If moped drivers practice safe driving habits and vehicle owners share roads responsibly, a moped can be a safe and affordable way to travel around Abbeville. Because of a moped’s small size and their driver’s full exposure, a collision between a moped and a vehicle can be dangerous or deadly for the moped driver.
Louisiana is a “fault” state, which means the at-fault driver should be responsible for paying for all of your losses through their insurance company. This may require your legal team to prove that the accident that caused your injuries resulted from the at-fault driver’s negligence. Our team might be able to provide proof of:
- Your right to expect a standard of care
- The at-fault driver’s breach of that standard
- Your injuries that resulted from this breach
- The financial impact of your injuries
An Abbeville moped accident lawyer might be able to prove the legal components that identify negligence. Because negligence may entitle you to full financial recovery, proving the at-fault driver’s negligence is our goal.

Recovering from the Physical Aftermath of an Abbeville Moped Accident
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported 3,370 cases of traumatic brain injury (TBI) due to moped or dirt bike use from 2001 to 2009. The CDC describes a TBI as an injury that can range from mild to severe and disrupt normal brain function. The impact of a TBI can include:
- Impaired cognitive skills
- Memory issues
- Personality changes
People who suffer from TBI after a moped accident might require treatment that includes prolonged rest, careful monitoring, and physical and occupational therapy. In severe cases, you might need to relearn the skills that let you manage your daily care.
When our team helps you build a case for financial compensation after a moped accident, we will include your immediate and long-term medical care with your compensable damages. You might also be entitled to additional financial recovery for the full range of expenses and losses created by the accident.

Recovering from the Financial Aftermath of an Abbeville Moped Accident
While your health care team creates a treatment plan to restore your health as fully as possible, our client care team creates a personal injury plan to restore your financial health. The days and weeks after a moped accident can create an incredible variety of expenses and losses.
The driver whose negligence caused them to collide with your moped might be legally responsible for your recoverable damages, including:
- All short and long-term medical care until your recovery is complete
- Loss of employment and income related to your injuries
- Any counseling or therapy required by mental and emotional trauma
- The cost to repair or fully replace your damaged or destroyed moped or other property
Once these costs are calculated, we might be able to negotiate a financial settlement with the at-fault driver or their insurance representative. During settlement talks, our goal is to help you avoid a lengthy court case while ensuring you receive a favorable financial settlement that fully covers the cost of the collision.

Negotiating a Favorable Settlement Deal
When we have carefully calculated the total cost of your moped accident, we may work with the at-fault driver to reach a financial settlement. We work hard to accurately value your compensation claim because once you accept a settlement offer, your claim’s resolution is permanent. You will not be able to request additional compensation later.
If we cannot reach a settlement offer, we will take your fight for compensation to court. If your claim goes to court, each side may gather facts and evidence about the collision, conduct depositions, and go before a judge or jury. We will fight hard for a settlement package that fully covers your expenses, but we will not hesitate to go to court to get the compensation you deserve if necessary.
Your Personal Injury Lawyer Is Your Champion
When you hire a personal injury lawyer after a moped accident, we might be able to help you or someone you love fight for financial compensation. To build an effective case that points to the cause of, and fault for, the accident, our team members may:
- Compile evidence that supports your claim
- Evaluate the financial worth of your claim
- Prove the negligence that entitles you to compensation
- Negotiate with the at-fault driver and their insurer
- Update you as your case progresses
You are not in the fight for compensation by yourself. Our team is here to listen to your story with compassion, provide responsive legal care, and ensure you receive the financial compensation you are entitled to due to negligence. With our team working on your financial recovery, you can focus on maximizing your physical recovery.
We May Start Working on Your Case Immediately
Louisiana has a short timeline for filing a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver in your injury claim. Louisiana Civil Code (CC) §3492 generally entitles you to a year from the date of the accident to file. While you focus on getting better, our team will focus on ensuring you do not run out of time to get the financial compensation you deserve.
Because the statute of limitations is generally one year, hiring an Abbeville moped accident lawyer early can ensure compliance with the filing deadline. Not meeting the statute of limitations in your Abbeville moped case could put your right to compensation in jeopardy.
