Gainesville Scooter Accidents Attorney

Gainesville Scooter Accidents Attorney


Have you or a loved one been injured or killed in a scooter accident?

If so, you may be entitled to financial restitution. High gas prices have contributed to the scooter's recent increase in popularity, especially among college students in Gainesville looking for something that is easy to ride as well as convenient to park. Unfortunately, operating any low-speed vehicle on city streets and roadways can be dangerous. Unlike motorcycles that can keep pace with the flow of traffic, scooters are generally much slower, not as noisy and often more difficult for a driver to see. For victims who are new to riding one, it can be difficult to identify the cause of a crash or to know who may be responsible for damages. Our lawyers will work closely with you to analyze exactly what happened and decide whether or not it is in your best interest to file a personal injury lawsuit.

At Schackow & Mercadante, our legal team represents victims of moped and scooter injuries caused by:

  • Failure to Yield Right of Way
  • Dangerous Road Conditions
  • Inattentive or Distracted Driver
  • Faulty Design or Defective Parts
  • Speeding or Reckless Driving by Another
  • Motorist Driving Under the Influence

 

Determining Causation and Costs of Scooter Crashes

More often than not, the other driver is at fault in scooter collisions. However, there are numerous situations where another party may be accountable, such as the manufacturer, the designer of safety equipment or the government agency in charge of maintaining the road. If you were injured while riding a moped or scooter, our scooter crash lawyers will work diligently with in-house investigators to collect evidence, examine failed components, interview witnesses and reconstruct the events that lead to the cause of your crash. Then, we will document and quantify the damages for compensation of medical expenses, hospital bills, lost income, pain and suffering, future healthcare costs and any lasting disabilities.
