Injured While Riding a Scooter - Findout About Scooter Claims

Scooter-riders are some of the most vulnerable users of the road in BC.

It’s something that we were tragically reminded of just last week when a Delta woman riding a scooter was killed after getting hit by a pickup.

This accident is a grim reminder of the risks faced by scooter-rider.

With higher gas prices and rising insurance premiums riding a scooter has become a very cost effective and popular way of getting around.

So it’s no surprise to see a growing number of people in the Lower Mainland hitting the roads on their scooters.

And unfortunately with more scooters on the roads the number of scooter riders getting hurt in car accidents is growing.

Often these accidents are similar to those involving cyclists and motorcyclists. Careless drivers fail to spot scooter-riders in their blind spot or simply don’t give them the respect they deserve.

And like bikers or motorcyclists people riding a scooter are vulnerable. No seat belts, no air bags, no steel cage to protect them.

As a result accidents involving scooter-riders often cause serious injury and sometimes even death.

But while the dangers faced by scooter riders are similar to those experienced by some other user of the road injury claims involving scooter riders are unique

As such, if you’re going to get fairly compensated for your injuries, you need to understand the issue specific to scooter injury claims.

 If you’re a scooter-rider who’s been hurt in an accident that wasn’t your fault don’t assume that your injury claim should be investigated, prepared and handled in the same manner as a bike or motorcycle injury claim.

It won’t.

You need a personal injury lawyer who’s got the know how to guide you through the specific issues surrounding your scooter injury claim.
