Scooter Accident in Beaumont, CA

Beaumont Scooter Accident Lawyer

Lots of Californians are wanting to make environmentally friendly changes in their daily lives. When you merge an eco-friendly change with the chance to reduce and do away with car payments or public transit costs, it's easy to see why scooters are so popular in Beaumont.

Scooter riders should understand their rights on and off the road. If you're curious about your legal options following a scooter accident in Beaumont, you will want to understand a few key points. You can start by calling the Beaumont scooter accident lawyers at Tim D. Wright.

Causes of Beaumont Scooter Accidents

It's impossible to list each and every possible cause for a scooter accident. If you were injured while operating a scooter, contact our Beaumont scooter accident attorneys regardless of the reason (or apparent reason). With that said, the cause of a scooter accident can have an impact on an accident case.

Plenty of things can lead to scooter accidents, including:

  • Doorings-- Doorings occur when a vehicle operator or passenger unknowingly opens their door into an oncoming scooterist.
  • Changing Lanes-- When a motorist changes lanes, they may fail to observe someone riding a scooter, especially since they're operating considerably smaller vehicles than car drivers are-- but changing lanes or swerving has the potential to cause a collision.
  • Failing to yield-- Like pedestrians and bicyclists, scooter riders frequently suffer injuries as a result of a driver failing to yield the right of way. Drivers of passenger vehicles have a tendency to notice other cars and trucks, and occasionally fail to keep a watch for smaller vehicles when driving.

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

No one can tell you, with certainty, who was responsible for your scooter accident prior to knowing all the facts. That's the reason our Beaumont scooter accident attorneys carefully examine our clients' cases.

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

That said, we see these most frequently:

  • Another driver-- Lots of scooterists are struck by other motorists 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 irresponsible drivers cause accidents, hurt scooterists can hold those motorists accountable.
  • The scooter company-- A lot of the general public does not consider this when they consider accident liability, however the scooter company itself could have caused your accident. Scooter companies can neglect the maintenance of their scooters. Some might ignore costly malfunctions or wear issues in favor of keeping scooters in service and making money for them.
  • The city-- Occasionally, 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 problems).

Recouping Damages: What Can Hurt Scooterists Anticipate?

When you bring a case, you do so to collect damages. This compensation should account for the harms (and expenses) 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 makeup exceptional emotional or physical pain due to an accident
  • Loss of wages or earning potential-- Scooter accident victims may temporarily lose their ability to work and earn a wage after their experiences; occasionally, an accident can even permanently affect somebody's earning potential for the remainder of their life. When this happens, scooter accident victims can pursue compensation for lost earning potential in court
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Death

Evidence That May Help Your Claim

Sometimes, Beaumont 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 gather evidence.

If this describes you, do not worry. Our scooter accident lawyers are used to it and commonly need to gather details and evidence later.

It can help your case, however, if you can:

  • Take pictures or videos of the accident scene, your injuries, as well as any other damage
  • Get other motorists' and witnesses' contact information
  • Acquire other motorists' license and insurance information
  • Request a copy of the police report that was filed on-scene
