As most people are aware, if they are involved in an accident with a motor vehicle in which the accident is the fault of the other driver or is the result of poor or negligent driving on their behalf, the injured party has the right to make a claim for compensation. They can do this by contacting Harrogate no win no fee solicitors.
The reason for compensation in this situation is because whenever a person gets behind the wheel of a vehicle, be it a car, van, bus or lorry, they have a responsibility to manage the health and safety of themselves, other road users, passengers and pedestrians. This is known as a duty of care and should they fail in their duty of care then any person who has suffered an injury as a result can contact Harrogate ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors to seek compensation for those injuries.
Like a Bat out of Hell
Mobility scooters are a recent, and in the majority of cases, extremely necessary phenomenon helping to transport people who might otherwise be stuck in their homes or reliant upon other people to have a little independence.
Whether they’re looking for a way of getting to the shops, their place of work or to socialise, a mobility scooter can ensure that a person who is physically incapable of making their own way independently is able to do so with their dignity intact.
For the most part, the people who operate these scooters do so sensibly and are fully aware of their surroundings as they do so. However, there are others who fail to take adequate care of themselves and others, can fail to spot a hazard or can forget the old adage that objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are, and accidents can occur easily and without warning. In this event, Harrogate ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors can seek compensation for any injuries which occur.
Of course, mobility scooters move quite slowly but their weight, together with the weight of their passenger can mean that even a small bump can cause a major injury. Whether you were knocked over or into by a scooter or one made contact with your vehicle, you could still receive severe injuries.
