Beaumont Scooter Accident Attorney

Tons of Texans are trying to make eco-friendly shifts in their everyday lives. When you combine a green change with the ability to downsize and do away with car payments or public transportation costs, it's easy to see why scooters are so popular in Beaumont.

Scooter riders need to understand their rights on and off the street. If you wonder about your legal options after a scooter accident in Beaumont, you will want to understand a few key points. You can start by calling the Beaumont scooter accident attorneys at Dunk Law Firm.

Causes of Beaumont Scooter Accidents

It's impossible to list every single possible cause for a scooter accident. If you were hurt while operating a scooter, contact our Beaumont scooter accident lawyers no matter the cause (or apparent reason). With that said, the reason for a scooter accident can have an effect on an accident claim.

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 somebody riding a scooter, especially since they're operating much smaller vehicles than car drivers are-- however changing lanes or swerving has the potential to lead to a collision.
  • Failure to yield-- Like pedestrians and bicyclists, scooter riders usually suffer injuries because of a motorist failing to yield the right of way. Motorists of passenger vehicles tend to notice other cars and trucks, and sometimes 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

Nobody can tell you, with certainty, who was responsible for your scooter accident before knowing all the facts. That's the reason our Beaumont scooter accident attorneys thoroughly investigate our clients' cases.

Nevertheless, we find that scooter accident responsibility tends to come down to one of three common parties. Keep in mind that these are far from the only potential defendants in a scooter accident case.

That said, we see these most frequently:

  • Another driver-- Many scooterists are struck by other drivers on the road. Whether they were driving a sedan, a semi-truck, or some sort of specialized vehicle, they could be held accountable for your accident. When careless motorists cause accidents, hurt scooterists can hold those motorists responsible.
  • The scooter company-- A great deal of the public doesn't think of 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 may disregard costly malfunctions or wear problems in favor of keeping scooters in service and generating income 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 often trace the accident's cause back to maintenance or defect issues (like a construction hazard or other road problems).

Recouping Damages: What Can Injured Scooterists Anticipate?

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

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

  • Past, present, and future medical expenses-- Including those for emergency transport, specialized services, custom medical equipment, and more
  • Physical damages-- To your property
  • Pain and suffering-- These damages account for exceptional emotional or physical pain caused by an accident
  • Loss of income or earning potential-- Scooter accident victims may temporarily lose their ability to work and earn a wage after their experiences; in some cases, an accident can even permanently alter someone's earning potential for the remainder of their life. When this happens, scooter accident victims can seek compensation for lost earning potential in court
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Death

Evidence That May Benefit Your Case

In some cases, Beaumont scooter accident victims can record some evidence at the scene of the crash. This is not always the case: Lots of crash survivors are too seriously hurt to collect evidence.

If this describes you, do not worry. Our scooter accident lawyers are used to it and often have to collect information and evidence later.

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

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