Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Minnesota
From the Minnesota State Highway 26 (MN 26) stretch of the Tri-State Mississippi River Run to the Minnesota State Highway 61 (MN 61) portion of the Incredible North Shore Tour, the North Star State has numerous scenic roads ideal for motorcycle enthusiasts. The sights to be seen in these areas are indeed something to behold, but motorcyclists in the state are still extremely vulnerable when sharing roads with other motor vehicles in Minnesota.
Negligent drivers of other automobiles can cause devastating motorcycle crashes. Motrocyclists often sustain highly serious injuries in these accidents that can result in significant medical expenses, lost wages, and other astronomical costs.
Need an Injury Lawyer Minnesota represents the people hurt in these types of crashes as well as the families of those killed. Our firm serves communities all over Ramsey County, Anoka County, Saint Louis County, Hennepin County, Dakota County, Washington County, and many other surrounding areas.
Types of Motorcycle Accidents in Minnesota
Some of the most common kinds of motorcycle crashes that Need an Injury Lawyer Minnesota handles include, but are not limited to:
- Drunk Driving Accidents — A person convicted of driving while impaired (DWI, but also known as driving under the influence or DUI in other jurisdictions) will be presumed to be legally negligent and could actually be subject to punitive damages in some cases.
- Left Turn Accidents — One of the most frequent causes of collisions is drivers turning left in front of oncoming motorcycles without recognizing how fast the bike was traveling.
- Rear-End Accidents — Motorcyclists can be thrown several feet from their vehicles when struck behind by larger vehicles—even at low speeds.
- Lane Change Accidents — A driver who fails to recognize a nearby motorcycle can cause an accident if he or she changes into that motorcyclist’s lane when they are traveling in the same direction.
Following any motorcycle accident, a victim should avoid speaking to an insurance company until he or she has legal representation. Representatives for insurers will initially act very sympathetic, but they are generally attempting to get victims to make recorded statements that can be used against them later on.
In many cases, the insurance company for the negligent party will claim that a motorcyclist was in fact to blame for his or her injuries. Need an Injury Lawyer Minnesota will be your legal advocate and work to make sure the negligent party is held fully accountable.
It is important to note that not all motorcycle crashes involve other vehicles. Some cyclists may be seriously injured as the result of improperly installed or defectively manufactured motorcycle parts. Our firm can also handle potential product liability claims in these types of cases.
