Connecticut Bike Accident Attorneys
The Quality Legal Counsel You Need, When You Need It Most
The most common cause of bicycle accidents involves the drivers of cars,
trucks, and buses failing to see, yield or “share the road”
with bicyclists. These situations often occur when drivers are distracted
by activities like texting or talking on cell phones, driving while intoxicated,
or simply not paying attention to the bicyclists that may be right in
front of them.
If you or a loved one sustained injuries while biking, turn to our bike accident lawyers in Connecticut. We can help you seek fair compensation.

to do so can lead to fines. Connecticut is currently one of 22 states
with this requirement.
