South Dakota Bike Accident Lawyer

In South Dakota, many people rely upon their bikes to get them from place-to-place. While bicyclists can protect themselves by wearing helmets and following the rules of the road, little can be done when they are riding alongside negligent drivers. When negligent drivers are near bicyclists, they may cause serious accidents that leave bicyclists critically injured.

Bicycle Accident Law

According to South Dakota laws, bicyclists have similar rights and responsibilities as motor vehicle drivers. For example, bicyclists are required to follow traffic laws and obey traffic signs, just like the drivers of automobiles.

This also means that when bicycle accidents occur and motor vehicle drivers caused the accidents, drivers may be held liable for any injuries or property damage bicyclists sustained. Injured bicyclists may file personal injury claims to collect compensation from negligent drivers. This compensation can cover their medical bills, lost income, damage to their bikes and pain and suffering. However, it should be known that securing compensation is never easy, which is why victims of bicycle accidents are encouraged to work with a expert personal injury attorney.
