Now more than ever, mopeds and scooters are a popular form of transportation. Florida makes this even more prevalent due to rising gas prices and a climate enjoyable for using them year-round as a mode of transportation.
Scooters see the same issues that motorcycle accidents do because they are often missed from a driver’s view. Just as many motorists fail to see a motorcyclist when merging, switching lanes or pulling out from a driveway or intersection, they also tend to miss individuals driving scooters or mopeds.
Since scooters are so much smaller than other motor vehicles, people who drive scooters often experience significant injuries as a result of an accident. If you or someone you know has been the victim of a scooter or moped accident, we encourage you to seek legal representation. The injury attorneys at the law firm of Heintz & Becker are board-certified civil trial lawyers, skilled at handling these cases and helping you get the results you deserve.

Many different types of motor vehicles share our roadways with us these days.

In some events these incidents can leave many with catastrophic injuries leading to lifelong pain and suffering for the injured themselves and their families. Once the basic attention is given to the injured, assuming you walk away with non-life-threatening conditions, you will undoubtedly have medical bills mounting up, and in most cases lose time from work, making paying them even harder.
