Scooter Accident Attorney in Glendale, CA

Law Offices of Tim D. Wright - Scooter Accident Attorney in Glendale, CA

Lots of Californians are wanting to make environmentally friendly shifts in their daily lives. When you merge a green change with the ability to cut back and eliminate car payments or public transportation costs, it's easy to see why scooters are so popular in Glendale.

Scooter riders need to know their rights on and off the road. If you wonder regarding your legal options after a scooter accident in Glendale, you will want to know a few key points. You can start by calling the Glendale scooter accident attorneys at Tim D. Wright.

Causes of Glendale Scooter Accidents

It's impossible to list every single potential reason for a scooter accident. If you were injured while using a scooter, call our Glendale scooter accident attorneys no matter the cause (or apparent cause). With that said, the cause of a scooter accident can have an effect on an accident case.

A lot of things can lead to scooter accidents, including:

  • Doorings-- Doorings occur when a vehicle driver or passenger unknowingly opens their door into an approaching scooterist.
  • Changing Lanes-- When a motorist changes lanes, they might fail to observe someone riding a scooter, especially given that they're using considerably smaller vehicles than car drivers are-- however changing lanes or swerving has the potential to result in a collision.
  • Failure to yield-- Like pedestrians and bicyclists, scooter riders often sustain injuries because of a driver failing to yield the right of way. Drivers of passenger vehicles have a tendency to detect other cars and trucks, and sometimes fail to keep a lookout for smaller vehicles on the road.

I Was in a Scooter Accident, and I Don't Understand Who to Hold Liable

No one can tell you, with certainty, who was liable for your scooter accident before knowing all the facts. That's the reason our Glendale scooter accident lawyers thoroughly investigate our clients' claims.

However, we find that scooter accident liability has a tendency to come down to one of three common parties. Keep in mind that these are far from the only possible defendants in a scooter accident claim.

That said, we see these most frequently:

  • Another motorist-- A lot of scooterists are struck by other drivers on the road. Whether they were driving a car, a semi-truck, or some kind of specialized vehicle, he or she could be held responsible for your accident. When careless drivers cause accidents, hurt scooterists can hold those motorists responsible.
  • The scooter company-- A great deal of the public doesn't think about this when they consider accident responsibility, however the scooter company itself could have caused your accident. Scooter companies can neglect the maintenance of their scooters. Some might overlook expensive malfunctions or wear issues in favor of keeping scooters in service and making money for them.
  • The city-- In some cases, we can even hold the city responsible for a scooter accident. When this is the case, we can usually trace the accident's cause back to maintenance or defect issues (like a construction hazard or various other road issues).

Recouping Damages: What Can Hurt Scooterists Anticipate?

When you bring a case, you do so to receive damages. This compensation should account for the damages (and also costs) caused by your accident.

Our team, for example, helps scooterists recover damages for:

  • Past, present, and future medical bills-- Including those for emergency transportation, specialized services, custom medical equipment, and more
  • Physical damages-- To your property
  • Pain and suffering-- These damages make up exceptional emotional or physical pain due to an accident
  • Loss of wages or earning potential-- Scooter accident victims might temporarily lose their ability to work and earn a wage after their experiences; sometimes, an accident can even permanently affect someone's earning potential for the rest of their life. When this happens, scooter accident victims can seek compensation for lost earning potential in court
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Death

Evidence That May Help Your Case

Sometimes, Glendale scooter accident victims can document some evidence at the scene of the accident. This is not always the case: A lot of accident survivors are too seriously injured to collect evidence.

If this describes you, do not worry. Our scooter accident attorneys are used to it and often need to collect details and evidence later.

It could help your claim, however, if you can:

  • Take photos or videos of the accident scene, your injuries, as well as any other damages
  • Get other motorists' and witnesses' contact information
  • Get other motorists' license and insurance details
  • Ask for a copy of the police report that was filed on-scene
