Users of scooters and other modes of alternative transportation often find themselves disrespected by conventional motorists. Areas with high tourism like Barnstable County on Cape Cod often are “home” to many of these devices which make getting around more efficient.
Unfortunately, many motorists driving cars and trucks fail to properly keep a watch for and yield to operators of scooters and other such modes of transportation. When a person on a scooter is involved in an accident with a motor vehicle, there are many subtle legal issues that need to be addressed. Often times, the scooter operator is assumed to be at fault or the scooter operator does not understand that they may be covered under various insurance policies.
