Bridgeport Motorcycle Accident Law Firm

Bridgeport Motorcycle Accident Law Firm

According to the Connecticut Department of Transportation there were a total of 1,586 total motorcycle accidents in 2008 which resulted in 1,194 injuries, 54 fatalities and 338 cases of property damages. Furthermore, the U.S. Department of Transportation has provided statistics indicating that there were six motorcycle accident fatalities throughout Fairfield County in 2011.

A motorcycle is defined as a two or three wheeled vehicle which can be designed for long distance traveling, navigating through congested traffic, cruising, racing, or off-road use. They are one of the most affordable forms of transportation throughout the world, while over 200 million motorcycles are in use worldwide.

The motorcycle accident attorneys at Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers recognize that motorcyclists are over 18 times more likely to be killed in an accident than those who choose to travel in passenger vehicles or other forms of transportation. Our attorneys have great sympathy for these individuals and believe that any injuries caused by another individual’s negligent actions are worth being compensated for. Our team has years of experience handling motorcycle accident litigations and will help you achieve the justice you deserve.
