Left turn errors cause many motorcycle accidents

Motorcycle enthusiasts are aware of the dangers they face as they indulge in their passion for these two-wheeled vehicles.

Motorcycle accidents: Passenger on Harley dies in rear-end crash

Lives can be lost in an instant, and in many cases, fatalities on the roads follow distractions that may have lasted only seconds. This might have led to a Connecticut accident involving a car and a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Victims of motorcycle accidents have more chances of suffering fatal injuries because they have little or no protection.

Are you protected for an accident with an uninsured driver?

Connecticut operates under a set of laws that requires drivers -- whether they are behind the wheel or a set of motorcycle handlebars -- to carry a minimum amount of insurance. Not everyone does this, however. And those who do get the necessary coverage often opt for only the bare minimum.
