Are you the victim of a scooter accident? Have you been injured through no fault of your own? Perhaps you are left wondering how you could become involved in a scooter accident when you were only popping to the local shops? Accidents happen when you least expect them and often they are caused by other people’s negligence or lack of care. Accident Advice Helpline is here to ensure that you can start claiming the compensation you deserve if you have been injured in this way.
Scooter accident: Know your legal rights to claim
Have you suffered the symptoms of scooter accident injuries? Unfortunately, accidents involving scooters, motorbikes and cycles have the additional risk of causing serious injuries to the rider and any pillion passengers. Unlike motor vehicles, which offer the driver and passengers the protection of a framework of steel around them, riders are only protected by their personal protective equipment such as a helmet and leathers.
Treating scooter accident injuries promptly at the scene of the accident is so important, as the victim’s condition needs to be stabilised before they are transferred to an Accident and Emergency department for treatment.
The long term effects of being involved in a scooter accident are impossible to predict at the time of any accident. Indeed, many injuries may not even be evident at the scene. Many victims who sustain broken bones or fractures may require surgical intervention to repair the limbs successfully.
Long term rehabilitation involving physiotherapy may be required to ensure that strength and mobility is restored to their limbs. Those victims with head injuries may suffer loss of consciousness and even brain damage which can have long term implications for their future care needs.
