Serious Injuries… Competent Lawyers Daños Serios… Abogados Competentes

Motorcycle accidents may require independent investigation

Most Connecticut motorcycle riders would agree that the same advantages of riding also open them up to additional risk. Other drivers who somehow fail to see riders cause many motorcycle accidents. Being on a motorcycle in a crash often means more serious injuries and a greater possibility of death. Obtaining compensation for injuries -- or for the loss of a loved one -- may require an independent investigation to ensure that all of the available physical evidence and witness statements are acquired and preserved.

It makes little sense to rely solely on police reports when nothing less than your future is most likely at stake. This is not to say that Connecticut law enforcement officials are not thorough. However, their goals may not align with what would be needed in order to establish negligence in a civil action. The official investigation often attempts to determine whether any criminal activity contributed to the crash, which requires a more stringent burden of proof than is needed in a Connecticut civil court.

In addition, it will be necessary to assess the damages you sustained as a result of the crash, which requires inquiry as well. Depending on the circumstances, your ability to earn income, enjoy life and participate in other activities could be severely curtailed by your injuries. You may also have lost a source of income if you lost a loved one, along with other damages.

Motorcycle accidents can take a heavy toll on you and your family. You deserve the best representation possible in order to pursue recovery of the restitution you deserve. If the available evidence proves to the court that your injuries -- or the fatal injuries suffered by a loved one -- were the result of someone else's negligence, you may be awarded the damages you seek.
