Over the past 30 years the popularity of cycling has increased dramatically, but we continue to see too many serious bike accident injuries caused by car drivers and truck operators who fail to see the cyclists. As cyclists ourselves on Minnesota roads, our personal injury attorneys are particularly sensitive to the cases of bicycle accident victims.

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. If you’ve been injured in a bicycle accident, your well being comes first. Your rights are next. The Minnesota bicycle accident attorneys at Schwebel, Goetz & Sieben bring more than 40 years of experience representing people with bike accident injuries. Our attorneys have successfully represented and fought for clients in numerous bike accident claims and other related cases.

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.

Our experienced personal injury lawyers will fight until the end to make sure you receive full compensation for your losses. And we will go to trial or take on motorists and their insurance companies if necessary. Let us take care of every detail so you can concentrate on the most important part – your recovery.
