Frequent Types of Scooter Accidents
It is hard to predict all the different scooter accidents that can occur, but below is a list of some of the more common kinds our experienced attorneys in Oklahoma City have handled:
- A distracted or intoxicated automobile driver veers off into the bike line and hits a scooter rider
- A scooter rider is driving in the car lane instead of the bike lane and gets hit by an aggressive driver
- An unfamiliar rider underestimates the actual speed and power of scooters. This misjudgment can result in the rider colliding with pedestrians or other vehicles
Anyone injured in a scooter accident should immediately seek medical attention. Then, after receiving appropriate medical care, they should contact a diligent Oklahoma City scooter injury attorney for help pursuing the comprehensive compensation they need and deserve from the person who caused them harm.
Collecting Monetary Damages Following a Scooter Crash
Scooters are fast but offer less protection than most other vehicles. They also pack enough force to seriously injure pedestrians and drivers, which can result in fatal injuries. Family members who lost a loved one while they were riding a scooter at work may have the right to file a death benefit claim. The person can be a surviving spouse, child, or a secondary beneficiary if there are no primary beneficiaries.
Moderately and seriously injured individuals can file a personal injury lawsuit following a scooter collision. Our team at AMA Law is full of creative problem solvers who could help injured parties pursue the fair case outcome they deserve. A proactive scooter accident lawyer in Oklahoma City could help injured individuals or their families demonstrate that another party is primarily to blame for the crash and should be held financially liable.
