Liability In San Diego Scooter Accidents

All drivers have a legal obligation to exercise due care in order to avoid hitting scooterists and other pedestrians. According to California Vehicle Code 21200, “A person riding a bicycle or operating a pedicab upon a highway has all the rights and is subject to all the provisions applicable to the driver of a vehicle by this division, including, but not limited to, provisions concerning driving under the influence of alcoholic beverages or drugs, and by Division 10.” There are number of common causes of motorcycle accidents including:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Driver fatigue
  • Prescription drug use
  • Inclement weather

The family of any victim that died in a scooter accident may be able to seek justice through a wrongful death claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and funeral expenses. It is extremely important that evidence is properly preserved and protected after an accident. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
