Recovering Compensation For Motorcycle Accident Victims

Motorcycle accidents are often the worst, due to a rider’s exposure to the road. If you were in a cycle crash and all you got was a broken leg, you were lucky. Many of these accidents end in open head wounds and permanent brain injury, amputated limbs, crippling spinal cord damage, and severe abrasions and burns from being dragged on the road. A significant number of injured riders die.

Whether the rider is just injured or dies, costs balloon: medical bills, rehab, lost wages and more. In the case of death, surviving family members have significant bills to pay.

‘Modified Comparative Fault’

The state of Connecticut follows modified comparative fault. Injured parties may collect damages if they were no more than 50% to blame for the crash. If one defendant is uncollectible, remaining defendants may pay a portion of the claim. So you may collect even if your riding at the moment of impact was not perfect.

When I injured my back at work my employer denied that my injury occurred at work. Because of this they would not pay me disability benefits and pay for my doctors’ bills. Since my back injury was so serious that it required surgery I could not work. My not having a pay check placed my family in a bad situation.
Although many of the issues in my case were complex, Attorney Sousa constantly met with me to explain what was going on with my case. He answered all my questions. Without the legal assistance I received from Sousa & Minogue, LLC , I do not know where my family would be today.
