Understanding Your Rights and Compensation Options

You can claim for any loss which arises as a direct consequence of the road traffic collision.

Unfortunately, as an e-scooter rider, you're exposed to the risk of serious injury and, if you have been injured, it may take some time for the injuries to heal. The value of your claim for personal injury very much depends upon the type of injury sustained and the recovery you have made or are likely to make.

We can arrange to have you medically examined by a specialist medical expert, who will be able to assess the extent of your injuries and the likely recovery period. In serious injury cases, you can also claim for care needs, future care needs and requirements, as well as alternative or specially adapted accommodation.

Pursuing Compensation for E-Scooter Injuries

If you’ve suffered injury when riding your e-scooter due to the fault of another road user, you may be entitled to claim compensation for loss, injury and damage. To have a personal injury claim, you (or a loved one) must have been injured due to the negligence of another. 

At our first meeting with you, EV Law Scotland will discuss your case in detail, provide sound legal advice on your prospect of success and set out clear options on how best to recover the maximum monetary value of your claim for compensation in the shortest possible time.


Maximizing Compensation for E-Scooter Accident Victims

Once you've given EV Law Scotland the go-ahead, we will submit a claim to the party at fault or their insurance company detailing your case against them and requesting they admit liability. We will consider all the evidence and fully investigate your case. Photographs, eyewitness accounts and police reports will be obtained to assist in establishing liability or fault. We will ask you to undergo a medical examination so we can determine the extent of any injuries or long term damage you may have sustained in the accident. If liability is admitted, we will value your claim based on the injuries sustained, damage to your e-scooter and clothing, any expenses incurred and loss of income.

We will submit our valuation of your claim to your opponent’s insurance company and invite them to make an offer based on our assessment of your claim. When an offer is received, we will provide you with clear advice on whether to accept or reject the offer. If we feel the offer is too low, we will recommend that you raise proceedings in court at no cost or risk to you. If liability is disputed and we consider you have a 50% prospect of success, we will raise proceedings in court which, thanks to our 'no win no fee' policy will be undertaken at no cost or risk to you.

What You Can Claim For

You can claim for any loss which arises as a direct consequence of the incident.

You must prove the loss and you must show the loss is reasonable. We can discuss your case with you and explain what a loss is and what you can claim for. We recognise that injuries will vary in severity and have provided a helpful guide in our Injuries Section.

No Win, No Fee

The Timescales

At EV Law Scotland, we will deal with your claim efficiently, effectively and in the shortest possible time without risking the success of your case or the value of your claim.
