Motorcycle Accidents in Connecticut
Because motorcyclists have no protection from harm, they are prone to serious injuries and fatalities in the event of an accident. In just one year’s time in Connecticut, approximately 17% of motorcycle accidents led to fatalities. Many others cause serious injuries including road rash, spinal cord injuries, TBIs, fractures, and more. These injuries can be incredibly life-altering in nature and leave a victim feeling helpless and alone. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you have options and should never have to stand alone.
