Accidents are particularly dangerous for motorcyclists. While cars and other motor vehicles have safety features like airbags, steel frames, and seatbelts, motorcycles leave their riders exposed and vulnerable. As a result, motorcycle accidents often result in severe injuries or death.
At Nicolet Law Accident & Injury Lawyers, our compassionate attorneys handle motorcycle accident claims for clients across Minnesota. With over 100 years of combined legal experience, our lawyers are prepared to pursue maximum compensation for our clients’ injuries.
We also understand that many of our clients are concerned they cannot afford legal representation. We are proud to offer free initial consultations to our personal injury clients so that they can explore their legal options without committing to a payment plan.
Most motorcycle accidents result in some kind of injury, and those injuries tend to be severe. Although a minority of motorcycle accident injuries resolve quickly without medical treatment, other conditions have lifelong consequences.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a motorcycle accident, we strongly recommend that you seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Obtaining early medical care increases a victim’s chance at a swift, complete recovery.
At Nicolet Law, our primary goal is ensuring our clients have access to the resources they need to recover from their injuries. While some law firms are not prepared to bring cases to trial to pursue the best outcomes for their clients, we will go the extra mile. We are committed to taking on the insurance companies—even if it means taking the fight to court.
Minnesota has a number of laws governing motorcycle use across the state, which all drivers are required to know and obey.
For example, all motorcyclists are required to carry liability insurance, which covers bodily injury and property damage sustained by another person in an accident. Motorcyclists must carry proof of this insurance whenever they ride.
Minnesota law states that motorcyclists under the age of 18 and permit operators must wear a helmet that complies with the state’s safety standards. Additionally, all motorcyclists, regardless of age or licensure, are required to wear some form of eye protection. Examples of appropriate eye protection include a face shield, goggles, or glasses.
In Minnesota, if someone has been injured in an accident and wants to file a lawsuit, he or she must file that suit within six years of the accident date. If a victim fails to file before the deadline, he or she may lose their right to bring the case to court.
