coverage, such as underinsurance. Underinsurance can help compensate an accident victim for his or her injuries if they are worth more than the at-fault driver’s policy limit. Typically, if a motorcycle rider is involved in an accident and is less than 50% responsible, the rider will have at least $25,000 available to pay for his or her injuries. Call Trantolo & Trantolo today to learn more about what type of coverage is best for you.
In motorcycle crash cases, it is important to determine if a defective part was the cause of the accident because this can affect which parties are responsible. For example, if a defective part on a motorcycle caused the crash, the rider could file a claim against the bike manufacturer, the part manufacturer, and possibly even the garage that worked on the bike. If you think a defective part on your bike may have caused your crash, you need to speak with a skilled Waterbury motorcycle accident lawyer as soon as you can to get the most compensation possible for your injuries.
WHAT IF THE CRASH IS FATAL?
In some tragic cases, motorcycle riders suffer fatal injuries. In these instances, the victim’s family may be able to file a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance company and receive compensation for lost wages, medical bills, burial costs, pain and suffering, and more. The lawyers at Trantolo & Trantolo understand how difficult and draining these cases are. We want to help make the experience as painless as possible. Contact us today with any questions you may have.
WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR IN A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER?
Motorcycle accident claims often come with unique challenges, so it is important to contact a lawyer that has experience with these types of cases. It is also important to act fast because physical evidence can become lost or destroyed, and witnesses may be unable to remember the events if too much time has passed. Additionally, your lawyer will need to know what deadlines need to be met when filing your claim. In CT, motorcycle accident victims must file a claim within two (2) years from the crash date.
