Minneapolis Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Providing the Compassionate, Personalized Representation You Need
Motorcycle accidents are incredibly devastating. Motorcyclists tend to sustain severe, life-altering injuries due to the simple fact that they are relatively unprotected in the event of a collision. All too often, these collisions occur because another motorist was not being careful. Sadly, many motorcycle accident victims have significant difficulties in recovering compensation due to the fact that insurance companies will often go to great lengths to dispute or even deny rightful claims. To make matters worse, the widespread (and incorrect) notion that motorcycles are inherently dangerous can make it even more difficult for injured motorcyclists to recover fair and just compensation after an accident.
Here at Lowe Law Firm, we are prepared to help you navigate the process of filing a personal injury claim and seek the full compensation you are owed. Our Minneapolis motorcycle accident lawyers are highly experienced in overcoming the many challenges injured motorcyclists face, and we have what it takes to advocate for you and your recovery. Most of all, we truly care. Though we are a large team of attorneys, paralegals, medical experts, and accident reconstruction specialists, we still provide each and every one of our clients with caring, personalized service.
Determining Liability in Your Motorcycle Accident Case
Like any other type of motor vehicle accident claim, including cases involving cars and commercial trucks, motorcycle accident cases in Minnesota rely heavily on the issue of liability. In order to bring a claim against a liable person/party, you must first determine who that liable person/party is. Furthermore, Minnesota follows the rule of comparative negligence. This means that, while you can collect compensation if you were partially at fault for the accident, if you are found to be more than 50% at fault for the accident, you are barred from filing a personal injury claim.
So, how can you determine who was at fault for the accident and, therefore, liable for your damages? At Lowe Law Firm, we conduct exhaustive investigations in order to uncover exactly what happened and what factors contributed to or caused the accident that resulted in your injuries. With this information, we are able to determine who was at fault and who is liable. We also look at your medical records, recovery prognosis, time taken off work, and other factors in order to determine the full extent of your damages, including your future damages. This allows us to build comprehensive, all-inclusive claims aimed at recovering compensation for all of your losses.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
In many cases, determining who was at fault for a motorcycle accident means looking at the various actions (or inactions) taken by the other involved driver(s). These actions/inactions are often the cause of the accident.
Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Fatigued driving
- Traffic law violations
- Reckless driving
- Road rage/aggressive driving
- Defective road design/construction
- Automotive defects
Additionally, a motorcycle accident victim’s injuries could be caused by or exacerbated by defective safety equipment, such as a defective motorcycle helmet. Our Minneapolis motorcycle accident lawyers examine all possible avenues of compensation in order to help ensure we recover the maximum amount our clients are owed.

We know that navigating the aftermath of a serious motorcycle accident can be extremely challenging, both for victims and their loved ones. You may be dealing with catastrophic injuries, such as spinal cord injuries, severe road rash, head and brain trauma, and fractures. All of these require extensive medical treatment and, in some cases, lifelong care. This can cause you to have to take weeks or months off work; if you are disabled due to your injuries, you may be permanently unable to return to work. The financial burdens associated with a motorcycle accident are immense—and they almost pale in comparison to the physical and emotional trauma suffered by victims. The worst result of a motorcycle accident is of course the loss of life, which will lead to the filing of a wrongful death claim.
