Scooter & Vespa Accident Attorneys in New York
Family-Owned Law Firm Since 1956
In and around New York City, scooters and Vespas have increased in popularity. Scooters and Vespas can be a fun way to get around town, beat traffic, and save on the expense of owning a car. They come in a variety of engine sizes, and can reach great speeds. Unfortunately, riders are not afforded the protection of being surrounded by steel, as is true in a car or truck. Injuries in accidents can often be catastrophic and sometimes, result in death. The more serious the injuries, the more expensive treatment can be. Our scooter and Vespa accident attorneys in New York care about our injured clients and have recovered millions in damages.
Causes of Scooter Accidents
Some of the most common causes of scooter accidents include:
- Blind spots
- Speeding / reckless driving
- Inattentive driving
- Poor weather or night driving
- Impaired drivers
- Potholes and road defects
- Doors opened into lanes of traffic
- Low visibility of operators
We proudly serve victims and their families throughout the five boroughs, including New York City, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, and Long Island. While accidents occur all the time, resulting in injuries, we don’t believe you should have to suffer because of another party’s recklessness. Scooter accidents can accrue serious injuries ranging from fractures and sprains, to broken bones, brain trauma, amputations, paralysis, and death. You can trust our family-owned law firm with decades of personal injury successes to help you recover what you’ve lost.
Who Is Going to Pay for My Medical Bills?
Unlike a car or truck, motorcycle and scooter insurance in New York does not provide "no-fault" protection under their policies. When you are involved in a car accident, your insurance company will compensate you for your lost wages and pay for your medical treatment; however, with a scooter, Vespa or motorcycle, this is not the case. A claim must be made against the party that caused your injury in order to be compensated for your injury, medical bills and lost wages.
