Woman on scooter has personal injury after drunk driver hits her

There are constant dangers when out on the road in Reno in any capacity. However, pedestrians, bicyclists, people on scooters and motorcyclists face inherent risk when they are sharing the road with other people. Because they are so vulnerable, being in a crash can cause severe personal injury and even lead to death. This is made worse when there are people under the influence out on the road. After an accident, those who were hurt or lost a loved one need to make sure they understand the ramifications of the incident and protect themselves with a qualified legal professional.

An accident between a car and a scooter led to the woman on the scooter being injured. The accident occurred at approximately noon when law enforcement and emergency personnel were called to the scene of a crash. According to the investigation, the female driver of a vehicle was under the influence when she hit a 55-year-old woman who was riding a scooter. The woman on the scooter was taken to the hospital with injuries. They are not believed to be life-threatening. The driver of the vehicle was placed under arrest for DUI.

No one heads out and believes they are going to be in an accident and suffer injuries. Unfortunately, it happens every day and is often without warning to people who are simply minding their own business. Suddenly, they are faced with medical costs, the inability to work, the possibility that they will have permanent damage, and even a fatality. This is especially problematic when it is a person on a bicycle or a scooter who is the victim. When hit by a vehicle, the lack of protection can result in major personal injury and a radically changed life. After such an accident, having legal assistance is crucial.

A driver who was arrested for DUI crashed into a woman on a scooter and sent her to the hospital. Although the hospitalized woman's injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, that does not mean she will not have problems in the aftermath of the crash. Having legal assistance is a vital part of getting adequate compensation for all that was lost. A law firm that has experience in a variety of personal injury cases can help with a case and should be contacted immediately.
