Scooter Accidents in Texas
The rise in scooter accidents has increased since more electronic scooters have become available to the public. Often times negligence causes vehicles to strike scooter riders, especially driving distracted, drunk, or fatigued. If drivers are busy using their cell phones, looking in their rearview mirror to do their makeup, eating, chatting with passengers, or any other distracting behavior, they risk accidentally striking scooter riders. Scooter riders are highly susceptible to sustaining severe, catastrophic, and fatal injuries since their limbs are not protected from the impact of vehicles.
