      Most Common Injuries

      Understanding some key information about scooter accidents can provide insight into the prevalence and severity of these incidents. Here are some statistics to be aware of

      Fractures and sprains: Scooter accidents often lead to fractures and sprains, particularly in the hands, wrists, and ankles. These injuries can be caused by falls or collisions.

      Head injuries: These are a significant concern in scooter accidents, especially when riders fail to wear helmets. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and concussions can occur due to the impact of a fall or collision.

      Cuts, abrasions, and road rash: When riders are thrown off a scooter, they may suffer cuts, abrasions, and road rash. These injuries can be painful and may require medical attention to prevent infection and promote proper healing.

      Soft tissue injuries: Scooter accidents can result in sprains, strains, and contusions. These injuries can cause pain, swelling, and limited mobility.

      How to Proceed When Involved or Hurt in a Scooter Accident 

      If you find yourself involved or hurt in a scooter accident, taking specific steps to protect yourself legally and physically is crucial. Here’s what you should do:

      Seek medical attention:

      Your health and well-being should be the top priority. Even if you believe your injuries are minor, seeking medical evaluation to identify any hidden injuries or complications is important.

      Document the accident

      Take photos of the accident scene, including the location, any property damage, and your injuries. If possible, gather witness contact information who can provide statements regarding the incident.

      Report the accident:

      Contact the appropriate authorities, such as the police or local law enforcement, to report the accident. Provide them with accurate details about the incident, and obtain a copy of the accident report.

      Preserve evidence:

      Keep any evidence related to the accident, such as damaged personal belongings or clothing. This evidence can support your claim if you seek compensation for your injuries.
