REPAIRS & REPLACEMENTS
Can you arrange for my scooter to be repaired or a replacement scooter?
We will act on your behalf to recover compensation not only for your injuries but also for your out of pocket expenses including damaged scooter and kit.
We understand how important it is to you to have your scooter repaired or replaced as quickly as possible.
Our lawyers will work to secure interim payments to cover the cost of:
- Repairing or replacing your scooter, including any customizations unique to your scooter.
- Replacing any extra equipment (including clothing) damaged during the accident.
We recognize how important scooter riding is to you and we work to make the process of getting you and your scooter back on the road as quickly and as stress-free as possible.
Scooter are often badly damaged following an accident, especially if the accident involved another vehicle. Your scooter may no longer be road-worthy. We can make arrangements for your scooter to be inspected and assessed by a specialist engineer. If the scooter is repairable we can make the arrangements and recover the cost from the other side’s insurers. If the scooter is beyond economical repair then we can seek to recover the cost of a replacement from the insurers.
If repairs are to be carried out we will ensure that these are carried out to the highest standard. If your scooter has to be replaced this will be with a scooter model with the same specifications. If you prefer you can appoint your own local specialist scooter shop to prepare a report and quote for repairs/replacement and we will request payment from the insurers so that you can proceed.
As many of our lawyers are keen scootering we are aware of the importance of obtaining an early interim payment from the insurers so that you can return to scootering as soon as possible.
When you’re in a safe place to do so, call us. In addition to details about your personal injury, we’ll also ask you about your scooter.
If your scooter can be repaired, we’ll need quotes or receipts to support your case. If the repair costs are:
Less than what the scooter is worth
You can claim the entire costs of the repair (back to its original state, without enhancements e.g. a bell if there wasn’t one before).
More than what the scooter is worth
You can claim the total cost of the repair or whatever the scooter was worth prior to the accident. Your local scooter repair shop can give you a valuation as to your scooter’s value.
