Minnesota Bike Injury Attorneys

Motorists and cyclists must obey the same traffic laws including many new bicycle-related laws. Ignorance of the laws is not an excuse when a motorist injures a cyclist.

The most tragic type of bicycle crash is a bike-car collision. Cyclists are completely defenseless traveling on 30 pound bikes when they're surrounded by 3,000 pound cars and trucks racing by them. Common types of bike-car collisions that often end in tragedy include:

Motorist entering roadway
The motorist enters the roadway from a driveway or parking spot and fails to see the cyclist until it's too late.
Motorist failure to yield
The motorist fails to yield to a cyclist by either running a stop light/sign, or by failing to look both ways before continuing.
Motorist turning
Motorist turns left or right directly in front of the cyclist cutting them off.
Motorist passing cyclist
Motorist doesn't see cyclist when passing and strikes the cyclist. The cyclist may see this before it happens, and hit something else when swerving to avoid the motorist.

Bicycle accidents can also be caused by pedestrians, defective bike parts, recalled bike helmets, and other ineffective bicycle safety equipment. Bike accidents can result in many serious injuries such as broken bones, traumatic brain injury, head/neck/spinal cord injuries, and fatal injuries.
