Protecting The Rights Of Motorcycle Accident Victims
Many types of motorcycle accidents occur on the highways, roads and streets of Connecticut. When a car or truck collides with a motorcycle, the cyclist is often hurt more severely than the other motorist. Many accidents result in serious injury or fatality for the rider.
Many motorcycle accidents are preventable. Some collisions happen because of excessive motorcycle speed or unsafe turns; some happen because of unsafe road conditions. The most problematic cause of accidents is the negligence of other drivers.
