Moped AccidentMopeds have become one of the hottest transportation trends in metropolitan areas throughout the country. These vehicles are fun, affordable, and they allow users to reduce their carbon footprint. Mopeds provide the freedom to move through traffic relatively easily and drastically cut down on commuting times. No wonder a rapidly increasing number of commuters have started riding mopeds. Nevertheless, mopeds pose serious dangers to riders and others on the road. Mopeds are substantially smaller and lighter than most other vehicles. Such vehicles cannot compete with the larger vehicles on the road. Mopeds provide almost no protection between riders and the impact of a collision, which leaves them far more susceptible to suffering serious injuries. The increase in moped use has considerably increased the number of associated injuries and fatalities. Even the most cautious riders are among the most vulnerable motorists on the road, especially when negligent motorists fail to uphold their duty of care.

Common Causes of Moped Accidents

Moped riders are defenseless against negligent and careless motorists. Numerous factors can lead to moped accidents, and it is extremely beneficial for all riders to be mindful of these causes to reduce their vulnerabilities to these dangers. The most common causes of moped accidents include:

  1. Speeding;
  2. Other motorists failing to see riders;
  3. Inattentive or distracted driving;
  4. Riding during bad weather conditions;
  5. Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
  6. Inadequately lit or damaged roads;
  7. Inexperienced moped drivers; and
  8. Improper traffic maneuvers.

Besides the above common causes, when you are riding around, it is crucial to recognize that mopeds can be difficult for other motorists to see due to their small physical profile. Even when other motorists see a moped, they may still miscalculate its distance and speed. Whenever you are on a moped, you must accept your evident safety disadvantage and ride with caution.

Typical Injuries Suffered in Moped Accidents

Moped Accidents While mopeds may seem like an excellent way to get around, they lack any surrounding protection in case of a crash. With only minimal protection, moped crashes often involve severe, permanent, and devastating injuries for riders. Some injuries frequently suffered by moped users include:

  1. Facial and craniofacial injuries;
  2. Lacerations and road rash;
  3. Fractured and broken bones;
  4. Nerve damage;
  5. Soft tissue damage;
  6. Internal organ damage from trauma;
  7. Spinal cord injuries, including total paralysis;
  8. Amputation of hands, arms, legs, or feet;
  9. Traumatic brain injury (TBI);
  10. Severe disfigurement;
  11. Permanent disability; and
  12. Death.

It is crucial for anyone involved in a serious moped crash to seek immediate medical attention for further assessment. The injuries above may require various treatments such as surgery, specialized doctors, or rehabilitative physical therapy to restore your health.

Compensation for Victims of Moped Accidents

Victims of moped accidents may be required to stay in the hospital for days or even weeks, instead of being able to work.

Victims can pursue recovery for damages through a personal injury lawsuit, which may include compensation for:

  1. Moped repair or replacement costs;
  2. Lost income from missed work;
  3. Reduced future earning capacity;
