One reply on “Mo-Ped Injury To Cost Roughly $3 Million”
One more added tip: check with your insurance carrier as well because most athlete disability policies exclude “motorcycles” and I can assure you that the carrier would most likley deem a moped a motorcycle in order to attempt to deny any claim associated with a similar accident.
