Minnesota Bicycle & Pedestrian Accidents
Accidents involving bicycles and pedestrians can be complex. The injuries are typically far more severe than any sustained within the protective cavity of an automobile. They can involve:
- One or more automobiles
- Commercial trucks
- Other Bicycles
- Other Pedestrians
- Semi static items like removable sewer grate covers
- Permanent fixtures like bike paths
- Obstacles like improperly placed construction signs
- Numerous other obstacles creating hazards to people on foot or two wheels
Immediate medical attention is often unavoidable following a bicycle or pedestrian accident, although at times a person’s adrenalin interferes with the ability to appreciate the seriousness of injury. Take immediate action after a bicycle or pedestrian accident to seek medical attention and have your injuries evaluated.
Bicycle or pedestrian accidents, are likely to have many financial implications, including:
- Liability disputes
- Insurance coverage
- Lost wages
- Massive medical expenses
- Health insurance reimbursement obligations
- And so much more
The extent of damage to a body, a person’s life, and finances is often uncertain until many months have passed. It is always wisest to anticipate the worst while hoping for the best.
Seeking counsel from a qualified personal injury attorney should be handled immediately, to ensure:
- All evidence is preserved
- You are properly counseled when presenting insurance claims
- Your interests are represented in the pursuit of fair and reasonable compensation for your injuries
