INJURY LAWYER FOR BICYCLE HIT BY CAR IN MINNEAPOLIS
Cars have to share the roads in Minneapolis with bicycles. The City of Minneapolis encourages a big city, urban, atmosphere. This means more pedestrians, more bikes, and more mass transit sharing the roads. There are now bike lanes throughout Minneapolis, and plenty of places to lock up your bike when you get there. Plus, of course, there are bike paths around the lakes and many parks.
Unfortunately, there is still a problem with distracted drivers not seeing bicycles on the road. Our lawyers have been getting more cases of a bike rider hit on the street in a bike lane, or even on a bicycle path. The bike rider is often seriously injured by this type of accident. Our top rated Minneapolis bicycle car accident lawyers often see clients with broken bones requiring surgery, severe road rash, head injuries, and other bad problems. A person on a bicycle is very vulnerable to serious injury if the bike is hit by a car.
You can call us and speak with an attorney after you were hit by a car while riding your bike in Minneapolis on the street or bike lane. A lawyer will advise you of your rights and make sure you are fully compensated for your injuries. The first step is to complete a thorough investigation to prove the driver was at fault. (The Minneapolis Police should identify witnesses.) Our lawyers will then look at the insurance of the vehicle that hit you while you were riding your bike.
If your injury is serious, you will most likely have additional insurance benefits available from your own automobile insurance (No Fault benefits). There may even be insurance coverage from the policy of a relative you live with.
