  • We are not intimidated by large insurance companies and their legal teams. If the insurance company does not offer you a fair settlement, we are not afraid to negotiate and take your case to court if needed.
  • We have litigated many personal injury cases, so we know the correct procedures to reach a favorable outcome.

We Fight for Our Clients on a Contingency-Fee Basis

Many scooter accident victims feel hesitant to retain legal representation. That should be the least of your worries when you hire Herschensohn Law. Our personal injury attorneys take cases in exchange for a contingency fee.

Recoverable Damages in a Seattle Scooter Accident Case

Scooter accidents can cause severe injuries. As a result, you could face unexpected financial issues. By filing a case against the liable party, you could seek compensation to recover from your losses.

Examples of recoverable damages in a scooter accident case include the following:

  • The current and future costs of medical care you received to treat your injuries. This category could cover mobility aids, medications, surgeries, hospital stays, diagnostic tests, and emergency and follow-up care.
  • Reimbursement from the income you lost if you missed work while recovering from your injuries. Your injuries could prevent you from working for weeks, months, or even years.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life. If your injuries prevent you from enjoying sports or hobbies you did before your injuries, you could seek compensation for those damages.
  • Pain and suffering. After an injury, you could deal with physical pain or might have developed mental health issues, such as anxiety, sleep problems, or post-traumatic stress disorder.

When you start working with our team, we can review your losses to determine how much compensation to seek in damages. Our attorneys have the tools to calculate the value of your monetary and non-monetary losses. In doing so, we can look at evidence, such as medical bills, wage statements, and other documentation.

Common Causes of Scooter Accidents

Like a car accident, liability in a scooter accident typically falls on the at-fault party or their insurer. Our attorneys first look at the cause of the accident so we can find out who to hold responsible.

Common causes of scooter accidents include:

  • Distracted driving: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) describes distracted driving as any activity that could cause the driver to divert their attention off the road. Examples could include texting, eating, or changing the radio station.
  • Road hazards: Road hazards, such as potholes or uneven lanes, could cause a scooter to flip over. If the municipality in charge of the road does not maintain it, liability could fall on them.
  • Driving under the Influence: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) state that the effects drinking has on driving include difficulty controlling the car, focusing, and processing information. If the driver does not see the scooter rider because of their alcohol impairment, they could cause an accident.
