Motorcycle Accidents In Connecticut
According to reports published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, one out of every ten traffic fatalities involves a motorcycle collision. It is alarming to know that motorcycles account for less than 1% of vehicles on roadways across our country while drivers continue to account for nearly 15% of all persons killed in traffic collisions.
In Connecticut, over 30 people die annually in motorcycle collisions. When these individuals lose their lives, they often leave behind friends and family members who grieve their loss.
