BICYCLE HIT BY CAR ON SHOULDER OF ROAD – MN INJURY ATTORNEY
If a car hits someone riding their bike on the shoulder of the road, the driver of the car is responsible and must pay compensation for any resulting injury. Our lawyers have represented many bicycle riders in Minnesota who have been hit by a car. The injuries can be serious when someone riding their bike on the shoulder of the road is hit by a car. For one thing, the bike is usually hit from behind, because the bicycle is going the same direction as traffic, so the bike rider has no chance to avoid or prepare for the collision. Also, unlike a car, the bike provides no protection for the rider – the bicycle rider is completely exposed to injury from a car accident.
Bicycles on the road, or the shoulder of the road, are a frequent occurrence in Minnesota, now more than ever. A person driving a car has an obligation to watch the road and obviously not hit a bike rider. There is usually no excuse for a car accident where the car hits the bike rider from behind.
