How Do I Know If I Have A Valid Scooter Accident Case?
Scooter accidents are classified as a personal injury claim, which means to have a valid case you must be able to prove that your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. Our experienced attorneys are prepared to help by reviewing your circumstances to see if there is sufficient evidence to establish these four elements of negligence:
- The person responsible for the accident owed you a duty of care to take reasonable steps to prevent harm to you and other motorists or pedestrians on the road
- The person responsible breached the duty of care by operating his or her car in an unsafe way
- Your injuries are a direct result of the responsible party’s negligent actions or inactions
- You suffered damages, such as medical expenses for treatment, lost wages if you missed work while recovering, and pain and suffering for the physical and emotional damages you endured
Proving negligence is challenging and often requires legal help. Our lawyers have extensive knowledge about what is needed to build a strong argument for negligence resulting from a scooter accident.

What Parties May Be Liable For My Scooter Accident?
Sometimes an accident can have clear-cut liability for a crash, but more often, the fault may be shared. This is another area where an attorney can fully assess all of the details surrounding your scooter accident to help ensure any amount of fault you may be assigned is limited.
One or more of the following parties could share liability for a collision involving a scooter:
- Commercial or motor vehicle operators may be liable for a scooter accident if they were driving distracted, impaired, driving aggressively or not following rules of the road.
- Government entities may sometimes be at-fault if there was a known road hazards that was not properly mitigated and an accident resulted.
- Scooter operators can also share liability if they do not understand the rules of the road, do not drive safely, drive impaired or do not pay attention to the road and others around them.
- Pedestrians may be at-fault if they were jaywalking and not paying attention to traffic, darting out into the road without checking for moving vehicles, did not make sure they are visible to others on the road or walking while distracted or under the influence.
- Manufacturers of a scooter could be liable if there was a defective part that caused an accident.
