Moped Accident Lawyers

Moped, originating from the terminology motor pedals, was originally a motorized bicycle crossover, but has since developed into our modern idea of a moped: essentially a motorized scooter.

Because of a moped's small size (they normally have 50cc engines or less) they generally are not required to be licensed and registered. They are not usually driven at speeds higher than 50 mph.

Unfortunately, because of their small size, they are increasingly difficult to see when compared to larger motorbikes. Also, motor vehicle drivers can sometimes overestimate the capabilities of mopeds and cause accidents.

Moped accidents can be caused by:

  • Failure of drivers to see the moped
  • Aggressive driving
  • Mopeds operating above speed limit or recommended speed
  • Riders expecting moped to operate like motorcycle
  • Driving in dangerous conditions (driving moped on highway)

If you are involved in a moped accident, you may be entitled to compensation. You should immediately consult a personal injury attorney in this case to ensure you follow the steps necessary to ensure a viable claim. Visit the common questions about moped accidents page for more information.

Injuries that are often incurred in moped accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Wrongful death
  • Disfigurement
  • Mental or physical impairment
  • Loss of limbs
  • Broken bones
  • As a moped rider, your rights deserve to be protected just as every other driver on the road. If you or a loved one has been wrongfully injured by a motorist while driving a moped, please contact us to speak to an experienced personal injury attorney today.
