Bicycle Accident Lawyers
As more bicyclists are on the road in Minnesota, the number of fatalities and injuries has also increased. A crash between an automobile and a bicycle can result in disaster for the bicyclist. In 2015, there were 898 bicycle crashes. Fatalities and injuries are also on the rise. There were 873 bike injuries, up from 755 injured bicyclists the year before. Bicyclist fatalities doubled to 10 in 2015, from 5 in 2014.
According to the state of Minnesota’s traffic laws, bicycles are considered “moving vehicles,” just like cars and trucks–but bicyclists don’t have the luxury of a protective steel cage to protect them in an accident. Because of this vulnerability, bicyclists are almost always injured in a crash with a car. Car-bicycle collisions can cause serious head and brain trauma, life-altering bodily injuries, and in the worst cases, death. Even in the best-case scenario, the bicyclist can escape an accident with injuries that will have other consequences, perhaps making it difficult to work or preventing the bicyclist from fully enjoying life for years to come.
