Injured in a Motorcycle Accident in Danbury? Here’s What You Need to Know

When seeking financial compensation after a motorcycle accident, there are many steps involved in the process. There is also a lot you need to know, and there are several mistakes you need to try to avoid. When you choose Berkowitz Hanna, our Danbury motorcycle accident attorneys will make sure you are fully informed, and we will guide you through the steps you need to take in order to maximize your financial recovery.

Here are some of the key facts you need to know as a motorcycle accident victim in Danbury, CT:

1. The Costs of Accident-Related Injuries Can Be Substantial

All types of traumatic accident-related injuries have the potential to lead to significant losses. If your injuries prevent you from working, each day that you are out of work will add to the amount you are entitled to recover. Motorcycle accident victims are also entitled to coverage for their accident-related medical expenses and other out-of-pocket costs, and Connecticut law allows for the recovery of non-financial losses such as pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and loss of enjoyment of life as well.

2. Negligent Drivers Can (and Should) Be Held Liable for Their Mistakes

Most motorcycle accidents are caused by driver negligence, and negligent drivers who are to blame for serious and fatal accidents deserve to be held accountable. If a negligent driver is responsible for your injuries or your loved one’s death, our attorneys can pursue an insurance claim on your behalf. Auto insurance covers all types of driving mistakes (including distracted driving and drunk driving), and we have had significant success in dealing with insurance companies for our clients.

3. Other Factors Could Have Caused or Contributed to Your Accident as Well

While driver negligence is the leading cause of motorcycle accidents, it is by no means the only factor that can be involved. When our attorneys investigate your case, we will examine all potential grounds for seeking financial compensation, including factors such as:

  • Negligent road construction or maintenance
  • Negligent vehicle maintenance or repairs
  • Negligent hiring of unlicensed or inexperienced drivers
  • Vehicle, motorcycle, and safety equipment defects
  • Missing road signs or malfunctioning traffic signals
  • Failure to property secure truck cargo and other similar types of issues

4. You Must Prove Liability and Damages in Order to Recover Just Compensation

As a motorcycle accident victim, it is up to you to pursue your case. The insurance companies are not going to do it for you. If you simply file an insurance claim and wait to see what happens, you are not going to receive the full compensation you deserve. In order to file your claim successfully, you need to have comprehensive evidence of both (i) liability (who is at fault), and (ii) damages (how much you are entitled to recover). Collecting this evidence and presenting it effectively requires experienced legal representation.
