Bicycle And Pedestrian Accidents
Standing Up For Injured Pedestrians
Pedestrians have no protection in the event of a collision with a motor vehicle. When accidents strike, defenseless pedestrians can suffer head injuries, spinal cord injuries and other severe and life-threatening injuries. All too often, pedestrian accidents result in wrongful death.
If you or someone close to you has suffered a pedestrian accident in Stillwater or anywhere in the Twin Cities metro area, Stoudt Law is here to stand up for your rights. We are proven advocates for injury victims in Minnesota.
Also Handling Bicycle Accident Claims
Bicyclists have equal right to the roads as cars and trucks, but those rights are not always respected. When a motor vehicle collides with or sideswipes a bicycle, it is the bicyclist who suffers the injuries.
Common causes of bicycle accidents include:
- Motorists failing to stay out of bicycle lanes
- Vehicles crowding a bicycle off the shoulder of the road
- Red light and stop sign violations
- Dooring accidents, in which someone opens the door in the cyclist’s path
