What causes moped accidents?
One of the first things we’ll ask you about your accident is what you think the cause was, Some victims know exactly what happened in their accident while others are unsure. Even if you don’t know the exact cause of your accident, we can help you figure it out. In most accidents, mopeds are hit by other vehicles. Since mopeds are so small, they can be difficult to see on the road. So, it’s easy for a car to miss a moped that is in their blind spot. Cars have a difficult time watching out for motorcycles, and mopeds are even smaller. Some of the reasons that a moped accident occurs are because drivers are:
- Driving too fast for conditions
