Riding a motorcycle in Connecticut is one of the best ways to enjoy our state year-round. Rarely a week goes by during the summer months in which there isn’t at least one motorcycle-related event, and the colorful falls are best taken in without the limitations of a car's roof. Thankfully, due to the work of state and local road crews, riding a motorcycle is possible even in the colder and wetter winter and spring months, allowing bikers to ride nearly every day of the year.
While riding a motorcycle can be really enjoyable, it can also be incredibly dangerous. Even bikers who carefully adhere to motorcycle safety precautions cannot prevent accidents caused by the negligence of others. Sadly, motorcycle accident injuries are often substantially more serious than those suffered by occupants of passenger vehicles.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Some motorcycle accidents are, of course, caused by the actions of the rider, but not nearly as many as are caused by the actions or negligence of others. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that the leading cause of motorcycle accidents in Connecticut is the behavior of other drivers. This can include things such as:
- failure to see a biker
- failure to cede right of way
- aggressive driving around motorcycles
All of these can result in serious or fatal injury for bikers and their passengers.
