Common Types of Scooter Accidents

Scooter accidents come in various forms, each presenting its own set of challenges. Common types of scooter accidents include:

Collisions with Motor Vehicles: Accidents involving scooters and motor vehicles, such as cars, trucks, or motorcycles, are unfortunately common. Liability in these cases often hinges on factors like traffic laws, road conditions, and driver negligence.

Pedestrian Collisions: Scooter riders can collide with pedestrians, leading to injuries for both parties. Determining liability in such cases may involve issues of negligence and right-of-way.

Single-Rider Accidents: Sometimes, scooter riders can lose control and crash due to factors like poor road conditions, defective scooters, or rider error. Liability in these cases may be more complex, requiring a thorough investigation.

Rider vs. Rider Accidents: When two scooter riders collide, liability can be challenging to determine. Factors like speed, reckless behavior, and adherence to traffic rules may play a role.

Determining Liability in Scooter Accidents

Determining liability in scooter accidents can be complex and often requires a detailed investigation. Factors like traffic laws, witness statements, surveillance footage, and accident reconstruction may all contribute to establishing fault. Our experienced attorneys at Fielding Law will diligently investigate your case to determine liability and build a strong legal strategy.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Fielding in the past, and I cannot recommend him and his team enough. They're true professionals from intake to close outs, and will make sure a difficult process goes as smoothly as possible. All-around great guy and one heck of an attorney.

Mia

As a fellow Arizona attorney, my interactions with Fielding Law was top notch. Both attorneys and support staff were friendly and helpful. Plus, their office in Tempe is brand new and very cool.

It was great to have Clark and his team in our corner. We were t-boned by someone that ran a red light. However, while we were being taken to the hospital, the other driver told the police that it was our fault. With things not looking good, Clark was able to get our side of the story reported to the police, deal with all the doctors and insurance people and get us a settlement. They went above and beyond what we thought was possible. Can’t imagine dealing with this nightmare without Clark and his team.
