Being that Gainesville is the home to the University of Florida and Santa Fe College, Gainesville residents have seen a surge in the number of scooters commuting on the roads in our college town in the last decade. Scooters provide students and Gainesville residents alike with cheap transportation and the ability to move around campus and its surrounding areas quickly. However, scooter owners face the same dangers motorcycle owners face on a daily basis. Between the repeal of the mandatory helmet laws in Florida and the increase in large vehicle ownership, scooter accidents in Gainesville are on the rise.
Due to the fact Florida no longer requires scooter riders to wear helmets, many scooter accidents result in serious injuries that can dramatically impact one's life. These serious injuries often turn into complex personal injury cases that will require the assistance of an experienced Gainesville lawyer that fully understands the complexities of scooter accident law. Our attorneys are not just Gainesville residents, we are graduates of the University of Florida and we fully understand the unique relationship between the city of Gainesville and the University of Florida.
