When it comes to accident lawyers there are a number of them which have their own specialty within this area of the law. One particular position which we are seeing more and more lawyers take on, is that of a scooter accident lawyer. The likes of Bird scooter injury attorneys work with clients who have been injured whilst riding public scooters, which can be found in just about every major city in the country. As more lawyers look to specialize in this kind of client, here is exactly why we believe that this rise is happening.
More Scooters On The Road
One of the main reasons why we have seen such a rise in the number of lawyers taking on these cases us that there are so many more scooters on the road. A couple of years ago there were a few companies in therein cities which rented out these scooters, but as they became more popular we saw more and more companies look to jump on the trend, and there aren’t many cities now in which you will not find a large volume of these scooters.
There has been a big pushback from those who use motor vehicles, who consider these scooters to be a nuisance. Now much of this is based on the way in which some users ride the scooter, but a lot of accidents have taken place because of poor driving and not being aware of the presence of a scooter. Most claims which are made by scooter users are against the drivers of motor vehicles.
Severity of the Injuries
Another important point to look at here is the severity of the injuries which are sustained following a collision between a scooter and a motor vehicle. We have to remember that those riding scooters have next to no protection, and it stands to reason that they are going to suffer grave injuries. In the case of smaller injuries in other types of accidents, a lot of people don’t want to claim because they see little point in doing so. Conversely anyone who suffers a major injury after a collision is more likely to claim. Given that most injuries sustained by scooter users are severe, there are many more claims. Owing to this rise in the number of claims, we have a lot more lawyers looking to help out those clients.
The law has been changing little by little in order to offer the right levels of protection to both scooter riders and to motor vehicle users. As the law changes there is more attention on that particular aspect of the law which again is why we are seeing more lawyers look to specialize in this field.
We often see this happen when something becomes popular, and that it predominantly why there are more lawyers looking to work with clients who have been involved in scooter accidents.
