Connecticut Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Injured? Retain Our Waterbury & New Britain Injury Lawyers: (203) 663-3695

Because of their lack of overall protection, motorcyclists are in danger of suffering devastating injuries and even death as a result of an accident. Those who are injured could require prolonged hospitalization and years of therapy. You need strong representation in order to recover compensation in a lawsuit, and the Law Offices of Brian J. Mongelluzzo, LLC can provide you with just that.

Highways and intersections are getting busier and the amount of motor vehicle accidents are on the rise. Car accidents statistics related to distracted driving are increasing, which means that motorists who are operating a vehicle are even less likely to look out for motorcycles on the road. According to the National Highway Safety Traffic Administration* (NHTSA), the state of Connecticut recorded 57 fatalities as a result to motorcycle accidents in 2017. This is the highest number of motorcycle fatalities Connecticut has experienced since 2013.

What are Connecticut Motorcycle Laws?

According to Connecticut state law, a motorcycle is a motor vehicle that does not have more than three wheels in contact with the ground and whose motor produces more than five brake horsepower. Due to the fact that these motor vehicles are becoming more and more popular on roads, Connecticut motorcycle laws include the following requirements for the safety of all drivers:

5 Important Motorcycle Laws in Connecticut:

  • Headgear and vision protection are mandatory
  • The insurance minimum for motorcycle coverage is a $20,000 claim for damages policy
  • 16 and 17-year-old drivers are prohibited from carrying any passengers on their motorcycle for six months after obtaining a motorcycle endorsement
  • Must have at least one tail lamp mounted on the rear
  • The rear registration license place must be illumined with a white light to render it legible from a distance of 50 feet to the rear
