Scooter Accidents

Mopeds and electric scooters have surged in popularity in recent years as a fun and cost-efficient mode of transportation. In cities where traffic is heavy and parking is limited, they’ve become an attractive alternative to driving a car.

Unfortunately, because of their small stature and lack of protective features, mopeds and electric scooters are dangerous to operate. If you were injured in a moped or electric scooter accident and believe someone else was at fault, you may be eligible to recover significant financial compensation. Read on to learn how a Morgan & Morgan scooter accident lawyer can help.

Causes of Moped and Electric Scooter Accidents

Although mopeds and electric scooters are an enjoyable and economic alternative for short trips, they do represent certain risks for riders. Some common causes of accidents include:

  • Distracted Driving: Distracted driving accounts for approximately a quarter of all motor vehicle accident-related deaths. Other drivers may get distracted behind the wheel by texting, talking on the phone, eating, playing with the radio, or any number of activities.
  • Poor Visibility: Mopeds and electric scooters are small compared with cars and trucks, so they can be more difficult for other motorists to see. This can be especially problematic when a vehicle is turning into a bike lane while a moped is approaching.
  • Road Hazards: Potholes, uneven surfaces, and debris all pose potential hazards on the road.
  • Impaired Drivers: Drivers who are under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol pose a threat to all motorists, including moped and scooter riders.
  • Tailgating: Mopeds and scooters are often rear-ended by drivers who follow too closely, not allowing sufficient time and space to stop.

Proving Negligence

If you were the victim in a moped or electric scooter accident and believe the other party was at fault, you might be wondering how to go about proving it. “Negligence” is the legal term for liability or responsibility in an accident. Proving liability generally involves satisfying the following criteria:

  • The other driver owed you a duty of care. They were responsible for operating their vehicle in a safe manner.
  • They breached their duty. The other driver breached their legal obligation to avoid harming you.
  • Their breach caused the accident. The other party’s actions were responsible for the accident, making them legally liable.
  • There were losses suffered as a result. The other party’s actions caused you injury and/or property damage.

Potential Damages

If you were injured in a moped or electric scooter accident, you may be eligible to recover compensation for:

  • Lost wages and diminished earning capacity
  • Past, current, and future medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Physical therapy
  • And more

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
