As a vulnerable road user, many riders of scooters sustain serious injuries in accidents through no fault of their own, in collisions with other road users. Unfortunately, many victims of scooter accidents fail to realise that they are legally entitled to claim personal injury compensation and suffer the symptoms of scooter accidents injuries in silence. Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim to ensure that this doesn’t have to happen to you.
The symptoms of scooter accident injuries
Scooter accident injuries can range in severity and they may include:
- Lacerations and bleeding
- Severe bruising
- Soft tissue injuries such as sprains and whiplash
- Broken or fractured bones particularly the limbs and wrists
- Back injury
- Internal bleeding
- Loss of consciousness
- Serious head injury
- Brain damage.
Unlike broken bones and bleeding, many soft tissue injuries are not always obvious at the scene of a scooter accident. The symptoms of scooter accident injuries may take some time to become apparent. In fact, it may take many hours or even days for the full extent of soft tissue injuries to be diagnosed. Whiplash is a common injury that is caused by the violent movement of the neck as it is flung in a forwards and backwards direction upon impact.
Medical attention should be sought as soon as possible after an accident, either at the scene from a paramedic or at an Accident and Emergency department, to rule out serious trauma.
