Liability In Highland Car Accidents
The rise of companies like Bird and Lime has come with a sharp increase in the popularity of electric and gas scooters. But this rise has also come with an increase in the number of scooter accidents. Many collisions occur when drivers make dangerous left turns. Drivers are supposed to yield the right of way to vehicles and pedestrians close enough so as to pose a hazard. Victims of scooter accidents tend to suffer very serious injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Organ damage
When a driver is negligent and strikes a pedestrian they can be held accountable through a civil claim. The family of any victim that died in a car 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 pain and suffering. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
