If you or a loved one was injured while riding a scooter, our Springfield personal injury lawyer will identify the at-fault party and seek full compensation for your damages. We will also deal with the involved insurance company, so you can focus on getting better.

Our Law Firm Pursues Compensation After Springfield Scooter Accidents

- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Past and future lost wages
- Physical pain and suffering
- Disability and disfigurement
- Loss of future earning ability
- Past and future medical expenses
- Property damage or total loss
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Out-of-pocket expenses

You Have a Short Time to Pursue Scooter Accident Damages
According to Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10, you generally have two years to file your personal injury lawsuit. Similarly, Ohio Revised Code Section 2125.02 generally gives you two years to file your wrongful death lawsuit.
The filing deadline can be difficult to determine on your own. Our legal team will help you avoid the costly consequences of filing your lawsuit too late. Waiting too long to initiate your legal case could cost you the right to seek fair compensation altogether.
We will investigate any circumstances that might toll or pause the filing deadline. From the moment you hire our team, we work to preserve your legal rights and take care of all obligations before time runs out.

How We Prove Negligence Caused Your Springfield, Ohio, Scooter Accident
When we pursue the at-fault party in your scooter accident case, we start by proving they were negligent. That means proving they owed you a duty of care and failed to provide it. It also means proving their action caused your accident and that your accident had financial consequences.
To prove negligence and to document the cost of your requested compensation, we include the following items in your case file:
- The police report
- Injury photos
- Proof of income
- Accident scene photos
- First responder reports
- Accident reconstruction data
- Eyewitness statements
- Medical records and bills
We will not ask you or your family to track down or order evidence. Instead, we compile your evidence from all available sources. Our team will even consult the experts your case needs and work with them to prepare written statements or testimonies.
Springfield Scooter Accidents Our Personal Injury Law Firm Manages
Scooters can be hard to spot if motor vehicle drivers are not vigilant. Our team represents scooter occupants who were injured in the following ways:
- In a collision with a car caused by the distraction, fatigue, drug or alcohol intoxication, or any other form of negligence on the vehicle driver’s part
- In a collision with a pedestrian or other passerby who was distracted by a smartphone, another pedestrian, or while walking in the scooter’s path
- In a collision caused by a manufacturing or design defect on the scooter, which caused a sudden stop and resulted in serious injuries
Our law firm will investigate every possible cause of your accident and identify all potentially liable parties. We will have the scooter inspected if a malfunction is suspected and examine your crash report for additional factors that prove the accident’s causes and contributing factors.
Our Attorneys Advocate for Claimants With These Conditions

- Stiff and sore muscles
- Traumatic brain injuries

- Deep lacerations and blood loss

We will collect medical records and a written prognosis from every healthcare facility where you were treated. These documents will prove the extent of your injury, describe your treatment protocol, and determine known and anticipated costs.
