Motorcycle accidents frequently lead to serious injury and even death. The smaller size of a motorcycle, combined with its lack of external protection, place riders and passengers at a higher risk of injury out on the open road.
Unfortunately, the risks involved in operating motorcycles often cause riders to face a bias from insurance companies when they suffer injury in an accident that was not their fault. At Hastings, Cohan & Walsh, LLP, our Ridgefield motorcycle accident attorneys understand the uphill battle that injured motorcyclists face – and we know how to effectively negotiate for the full amount of compensation you deserve.

The majority of motorcycle accidents involve other vehicles. Some of the most common types of car-motorcycle accidents include:
A car or truck does not need to physically strike a motorcycle in order for the driver to be held responsible. Some motorcycle accidents occur when the motorcyclist is simply trying to avoid another vehicle’s reckless maneuver. For example, a car may change into a lane without seeing the motorcycle there, forcing the rider to veer away and lose control of the bike.
Additionally, motorcycle accidents can be caused by defective parts within the motorcycle itself, or dangerous road hazards that have not been addressed by local transportation authorities. Our experienced Connecticut motorcycle accident lawyers will thoroughly investigate your motorcycle accident to determine every factor that contributed to it – and which parties should be held accountable.
