    Injuries you could sustain on a mobility scooter

    For some people, a mobility scooter opens up a whole new world of freedom they would not otherwise have. For instance, if someone was ill or had a condition of some kind that prevented them from walking large distances, a mobility scooter could allow them to go out and about more readily than they would otherwise.

    These scooters can be purchased or hired, but in either case you would expect them to be fit for purpose. If you buy one, you will usually have it built to your specifications and have it delivered ready to use. If you hire one, perhaps for the day to go shopping in or to explore a particular destination, you’d expect it to be ready to use and for it to have been checked prior to use, too.

    Can mobility scooters be dangerous?

    The injuries you could sustain on a mobility scooter are usually minor, and they are rare too. However, if it has not been put together properly, or there is something wrong with it, there is an increased chance the injuries you could sustain on a mobility scooter could be more severe. This is particularly true given you may not be agile or fully fit to begin with.

    The question then is who is to blame for causing the injuries. If you were using the scooter properly and as designed, there may be the potential to identify someone else as negligent. Perhaps they did not put the scooter together properly; perhaps some element of it was not properly manufactured in the first place. As you can see, it can be difficult to work out the facts.
