Gwinnett County is a rapidly growing, which has led to new roads being created and more drivers who are unfamiliar with local traffic. Finding one’s way around the county can be a challenge and make drivers even less aware of those on motor scooters.

If you were involved in a Vespa collision, you could benefit from speaking with a Gwinnett County motor scooter accident lawyer. A well-practiced attorney knows the specific risks of motor scooters and could determine appropriate compensation for your injuries.

Recoverable Damages in Vespa Accident Cases

Gwinnett County roads are more dangerous for motor scooters and Vespas than roads in rural areas due to the higher population density. Accidents occur frequently, and there is heavy construction along many major roads, which increases the probability that someone may act negligently and put others at risk of harm.

Common injuries that arise from motor scooter or Vespa accidents are similar to those seen in motorcycle wrecks. An individual involved in an accident while on a motor scooter may sustain cuts, bruises, lacerations, head injuries, broken bones, and spinal damage. Additionally, because motor scooter riders have little in the way of protection against the impact of a car, these accidents can result in catastrophic injuries.

In Gwinnett County, a dedicated attorney could help someone in a motor scooter crash recover damages for their injuries. These may include out-of-pocket expenses, such as past and future medical bills, and lost wages if a plaintiff must take time off work to recover. A plaintiff also could seek compensation for any pain and suffering and property damage caused by a collision.

Unique Aspects of Motor Scooter Wreck Claims

Gwinnett County traffic laws have certain requirements for motor scooters. For example, these vehicles cannot be operated down sidewalks, and most cannot exceed speeds of approximately 30 miles per hour.

While Vespas are similar to motorcycles because both types of rides are vulnerable to bodily harm, an individual does not need a special license for a motor scooter. This means individuals are not required to take additional, which results in anyone having access to them and potentially more accidents.

This could alter the defense’s strategy. For example, if there is a speed limit on the motor scooter, the defense could argue that the injured party was driving faster than what the law allows. The defense may make a contributory negligence argument to have the damages reduced. A knowledgeable Gwinnett County attorney has the experience needed to build a strong case against the person responsible for a motor scooter crash.

Reach out to a Gwinnett County Motor Scooter Accident Attorney

A Gwinnett County motor scooter accident lawyer could help you by collecting evidence, talking to witnesses, reading the police report, and reviewing any video footage. Additionally, a seasoned lawyer could determine who was at fault, whether there is any contributory negligence, and assess the damages to the injured individual. For help building your injury claim, schedule an initial case consultation today.
