The Risks of Riding Motorcycles & Reputation
Connecticut Personal Injury Lawyers
At Carter Mario Injury Lawyers, we realize it takes great skill to safely operate a motorcycle and be aware of all of the elements that can lead to an accident. Our Connecticut motorcycle accident lawyers also realize that due to the risks involved in riding motorcycles, motorcyclists often face a bias from insurance companies when they’re injured in accidents.
We know the reputation exists that motorcycles are dangerous and motorcyclists can be reckless. If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, we’ll help you make sure the insurance company focuses on the real details of your accident-not stereotypes.

On the Road
A motorcyclist, sometimes even more so than other drivers, must be on high alert while riding due to the nature of a motorcycle’s structure, handling, and stability.
There are several factors that motorcycle riders should be aware of while on the road, such as:
- Road conditions – Roads that are broken down, contain pot holes, or have poor drainage can pose risks to motorcycle riders. Motorcyclists can lose control of their bikes or even be thrown from their bikes if they hit potholes or large rocks.
- Road hazards – Where cars and trucks have the ability to drive over small objects in the road or quickly maneuver around large objects, motorcyclists must be careful how they react to objects in the road. Riders can’t drive over objects or make attempts to quickly swerve around them because they could lose stability and lay down their bikes.
- Weather – Motorcyclists are directly exposed to the weather-motorcycles have no hoods, doors, or windshield wipers. Not only bad weather make riding unpleasant, it also makes it more difficult for other motorists to see motorcyclists, especially when it is raining or snowing.
