Below are some frequently asked questions about mopeds:
- Why are moped riders prone to severe injury in accidents? Mopeds do not offer any of the protections that larger, enclosed vehicles provide. Mopeds are considerably smaller and lighter than other vehicles. As a result, when an accident occurs, there is nothing protecting the rider from the impact of the collision. Additionally, mopeds are unable to compete with the engine capacity of other larger vehicles on the road. Even the most vigilant riders are left defenseless against negligent motorists.
- What are the most common moped collision-related injuries? At low speeds, riders may only suffer cuts and bruises. Nevertheless, sometimes crashes are more serious, and the resulting injuries can be devastating, permanent, and even fatal. Some of the most common injuries typically reported in moped crashes include lacerations, road rash, severe nerve damage, soft tissue damage, internal organ injuries, fractured and broken bones, neck injuries, head injuries, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), disfigurement, and total paralysis.
- What are some safety measures that you can take to avoid crashing? It is important to always remain cautious of your surroundings and drive defensively. Moreover, getting sufficient practice riding, going slower down steep hills, wearing a helmet and proper safety gear, not wearing headphones, staying in your lane, and following traffic laws can all help avoid unnecessary accidents.
- What type of factors could affect the value of my moped injury claim? The most significant factors in determining the value of your case are the specific nature of your injuries, how long recovery is expected to take, and economic losses suffered. Full compensation for all economic and non-economic losses through a personal injury lawsuit may include compensation for moped repair costs, lost wages from missed work, diminished future earning capacity, both past and future treatment expenses for all injuries, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment, and permanent disabilities suffered.
- Weeks after my moped accident, the other driver’s insurance company presented a settlement offer. Should I accept it? You should never agree to take an insurance company’s settlement offer, without first consulting with an experienced personal injury lawyer. Most insurance companies try to make swift lowball offers in an attempt to make valid claims disappear. Once you accept an insurance company’s settlement offer you are unable to receive more if your injuries turn out to be more serious than you initially thought. Your inability to perform at work, the need for future surgeries and treatment, and any further complications that may arise could greatly increase your actual damages.
- I have not been working since my moped accident. How can I possibly afford to hire an attorney? There are never any up-front costs or out-of-pocket expenses to retain the legal services of the Dietrich Law Firm P.C.’s qualified moped crash attorneys. Our best of the best team will only seek a fee after your case is settled or after a verdict in your trial.
