Were you or a loved one injured in a motorcycle crash?
These injuries might have occurred while you were riding on a motorcycle. If a collision and your injuries resulted in medical bills, you may be entitled to compensation. With the potential for being hurt or killed by a careless driver, it is no wonder that many people are afraid of getting on the road. It’s important to consult a Minnesota motorcycle accident lawyer at your earliest convenience and determine your best course of legal action in this matter.

A motorcycle accident can have lasting effects on you and your family. When you discuss your case with a personal injury (PI) lawyer licensed to practice in Minnesota, there will be many questions.
- Who will pay my medical bills?
- What happens if I cannot return to work?
- What happens if the at-fault driver has little or no insurance?
In this area of the law, most lawyers offer a free consultation and advise you of your potential for making a recovery. You must ask how much time you have left to pursue this claim. Consulting an attorney does not obligate anyone, but your attorney should have extensive experience negotiating claims for motorcycle victims. Ask a lawyer to help you determine how much your motorcycle injury claim might be worth and whether you should file a lawsuit against the defendants.
Justice for Injured Bikers Isn’t Guaranteed!
If you don’t take the right steps, you could miss out on important compensation for these injuries. State law allows motorcycle accident victims to seek damages for injuries, lost wages, and other expenses resulting from the defendant’s negligence.
Common injuries to bikers include:
- Spinal injuries
- Head injuries
- Broken limbs
- Paralysis or loss of feeling
- Nerve damage
- Road rash/scarring/disfigurement
- Loss of function
- Intellectual impairment
- Memory loss
- Damaged or lost teeth
Holding the Defendant Accountable
The most common reason that motorcycle riders get hurt is other drivers aren’t watching the road. This could be due to distractions such as texting and impairments such as alcohol, drugs, and lack of sleep. It doesn’t matter what causes a defendant driver to lose control of the vehicle. A vehicle will do more damage to motorcycle riders because they have no protection to offset the crash’s impact. You and your family might use the courts to hold the defendant accountable for negligence.
Get Aggressive Representation and Make the Insurance Company Pay!
Regardless of why you were hurt on a motorcycle, the long-term effects on your family are not acceptable. Biker injuries also come with an irreversible amount of emotional pain and suffering that impacts the victim’s family. With so many physical changes that can’t be undone, it’s hard for the victim to resume a normal life. It’s challenging for most victims to pay their bills over their lifetime. Without taking legal action, the defendant could get away with careless driving. If you hire an attorney, you have a better chance of demanding compensation for these injuries from the at-fault’s insurance company.
