It’s no secret: Motorcycles are dangerous. Anyone who has ever worked in an emergency room can certainly attest to the risk riders take as soon as they hop on. Insurance companies get away with charging incredibly high rates because the chance of a crash is so much greater for motorcycles than cars. Unfortunately, motorcyclists can do everything right when riding yet still get into an accident.
Anyone who’s been in a motorcycle collision and suffered injuries because of someone else’s negligence should contact a qualified personal-injury lawyer to seek damages. If you need an attorney in Minneapolis after an accident, we can help.

Two Hurt in Motorcycle Accident With Deer
Granted, people can’t sue animals in personal-injury cases, but the following story illustrates the dangers of riding a motorcycle in general. According to CBS Minnesota, a man and a woman were riding a motorcycle late one evening last month when they hit a deer. The man was driving, and the 42-year-old woman was his passenger.
The man sustained minor injuries, which authorities addressed at the scene. The woman was taken to a local hospital to treat her injuries, which were slightly more extensive.
Police are unsure of the circumstances leading up to the accident, but it could be something as simple as the deer unexpectedly darting into the road. Cases like this occur often in heavily forested areas, and safe driving doesn’t necessarily guarantee a safe ride.
Motorcycle Accidents Harm More Than Just the Riders
The PCH reports on another incident that highlights just how dangerous motorcycle accidents can be even after they occur. There was a motorcycle accident in Minnesota last week, and Trooper Scott Reps was on his way to the scene when he crashed. Reps, who is 48 years old, was hospitalized with serious injuries after his squad car, which had its sirens activated and lights flashing, crashed into another vehicle.
Norman Scott and his wife, Geneva, both 79 years old, died from injuries they sustained in the crash. Had Reps not rushed to the scene of the accident, the couple may still be alive today. It’s easy to forget the ripple effect car accidents can have, especially in heavily congested areas, where the repercussions can be devastating.
