Navigating the Road to Recovery with 50 Years of Defense Insight
Navigating Moped/Scooter/E-Bike Injuries
Mopeds, scooters, and electric bicycles offer convenient and eco-friendly transportation alternatives. Despite their benefits, accidents involving these modes of transport can lead to severe injuries or fatalities, especially when colliding with larger vehicles.
Common Accident Causes
Accidents involving mopeds, scooters, and e-bikes often result from:
- Collisions with other vehicles (cars, trucks, or bicycles).
- Striking or being struck by pedestrians.
- Hazardous road conditions (potholes, debris, or uneven surfaces).
- Mechanical failures or malfunctions.
- Distracted riding or driving under the influence.
Riders of mopeds, scooters, and e-bikes are vulnerable to injuries such as:
- Head injuries and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) due to helmet non-use.
- Fractures and broken bones from impacts.
- Road rash, abrasions, and soft tissue injuries from sliding on the road.
- Facial injuries and dental trauma without proper protective gear.
- Spinal cord injuries leading to paralysis or permanent disabilities.
- Internal injuries from forceful impacts.

Legal Considerations in Oregon
In Oregon, Personal Injury Protection (PIP) is a crucial component providing coverage for medical expenses up to $15,000 and related costs in motor vehicle accidents. PIP benefits, a “no-fault” coverage, apply regardless of fault.
Determining Liability Essential for Just Compensation
Accidents involving mopeds, scooters, and e-bikes require a thorough investigation to determine liability for seeking compensation. If the other driver is at fault, the injured rider may promptly pursue a personal injury claim against the driver’s insurance company, covering medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and related costs.
