As motorcycles have become increasingly popular forms of transportation, with millions of people throughout the United States, driving these vehicles. Unfortunately, this has also caused motorcycle accidents and resulting injuries to become a major problem. Motorcycle operators have the exact same rights and privileges as other motorists, but far too many drivers fail to respect motorcyclists on the roadways, placing their lives and health in serious danger.
Motorcycle accidents are more serious for accident victims than most other types of vehicle accidents as motorcyclists are less protected against physical damage than most other drivers. Thus, when a person has been involved in a motorcycle accident in Connecticut, our legal team at the Law Offices of Paul Levin knows just how difficult the recovery and aftermath may be.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
While certain motorcycle accidents are the result of outside factors, far too many are the result of another person or party acting negligently. Some of the most common causes of such accidents include:
- Drunk drivers
- Driver error
- Vehicle malfunction
- Highway defects
- What Is The Statute Of Limitations For Filing A Um/Uim Claim?
- What Happens When An Uninsured Motorist Hits You?
- Should I Have Uninsured Motorist Coverage If I Have PIP Coverage?
