Scooter Accident Lawyer

If I am involved in a scooter accident, what should I do?
As soon as you are fully aware and fully able, you should call the police to report your accident. While you are waiting for the authorities to arrive at the scene, you may want to photograph the accident and exchange information with the driver of the other vehicle, the passengers and any witnesses.

When the police and ambulance arrive, you should immediately undergo medical examination to determine what injuries you have sustained. Also, ensure that the police have filed a report of the incident and any information that might be relevant.

Be sure to watch what you say about the accident and never admit fault. You should speak to an attorney as soon as possible after the accident.

Do I have a viable scooter accident claim?
It is difficult to determine for yourself whether you have a reasonable scooter injury claim. In these matters, it is always best to speak with an experienced scooter accident attorney as soon as possible after your accident.

Your attorney will be able to tell you the actions you must take in order to ensure the viability of your claim and will be able to assess your claim.

How should I choose my scooter injury lawyer?
Finding the right personal injury attorney for you can be the key to your entire case. An experienced attorney will be able to walk you through the entire legal process and help you to get back on your feet after an accident.

When you start looking for your attorney, it may be beneficial for you to ask your friends and family for suggestions as to who they know that will make a good attorney. Additionally, you may choose to look on websites such as the American Association of Justice, for recommendations on who is a qualified scooter accident attorney in your area. You may also wish to contact us to have an experienced attorney in your area recommended to you.

After you have some attorneys in mind, you should narrow down your choices by having them evaluate your claim and giving you their past case record. Most attorneys will offer you free case evaluation and may even offer you their services on a contingency fee basis.

Could I be found at fault for my scooter accident?
Just as any other motorist, you as a scooter rider must obey the laws of the road. If you are found to have been disregarding or deliberately disobeying the traffic laws at the time of your accident, then it is likely you will be found at fault for the accident.

It is always important to remember that you should not mix alcohol or drugs with driving. Even if you are not required to have your scooter licensed, if you are found to be under the influence you could lose your license and be charged with DUI.

How much should I expect to get from my case?
It is never possible to know how much you will gain from your case until you have spoken to a qualified defective scooter attorney. An attorney should be able to give you an idea of how much your case is worth and whether you will be able to make a claim.

However, it is important to remember that the jury will be the true judge of how much money you can receive in compensation. Your case may be swayed by the reliability of your witnesses and experts and by the credibility of you and your attorney.

What damages can I gain compensation for?
You can gain compensation for any damages you or your property suffered through the negligence of another. Damage compensation might include:

  • Medical and hospital expenses.
  • Lost income.
  • Pain and suffering.
  • Wrongful death.
  • Disfigurement.
  • Physical and mental impairment.
  • Damage to your scooter.

How much will my lawyer charge?
Without speaking to a lawyer, you will not be able to know exactly how much you will be charged for his services. It is important to compare offers to ensure that you receive the best compensation at the lowest price.

Some lawyers will offer you services at an hourly rate, meaning that every hour they spend working on and prosecuting your case, you will be charged.  Other lawyers offer their services on a contingency fee basis, meaning that you will be charged a percentage of your winnings, thus, if you don't win, you won't get charged.
