Bicyclists Have a Right to the Road in Connecticut

As a starting point, it is important to emphasize that cyclists have a right to use public roads in Connecticut. Indeed, state law holds that bicyclists enjoy most of the same rights as motorists. The law views bicycles as vehicles, granting cyclists the right to share the road and requiring them to adhere to traffic regulations. Cyclists are entitled to a safe, respectful coexistence on the roads. 

What to Know About Bicycle Accident Liability

Connecticut is a fault-based state for bicycle accident injury claims. The party—whether a driver or otherwise—who causes a bike accident through negligence can be held liable for the resulting damages. Notably, Connecticut is a comparative negligence jurisdiction. If you are involved in a bicycle accident, liability will be distributed among parties based on their percentage of fault. A bicyclist can be found partially liable for their own crash—and that leads to a reduction of financial compensation. Every bike accident in Hartford should be carefully investigated by a lawyer.
