People who ride in an electric scooter or motorized wheelchair will often suffer extremely serious injuries if they are involved in a collision with a car or truck. Unfortunately, as a Dallas-Fort Worth personal injury lawyer, I know that such accidents are a lot more common that you might think. Due to the general poor state of sidewalks (or lack thereof) within the DFW metroplex, it is not uncommon for a scooter user to be forced to travel in the street where they are most at risk. However, even then it is the responsibility of motorists to ensure that they do not crash into them.
Most auto accidents involving a motor vehicle are the fault of the driver – not of the scooter user. Some of the main causes of scooter-versus-automobile crashes include driver distraction, driver intoxication, speeding, or any number of other forms of negligence. However, in many cases the driver at-fault for the wreck usually just didn’t see the scooter just as most car-versus-motorcycle wrecks are caused by the car driver unwittingly “ignoring” the presence of the motorcyclist until it was simply too late.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a Dallas-Fort Worth area auto accident while riding in a scooter or other form of personal mobility device, then it is important that you contact a local Board Certified personal injury and wrongful death lawyer who has experience in handling claims for compensation where the victim was confined to a wheelchair or scooter.
