SCOOTER & VESPA ACCIDENTS
In and around New York City, scooters and Vespas have increased in popularity. Scooters and Vespas can be a fun way to get around town, beat traffic, and save on the expense of owning a car. They come in a variety of engine sizes, and can reach great speeds. Unfortunately, riders are not afforded the protection of being surrounded by steel, as is true in a car or truck. Some of the most common causes of scooter accidents include: Blind spots, speeding / reckless driving, Inattentive driving, doors opened into lanes of traffic and poor weather or night driving.
This is one of the reasons why you must contact a legal professional after you have suffered an accident that was not your fault.

For 19 years, our firm has been representing clients facing all types of personal injury and accident cases.
We firmly believe that anyone who operates a motor vehicle is expected to exercise reasonable care and caution. A failure to do so is negligence. If a driver’s negligence, inattentiveness, inexperience, criminal actions or failure to act in turn causes an accident resulting in serious injury or death, the driver needs to be held accountable for their actions.
Protecting Your Rights – The Law Firm of Steven I. Fried, P.C.
After a car accident, you will have to deal with your insurance company. After you file a car accident insurance claim through your auto insurance provider, an adjuster will likely be assigned to your case. This adjuster is responsible for determining your percentage of fault as well as determining the financial amount of damages you may be entitled to. These damages will go toward remediating repair costs, medical bills and property losses (if applicable). An adjuster will also be assigned to the other driver’s case. What can happen is that, in an attempt to settle for a low amount, you may be offered a quick settlement. Without the help of a skilled car accident attorney, you may not know what type of settlement offer you should accept. At The Law Firm of Steven I. Fried, P.C., we are prepared to handle these and other issues for clients.
