The Kosieradzki • Smith Law Firm represents clients who have been injured in a bicycle accident. These cases can involve a bicycle rider who has been hit by a car, bus or other motor vehicle. In 2007, over 1,000 bicycle crashes involving motor vehicles were reported to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety. The number of crashes in 2007 increased 8% from 2006. One-third of the crashes occurred in the afternoon between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. Sixty-percent of the crashes occurred in cities with a population over 50,000 people. The failure to yield the right of way was the leading contributing factor for these accidents.
Other accidents involve a bicycle and a pedestrian. Some accidents may be caused by a dangerous component of the bicycle, a defective safety product (like a bicycle helmet that fails to protect), or the negligent maintenance or repair of the bicycle equipment.
