Skid Mark Analysis in Motorcycle Accidents

Connecticut Attorney Applying Skid Mark Analysis in Motorcycle Accidents

We have over 25 years experience in recovering compensation for people injured in motorcycle accidents. We understand how important skid mark analysis may be in proving your case. Contact us.

Motorcycle accidents are different from car accidents. Most bike riders have a natural tendency to hit the rear brake, largely due to the fact that a sudden application of the front brake can cause a motorcycle to flip. Unfortunately, most motorcycles are designed such that only about 40 percent of the braking power is in the rear brakes.

Motorcycle riders have to work hard to learn to use the front brake effectively without flipping the bike. In many motorcycle accidents, skid mark analysis is the only way to determine how the brakes were used. This is important because insurance companies will often cite improper application of brakes as an excuse for denying a claim.

If you suffered serious injury or lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, it may be vitally important to contact an attorney with extensive experience and a thorough understanding of the application of skid mark analysis in these cases.

Dedication and Experience that Works

At the Law Offices of John J. LaCava, LLC, we are dedicated to helping people throughout Connecticut recover compensation after a motorcycle crash that resulted in serious injuries ranging from badly broken bones to life-altering head, brain or spinal cord injuries. We also represent families of bikers who lost their lives in crashes and collisions.

Insurance companies will sometimes go to great lengths trying to minimize or deny motorbike accident claims, especially those involving catastrophic injuries or loss of life. One of the most common defenses is that the biker was somehow responsible for the accident by failing to respond with a proper application of the brakes. These are cases in which our experience in skid mark analysis can make a real difference in the negotiation of a fair settlement.
