MOTOR SCOOTER ELECTRIC BIKE HIT BY CAR ACCIDENT – MN INJURY LAWYERS
If a motor scooter is hit by a car the injuries to the rider can be serious. Our lawyers have represented many motor scooter and motorcycle accident victims because of an accident with a car. A motor scooter or electric bike is small enough that a car not paying attention can easily not see it. Also, because the motor scooter is smaller than a motorcycle, the car often misjudges how fast the motor scooter is going.
If you are hit by a car while driving a motor scooter, you may have access to auto insurance through your own car, even if you are at fault in causing the accident. This is different than a motorcycle because a motor scooter may have a small enough engine to avoid the No-Fault exclusion for motorcycles in Minnesota law.
If the car is at fault in causing an accident with a motorcycle, the driver’s auto insurance must pay compensation to to the motor scooter rider. Compensation for a motor scooter accident could include medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering, plus repair or replacement of the motor scooter.
Proving fault and understanding the insurance issues, including the medical issues, can by complicating.
