Our scooter accident attorneys hold negligent drivers accountable
What is a moped accident or scooter crash, and how do they happen? Some drivers don’t pay attention to motorized scooters and mopeds. Or they simply think of them as little more than a nuisance on the roads. A driver who is speeding, distracted or operating recklessly can easily miss seeing a scooter or moped and is unable to react in time to prevent a collision.
If a negligent driver caused your accident, you deserve compensation, but it can be a complicated process. Negligent drivers often deny responsibility in accidents and don’t admit to doing anything wrong. They may even try to blame you for causing the accident. For example, they’ll claim you cut in front of them with your motorized scooter or moped.
Don’t expect much help from the insurance companies. Their main concern is their bottom line. They want to keep their profits as high as possible, so they’ll try to keep your payments as low as possible. There are many tactics they use to try to limit your compensation. They may:
- Question the seriousness of your injuries
- Argue your injuries were pre-existing
- Argue you don’t need any further medical treatment
- Claim the accident was your fault
- Make you a lowball settlement offer
