Motorcycle riders are susceptible to serious injury when involved in a car accident, as their limbs are completely exposed. This often results in serious fractures, breaks and other injuries to arms and legs, often causing staggering wage losses and medical expenses.
It is important to be prepared when filing a claim for a motorcycle accident injury with a lawyer in CT. Items and documents that may be imperative to the outcome of your case include:
- A copy of the police report that details the accident
- Photos of the scene of the accident as well as the injuries caused
- Names and contact information of witnesses
- Any traffic tickets the other motorist was issued
- Copies of medical bills and records
- Evidence to support loss of wages due to missed days at work
