Now is the time to call the lawyers at Gould Injury Law in New Haven, CT! We are a law firm with experience handling all types of personal injury cases including motorcycle accidents.

Do You Really Need a Lawyer for a Motorcycle Accident?

The answer to this question is simply, Yes!When you are injured in an accident, due to neglect or recklessness on the part of another driver, you have a right to receive compensation for your injuries. This applies whether you are in New Haven or elsewhere in Connecticut. 

However, proving negligence may be a challenge for motorcyclists in some cases. In general, people have a bias against them, believing that anyone who rides a motorcycle is more reckless than other motorists and that motorcycles are all very dangerous. Often, insurance companies will use this bias to lower the value of their claims and offer low settlements to riders who have experienced a personal injury in motorcycle accidents.

It’s true that motorcycles are smaller than other vehicles on the road like cars or trucks. But, as a motorcyclist, you still have the same legal rights as the driver of any car or truck.

The truth is that most automobile drivers fail to notice a motorcycle on the road. Some motorists just simply don’t have the same respect for a motorcycle as they do for the automobiles on the road. This is why you need a fast-working law firm, like Gould Injury Law in New Haven, to provide you with an accident lawyer who will aggressively fight for you! 

The fact that you, as a motorcyclist, do not have the protection of being enclosed in a vehicle, means you are more vulnerable to experience serious injuries or worse. Something unexpected, like debris on the road, or a car rear-ending you, can cause a serious motorcycle accident, with life-changing results. In fact, the federal government estimates that, per mile traveled in 2017, the number of motorcyclist fatalities was nearly 27 times the number for that of car occupants. 

In many cases, this is due to negligence on the part of someone else. 

What Forms of Negligence are There?

  •  Left-hand turns: Due to misjudgment turning left in front of an oncoming motorcycle
  • Speeding: Driving too fast reduces the driver’s ability to slow down to avoid a collision
  • Distracted driving: Usually due to texting or using the cell phone while driving
  • Drunk driving: Driving under the influence impairs judgment and reflexes 
  • Violation of traffic laws: Running red lights, improper lane changing, and tailgating
  • Opening car doors: When the occupant of a parked car fails to look before opening the door
  • Defective design of motorcycle parts: When the manufacturer fails to correct a faulty design or warn of a danger

These types of negligent actions are often the cause of motorcycle accidents which result in serious physical, emotional, and economic consequences including the following. 

Physical damages:

  • Paralysis
  • Brain injuries
  • Organ damage
  • Fractures
  • Loss of limbs
  • Disfigurement and scarring

  • Anxiety

  • Home modifications 
  • Household assistance
