Mausner Graham Scooter Accident Law Firm in Miami, Florida
Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer If I Have Been Injured in a Scooter Accident?
With the introduction of e-scooters and rideshare scooters to large cities such as Miami, more and more accidents stemming from the use of these vehicles are being reported. Although formal reports are difficult to find, some initial research shows that over 1,500 e-scooter-related injuries were treated in emergency rooms in 2019 alone.
Because most e-scooters or rideshare scooters are owned by massive corporations with immense resources, getting fair compensation for being injured while using a scooter can be an arduous task. With the help of a reputable legal team, you will be able to compile a stronger case with supporting testimony from expert witnesses and medical practitioners (who can testify to the extent of the injuries, the likelihood of recovery, and the financial as well as psychological damages that can result from scooter accidents).
Your legal representatives can also help you to collect, compile and provide compelling evidence to prove negligence or liability, which can result in a larger settlement or claim awarded by the court.
We have successfully represented clients in various personal injury cases, including rideshare scooter accidents.
Likely Causes Of Scooter Accidents
Because scooters are often used in big, busy cities, injuries can be caused by the negligence of other drivers or pedestrians. The rental companies that own the rideshare scooters can often be at fault due to a lack of maintenance of their vehicles, which can cause severe injuries and damage to their customers.
What Steps Should I Take If I Am Involved in a Scooter Accident?
It is important to retain legal counsel immediately. You need to provide your legal team with all the relevant documentation and information, including medical bills, accident reports, photographs of the injury or after-effects of the injuries, as well as contact information for any possible witnesses. Seek medical attention (even if you don’t think you have sustained serious injuries), and file a police report as soon as possible.
It is important to never admit fault and not provide any insurance companies or rideshare company representatives with statements before consulting with your legal advisor.
Your legal team will research all the relevant aspects and advise you on all possible legal options. They will prepare your case to be heard in court if this is necessary and may even possibly advise you to settle out of court if the service provider is offering reasonable compensation for your injuries.
