Proving Liability after a Motorcycle Accident in Connecticut

In order to receive any compensation you must be able to show that the other individual was fully or mostly to blame for the accident. Once responsibility has been unquestionably established the valuation of an accident claim rests on the determination of the general damages and the special damages. General damages consist of:

  • The full price of treatment for your injuries
  • Pain & discomfort caused by these injuries
  • Type of injuries
  • Time it will take to recover from those injuries
  • Long lasting effects due to injuries
  • How much your injuries have impacted your life

Special damages entail any monetary losses accrued as a direct result of your injuries or any expenses you’ve had to pay. These consist of the following:

  • Lost wages & potentially lost income
