Connecticut Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Trusted Representation for Motorcycle Accident Claims

Being injured in any type of motor vehicle accident is an extremely stressful experience. In the aftermath of the crash, you’ll need to obtain proper medical attention and could be out of work for days or even weeks. If your injuries are severe, you could find yourself unable to return to work. When you are hit while riding your motorcycle, the risks of suffering life-altering injuries can be quite high.

In a 2019 study, the Department of Public Health found that over 750 motorcyclists were killed in Connecticut. In comparison to other states, Connecticut's motorcyclist fatality rate is exceptionally high. While some may attribute this high death rate to Connecticut's lax helmet use law, this is not always the case.

While many people believe all or even most motorcyclists are reckless, risky drivers, this could not be further from the truth. In reality, the vast majority of motorcycle owners are incredibly safe and skilled drivers. Unfortunately, they cannot always predict what other motorists on the road are going to do, and they cannot always avoid accidents.

What Are Some of the Most Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents?

Research has shown that some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents are caused by cars attempting to make a left-hand turn and striking the motorcyclist. This can occur in several different scenarios:

  • When the motorcyclist is going straight through an intersection and the car makes an unprotected left-hand turn
  • When the motorcyclist is attempting to pass the car on the left and the car turns into them

Some other common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Lane-splitting
  • Collision with fixed objects
  • Poorly maintained roads (loose gravel, potholes, etc.)
  • Speeding
  • Driving while intoxicated

Motorcycle Accident FAQ:

Does Connecticut require motorcyclists to wear helmets?

As of right now Connecticut still requires passengers and operators under the age of 18 to wear a helmet while riding a motorcycle. However, there have been attempts to raise this age to 21 in the last several years.

Are you allowed to lane split in CT?

No. For the time being, Connecticut law still prohibits lane splitting (the act of riding on the line between two separate lanes in order to pass other vehicles).
