Minnesota Pedestrian Accidents
When car, truck, or bus drivers hit pedestrians in crosswalks, on sidewalks, or elsewhere, they should be held accountable for the injuries that they cause. Our Minneapolis pedestrian accident lawyers bring results to clients by investigating the pedestrian accident, interviewing eyewitnesses, and evaluating injuries. We devote the resources necessary to demonstrate that the driver was at fault. Open to fair settlements during the process, we are willing to take your fight to court to get you fair compensation.
Twin Cities Bike Accidents
According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, Minneapolis is number two in the nation for the percentage of commuters who bike to work. Bike routes throughout the Twin Cities — such as the bike lane down Hennepin — make biking an appealing commuter option. However, bikers are often required to bike in the streets, alongside traffic. With little protection beyond a helmet and safety lights, they must depend on automobile drivers to pay attention and drive cautiously around them.
When a driver’s negligence causes a serious accident, our Twin Cities bike accident lawyers step in to protect the rights of bike riders and recover financial compensation for their injuries. Whether you were involved in a bike accident on Hennepin, Franklin, Portland, Lyndale, Minnehaha, Cedar, University, 26th, Washington, Riverside, West 7th, Kellogg, 6th, or any other route in the Twin Cities, we can help.
Who Caused the Pedestrian or Bike Accident?
In order to determine whether you can recover compensation from the driver, we must first determine if he or she was negligent. Pedestrians and bikers do not always have the right of way. In Minnesota, bikes are not allowed on the sidewalk. If a driver does not see a biker on the sidewalk and pulls into him or her, the driver is probably not at fault. Similarly, pedestrians walking across the street against a traffic light or without a crosswalk may be unable to bring a personal injury action against drivers who hit them.
Our Minneapolis pedestrian accident lawyers will sit down and talk to you about your pedestrian or bike accident case and your chances for recovery. We will be honest with you and take the time to answer all of your questions.
Pedestrian and bike accident injuries are often serious, from broken bones to brain injury, paralysis and wrongful death. When you want old-world personal service for your serious personal injury case, contact us. Our Twin Cities pedestrian and bike accident lawyers are dedicated to being there for you. We can meet with you at your home, office, or hospital, any day of the week, any time of the day.
