Connecticut Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Connecticut Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Over 50,000 motorcyclists suffer physical injuries each and every year in the United States. In addition, upwards of 2,000 people are killed each year due to a motorcycle accident. Fortunately, these numbers have been decreasing in the last 2 years. However, as the economy continues to improve, motorcycle travel is expected to rise, increasing the likelihood of motorcycle-related fatalities.

In general, traveling by motorcycle is far more dangerous than any other type of motor vehicle. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a motorcyclist is 8 times more likely to be injured in an auto accident than a driver of a car. Even worse, a motorcycle rider is 37 times more likely to die in a motorcycle crash than the occupant of a car in an auto accident.

The aftermath of a motorcycle wreck can truly be catastrophic. When it comes times to handle the logistics of your case, Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers is here to guide you throughout each and every step in the legal process. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident in Connecticut, a motorcycle collision attorney is here to help.

Motorcycle Safety Tips

Operating a motorcycle is risky. While you can control yourself and your vehicle, there is no telling what the other motorists on the road will do. For this reason, understanding and exercising the highest level of safety at all times is essential.

Keep these motorcycle safety tips in mind:

  • Be visible: wear bright colored clothing, use reflective strips or decals, and be aware of blind spots
  • Wear a helmet, eye protection, thick jackets and pants
  • Give yourself extra space, cars have trouble seeing motorcycles
  • Always use turning signals, including changing lanes
  • Check the maintenance on your bike: lights, brakes, turning signals, oil and fuel levels, etc.
  • Be extra alert at all times

Placing a greater emphasis on motorcycle safety can significantly reduce the likelihood of a motor vehicle accident. Always be an aware, alert, and attentive driver.
