Moped Accident Lawyer

What actions should I take if I am in a moped accident?
It is most important that you stay calm after a moped accident. As soon as you are able, you should call the authorities to report the accident. Always stay at the scene.

When EMTs or other medical officials arrive, be sure you are carefully examined and that any injuries you have incurred are carefully documented. Also be sure that the police file a detailed report of the accident.

Exchange information with any of the other drivers in the accident as well as passengers and other witnesses. If you are capable, try to take pictures of the accident scene, these may be useful later. Seek legal counsel as soon as possible after the accident and never admit fault to anyone at the scene.

How do I know I have a moped injury case?
You, alone, will not be able to determine the viability of your moped accident case. You should speak to a qualified moped injury attorney immediately after your accident because there may be time limits when filing your claim.

A lawyer will be able to tell you if your case is viable and what action you should take to ensure the proper procedure is followed.

What should I look for in a moped accident attorney?
It is important to look at a variety of sources when searching for your moped accident attorney. The AAJ or your local bar association might be able to recommend a qualified and experienced attorney to handle your case.

You should feel comfortable with your attorney and the way that they handle you and your case. It might be beneficial to look at their track record to see what cases they have handled and won.

Could my moped accident be my fault?
It is possible that an accident with the moped could be your fault. Always be sure to avoid mixing drinking or drugs with riding. Additionally, be sure to ride safely using your signals to avoid collisions.

Never push your moped to speeds higher than allowed by law and do not expect it to have the same maneuverability as a motorcycle.

How much is my case worth?
The value of your case is immeasurable by anyone except the jury. When you meet with an experienced moped injury attorney, you will be given some idea of what you can expect to gain from your lawsuit.

The amount you will be able to recover will depend on the extent of your damages as well as the reliability of your witnesses and experts.

What compensation can I gain for damages?
Once again, the amount you recover will depend on a variety of factors including the extent of your damages and the jury's preference to your case.  Some typical damages you can expect to gain compensation for include:

  • Medical and hospital fees.
  • Loss of income and retraining at work.
  • Wrongful death.
  • Pain and suffering.
  • Damages to your moped.
  • Disfigurement.
  • Physical and mental impairment.

What will an attorney cost?
To recover your damages, it will be necessary to enlist the help of a qualified lawyer. Legal fees vary depending on the specific practice, but generally your lawyer will be compensated in one of two ways:

Your lawyer may be paid on an hourly basis for the work prosecuting, researching and working on your case.

Your lawyer might be paid on a contingency fee basis, meaning that if he doesn't recover for you in court or with a settlement, he won't charge for his services. In this case your lawyer will generally take a percentage of your winnings.
