Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Serving Ridgefield & all of Connecticut

If you have been injured in an accident caused by another person’s negligence, our experienced motorcycle accident attorneys at Hastings, Cohan & Walsh, LLP can help you fight for the compensation you deserve. We have decades of experience helping injured accident victims protect their rights and pursue justice.

Your Risk Level as a Motorcyclist

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcycles are 35 times more likely to be involved in a traffic accident than a regular passenger vehicle. Over 75% of all motorcycle accidents are small vehicle collisions, many of which occur when another driver fails to notice the presence of the motorcyclist.

It is a myth that most motorcycle accidents occur at high speeds; in fact, the majority happen at an average speed of 29mph. Regardless, the risk of serious injury is incredibly high, since a motorcyclist does not have any external frame to protect them.

Protecting Your Rights After a Motorcycle Accident

After a motorcycle accident, it is critical that you avoid giving statements or signing documents at the scene of the accident. These actions could compromise your rights and your case.

You should also be sure to do the following:

  • Make sure you are examined by a medical professional.
  • Gather contact information from other involved parties and witnesses (names, phone numbers, license plate numbers, etc).
  • Take photographs of the damage at the scene.
  • Call an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer to thoroughly investigate the scene of the wreck.

Liability and Compensation in a Motorcycle Accident Case

Connecticut accident law is governed by modified comparative negligence, which means that if you are found 51% or more liable for your motorcycle accident, you cannot recover any compensation.

This is why it is so important to hire an experienced Connecticut motorcycle attorney. We know how to build an effective motorcycle injury case that argues for the other party’s full liability, helping to maximize the amount of compensation you are able to recover.

Why Choose Us?

At Hastings, Cohan & Walsh, LLP, we handle all of our motorcycle accident cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning you will pay nothing out of pocket or upfront. Our firm advances all costs of development, expert witness fees, and other expenses related to your case. You only need to pay us if we recover compensation for you. Otherwise, we will absorb all of the losses associated with building your case.

With over 100 years of collective experience, our skilled lawyers have received a wide range of awards and recognition for our legal ethics, and legal services.
