Why it is critical to document a Bird, Uber or other Scooter accident immediately after an wreck
In recent years, we’ve seen a huge increase in the number of bicyclists, scooter riders, other types of rideshare transportation pop up all over Atlanta. As more people use these alternative methods of transportation, we are seeing that Atlanta and other metropolitan areas are not suited for the operation of these vehicles.
In Atlanta, for example, there are different types of scooters, electric bicycles and regular bicycles located throughout the city. However, these urban areas are not bike or scooter friendly. In fact, operating these rideshare vehicles on our congested roads can be difficult – and dangerous.
If you are injured in an accident involving a scooter or bicycle, you should speak with a lawyer as soon as possible so that they can begin investigating your accident. In personal injury cases, timing is critical to a client’s success – especially in cases involving bikes and scooters.
Once a claim is filed, the insurance company on the other side will begin looking for facts to diminish the value of your claim, or find ways to put the blame on you for the accident. And unlike a car accident, there may be little physical evidence from the vehicles to prove what actually occurred. Your personal injury lawyer should investigate the damage to the car that caused the accident, as well as damage to the scooter or bike, and document it to support your claim for compensation.
