Injured in a Connecticut Bicycle Accident? Get the Compensation You Deserve.

Cycling is a fantastic way to stay active, explore Connecticut’s beauty, and reduce your carbon footprint. However, sharing the road with motorists carries inherent risks. If you’ve been injured in a bicycle accident due to someone else’s negligence, a skilled Connecticut bicycle accident lawyer can help you fight for fair compensation.


  • Distracted driving: Texting, talking on the phone, or changing the radio can divert a driver’s attention, increasing the risk of accidents.
  • Failure to yield: Motorists must yield the right-of-way to cyclists, especially at intersections and crosswalks.
  • Careless driving: Speeding, tailgating, and weaving through traffic endanger everyone on the road, including cyclists.
  • Ignoring traffic signals: Running stop signs and red lights can lead to devastating collisions.
  • Right turns on red without caution: Drivers must yield to any cyclists in the crosswalk before turning right on a red light.


Connecticut law grants cyclists the same rights and responsibilities as motorists on the road. This means they can use the entire lane if necessary, making it safer for drivers to pass with the required minimum of 3 feet of space. Additionally, cyclists under 16 must wear helmets, and no more than two can ride abreast.

seeking compensation after a bicycle accident

If a negligent driver caused your bicycle accident, your lawyer can pursue compensation through two main legal avenues:

  • Negligence: Your lawyer will demonstrate that the driver:
    • Owed you a duty of care (to drive safely).
    • Breached that duty by violating traffic laws or acting recklessly.
    • Caused your accident through their breach of duty.
    • Resulted in your injuries and damages

Negligence per se: This applies if the driver violated a specific traffic law directly related to your accident, such as failing to maintain a safe distance or disregarding a traffic signal.

Additional Considerations:

  • Aggressive driving: In some cases, your accident might qualify as a crime, allowing you to pursue criminal charges alongside your personal injury claim.

Time limit: Generally, you have two years from the accident date to file a lawsuit in Connecticut.
