It is not clear how this terrible accident happened. Accidents involving scooters and bicycles at night can be tricky from a liability perspective and quickly securing evidence from the accident scene can make the difference in determining who is at fault. In cases similar to this, our firm will typically send an accident engineer to the accident scene to take detailed measurements of all of the physical evidence and photograph and roadway markings that may be related to the accident. Using well-established engineering principals, we can often determine how the accident happened and who was at fault.
