BICYCLE HIT BY CAR IN BIKE LANE – MN INJURY LAWYERS
The Twin Cities have many miles of bike paths and bike lanes that are designated for bicycle riders. However, many of the bike lanes share the road with cars. This means they depend on the car driver to be aware and not hit the bike rider in the bike lane. Unfortunately, any car can have a distracted driver, even if for a moment. In many cases, this results in a serious injury for the bike rider – even riding in the bike lane.
BICYCLE RIDER HIT IN BIKE LANE ENTITLED TO COMPENSATION
At the Rochlin Law Firm, our lawyers represent people injured when a car hits a bicycle rider or motorcycle rider. This is always because the driver was not paying attention or was distracted. The bike lane is designed specifically to allow space for people riding a bicycle and is supposed to be safe. Accidents in a bike lane are almost always the driver’s fault. The driver’s auto insurance should therefore pay compensation to the bike rider.
Our lawyers have more than 25 years’ experience representing hundreds of people injured in accidents throughout Minnesota, including bike riders hit in the bike lane. We will help you recover medical bills, lost wages, and more.
The primary focus of our best bike accident lawyers is to make sure the injured bike rider receives all of the compensation they are entitled to and that the car driver is help responsible. We work to get the medical bills paid, lost wages reimbursed, compensation for scar and permanent injuries, and for the pain and suffering of the accident. If you have been hit by a car while riding your bike in the bike lane, call us and speak with an attorney for a free consultation.
