Motorcycle Accidents And Your Legal Rights
No one knows better than a victim of a serious accident that “life is not fair.” And few vehicle accident victims know better than motorcycle accident victims that the personal injury justice system often seems unfair.
From automobile drivers to insurance claims adjusters to judges and juries, those who hear arguments for compensation for the motorcycle accident victim all too often carry prejudices and biases such as the following:
- “You should know that riding a motorcycle is inherently dangerous. You took a risk and lost.”
- “I (the driver of the car in the accident) ‘didn’t see’ the motorcycle that was ‘weaving in and out of traffic,’ until it was too late.”
- “You failed to purchase additional insurance that would have covered your injuries more completely.”
Motorcyclists have heard them all before, and so have our New Haven area attorneys at Williams, Walsh & O'Connor, LLC. We vigorously represent motorcycle accident victims — most of whom operate their bikes legally on roadways and obey highway safety rules.
