Motorcycle Accidents

Drivers of cars and trucks have an obligation to share the road with all vehicles, including motorcyclists. When drivers fail to pay attention, they jeopardize the lives of motorcyclists.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are about five times more likely to be injured and 30 times more likely to die than passenger car occupants. These injured riders and the families of those who were fatally injured deserve to be represented by a skilled attorney.

Sheffy, Mazzaccaro, DePaolo & DeNigris, LLP, is a Southington law firm providing aggressive representation for Connecticut residents injured in motorcycle accidents or grieving the death of a loved one following a violent collision. Led by Hartford motorcycle accident attorney Tony Sheffy, we are aggressive in litigating these cases, and we will not settle for less than you deserve. Clients come to us from Waterbury, Bristol and throughout the state because they know we do not back down from a fight.

The Importance Of Hiring A Skilled Waterbury Lawyer

Insurance adjusters will waste little time in contacting the victim or his or her family members to secure statements and negotiate a quick settlement. You should not feel pressured to accept any offer until you have talked it over with your attorney first.

Further, if the case goes to trial, the insurance defense lawyer is likely to try to convince the jury that the rider was somehow at fault for the crash. He or she plays on stereotypes that many people have of bikers as reckless. Our Hartford attorneys are very familiar with these tactics, and we know how to counter them. We often bring in accident reconstructionists and other experts who can explain how the crash really happened, and why you as the rider deserve compensation, not blame.

If you suffered a spinal cord injury, head injury, torn muscles, broken bones or any other type of trauma in a motorcycle accident in Connecticut, reach out to us for the advice and guidance you need.
