Riding a motorcycle can be an exhilarating experience. At the same time, riding a motorcycle in a negligent or reckless manner can be very dangerous.
According to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), motorcycle riders are more likely to end up in an accident than their automobile counterparts. These are poor odds for the safety of a motorcycle rider.
Unfortunately, many of these accidents are caused by other motorists, rather than the rider themselves. If you have suffered serious injuries in a motorcycle accident or collision due to the negligence of another driver, you need experienced insight from a Stamford motorcycle accident attorney.
Peter Rotatori, III of The Rotatori Law Firm can work with you to bolster any personal injury claim. He has more than 30 years of experience in a broad range of personal injury cases and can help you seek the compensation you deserve.
Compared to individuals in vehicles, a motorcycle rider or passenger has very little protection. The rider may have a helmet or a leather riding outfit, but these safety features still provide minimal defense against a speeding vehicle or solid asphalt. As a result, motorcycle operators can be subject to various catastrophic injuries.
Common motorcycle injuries include:
Serious collisions may require complex spinal surgeries, or may even lead to wrongful death. It is vastly important that you work with an experienced attorney who can handle your case and provide the counsel you need to file an appropriate claim.

You can reduce your risk of liability for an accident by using your motorcycle in accordance with common rules of the road and a few topic-specific Connecticut motorcycle statutes. Still, not every injury is covered by motorcycle liability insurance policies.
Many such policies legally exclude personal injury coverage for motorcycle passengers. To prevent suffering injury without coverage, every motorcycle passenger should ask if the driver has motorcycle passenger coverage specific to passengers before taking a ride.
