TOP Frequently Asked Questions
What is comparative negligence?
Comparative negligence is a rule to determine compensation when both the scooterist and a driver are at fault. That rule requires a comparison of fault. For example, if a driver was 80 percent at fault and a scooterist was 20 percent at fault, the scooterist is entitled to recover 80 percent of his or her damages.
How do I get compensation for my scooter accident?
If you were injured in a collision with a driver, make sure the police prepare an accident report. The driver should provide you with his or her insurance information, but, if not, the driver will need to give that information to the police.
Are settlements final?
If you accept a settlement and realize later that your injuries are permanent or more extensive than you thought they would be, you cannot go back to the insurance company and ask for more money.
Where can I find a scooter accident settlement calculator?
Settlements depend on a variety of factors. A few factors, like financial loss, can be easily calculated in some cases, although they might be disputed in others. Some factors, including comparative fault, involve a judgment call that does not lend itself to a precise formula. Other factors, like the degree of pain an accident victim suffered, cannot be calculated mathematically.
