Local college students suffer serious personal injury

Scooters have become an increasingly popular way for people to travel. Especially in urban areas and college campuses, scooters can be rented, providing an affordable way for people to reach their destination, often saving riders time or a long walk. Georgia drivers in larger vehicles should always remain alert for people on foot, bikes or scooters, because when they don't, victims can suffer serious personal injury.

Recently, two students from the Georgia Southern University were riding a Lime Scooter, a popular brand of electric scooter. Resembling a traditional scooter that a rider would propel with his or her foot, an electric scooter is motorized. By all accounts, the students were operating the scooter safely and had the right-of-way. 

A driver in a larger passenger car became distracted while driving, taking his eyes off the road, looking down. When he returned his attention to the road, it was too late to avoid crashing into the scooter. The victims had to be flown to a hospital for immediate life-saving treatment. Among their injuries are listed brain swelling, broken bones and facial injuries. 

A careless driver who has caused a victim to suffer serious personal injury can be held legally responsible for his or her negligence. Victims may have to face medical bills, inability to attend work or school due to injury, and other pain and suffering through no fault of his or her own. Victims in Georgia may wish to take the opportunity to contact an experienced attorney as they prepare to seek justice against the party who caused them to suffer.
