Bicyclists and motor vehicles have to share the road in Minnesota to ensure everyone's safety. Even when taking all the proper safety precautions, a bicyclist is exceedingly vulnerable to severe injuries and death when involved in a crash with a car. These types of car accidents are among the most dangerous because of that vulnerability. Those who are riding a bicycle or have a loved one riding a bicycle who was involved in an accident with a motor vehicle need to know how to pursue compensation for medical expenses and other costs that will inevitably arise.
Most Minnesota residents would agree that someone who harms others should be held accountable for their actions. For instance, recently this blog discussed the number of medical mistakes that are made by doctors which result in harm to patients. These mistakes cause not only serious injuries, but deaths to occur, despite the fact that these tragic incidents could have been prevented if the proper medical care had been provided.
