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

Determining Liability in Your Motorcycle Accident Case
Like any other type of motor vehicle accident claim, including cases involving
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
The goal of our firm is to help you obtain the compensation you need and
