The Aftermath of a Scooter or Moped Crash in Atlanta

Let's assume you have already received medical attention and filed a police report. Don't forget to also receive a medical report from your treating physician. Any documents that are related to the incident can act as valuable supporting evidence for your claim.

If the opposing insurance company contacts you, do not speak to the adjuster, no matter what they say or demand. Have a trusted Atlanta auto accident lawyer speak to them in your stead. He or she will ensure your claim is protected from the insurance company's attempts to reduce its worth. Also, do not sign anything unless you receive your attorney's approval.

Scooter and Moped Laws in Georgia

The state of Georgia defines a moped as a vehicle that has an engine no larger than 50cc, cannot go faster than 30 miles per hour and does not require clutching or shifting. Mopeds are restricted to roads with speed limits no more than 35 miles per hour. Needless to say, they cannot be ridden on limited-access highways. Operators must be at least 15 years old and have a valid driver's license, instructional permit or limited permit. Helmet usage is also required.

Vehicles classified as motor scooters have engines of more than 50cc, are capable of speeds greater than 30 miles per hour and are designed for highway use. They are subject to the same laws and regulations as motorcycles.

Common Causes of Scooter and Moped Accidents

Similar to motorcycles and bicycles, scooters and mopeds are difficult to spot on the road. Motorists who collide into riders often say they did not see the victim. However, negligence is no excuse.

Some of the most common motorist errors behind scooter and moped accidents include the following:

Scooter and moped riders are completely exposed to the elements, placing them at risk for injuries such as road rash, broken bones, and lacerations. They have no metal cage around them. This is why scooter and moped accidents are often devastating in nature, and why motorists should regard any riders they see on the road with special care.
