Although it is not a legal requirement to insure your scooter or powerchair, whether it be a pavement shopper or a road going machine, it is a good idea if you do not want to find yourself at the wrong end of an expensive law suit.
If you do not have mobility insurance, not only will you be responsible for all associated costs incurred in repairing your machine, you may also find yourself being sued for personal injuries to any third parties should you have an accident on your scooter or powerchair which involves another person or their property.
If you are leasing your scooter or powerchair on the Motability scheme you will have the peace of mind of knowing that fully comprehensive insurance is included in the agreement you sign.
If you have bought your mobility scooter another way, then you will normally need to arrange your own mobility scooter insurance. When you are arranging this insurance for your scooter or powerchair, you should ensure that public liability cover is included in addition to accidental damage and theft coverage.
There have been many highly publicised instances of accidents involving mobility scooters where the driver of the scooter did not have mobility scooter insurance and was then ordered by the courts to pay significant damages.
