Columbia Scooter Accident Lawyer

Unfortunately, the roads are becoming less and less safe for those on two wheels, due to distracted driving, road rage, texting, and other dangerous behaviors that drivers are engaging in more frequently than ever before. If you were hit by a driver while riding your stand-up scooter, moped, motorcycle, or other type of scooter,  Marc Brown can help you file a personal injury claim with the at-fault driver, manufacturer of the defective scooter, or other party who was responsible for the crash.

Damages in a Columbia Scooter Crash

Scooter crashes can lead to severe injuries, often including lacerations, fractured arm or wrist, traumatic brain injury, and fractures to other parts of the body. Victims may be able to file a personal injury claim for the following types of damages:

  • Medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning ability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of joy of life
  • Emotional distress
  • Property damage.

Stand Up Scooters

E-scooters that require the rider to stand have grown in popularity in recent years. Whether you were riding your own electric scooter, or were renting a Lime or other type of ride share e-scooter, you have a right to file a personal injury claim if you were struck by a driver. However, the success of your claim may depend on where you were operating the scooter. Local laws are constantly changing regarding where riders can legally operate e-scooters. However, if you were struck in the bike lane or on the shoulder of the road, chances are that you were there lawfully, and the driver can be held liable for your damages.

Moped Scooters

A moped is defined as having a maximum speed of 30 miles per hour, and a gas engine no larger than 50cc or an electric motor no stronger than 1,500 watts. Scooters larger than this are classified as motorcycles. Scooters that are classified as motorcycles must be registered, and the rider must have a motorcycle license and insurance, whereas mopeds only require a regular driver’s license, and registration/license plate with the DMV. In either case, whether your scooter is classified as a moped or a motorcycle, you have a right to use the road, and the right to file a personal injury claim if you were injured by another driver. Moreover, even if you did not have the proper licensure or registration for the specific type of scooter you were operating at the time of the crash, you may still be able to seek compensation from the at-fault party.

Call a Columbia Scooter Accident Attorney Today For Help

Before you accept any type of settlement or speak to the other party’s insurance company, we strongly urge you to contact an experienced Columbia scooter accident attorney to inquire about your legal options for fair compensation. If the other party caused the crash, you are likely owed much more than you may think. Reach out to Marc Brown today at (803) 848-0008 to schedule a free consultation today.
