Scooter Accidents in New York 

Scooter collisions may not be common on our roadways, but they are some of the most catastrophic accidents when they do occur. This is because scooter riders are some of the most vulnerable parties on our roads, especially when much larger vehicles are involved in accidents. In 2018, statistics regarding scooter accidents showed that 32% of individuals involved in these collisions suffered lower extremity injuries, and many suffered from other injuries as well. If your life has been turned upside-down due to a preventable scooter accident, it is important that you understand your legal rights moving forward.

Most scooter accidents are entirely preventable on our roads, especially when other drivers pay close attention to the roads around them. Unfortunately, when drivers engage in reckless behavior, a collision could occur in the blink of an eye. Many serious injuries tend to result from scooter accidents, such as the following:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Organ damage
  • Broken bones
  • Road rash

These injuries sometimes land victims in the hospital or keep them from being able to work. On top of this, they could cause you to miss out on your favorite activities that you once enjoyed before your collision. If you have been hurt in an accident, you should speak with a Queens personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
