Oh, one other thing.....
Even if you do get a lawyer, do the property damage yourself with her insurance. This was suggested to me by my lawyer, and it turned out great.
Make a list of all parts that were damaged, print out treats or 77s web pages with pics for each part you want to be reimbursed for.
Then figure out how long you spent working on the Ped.
The time you spent customizing the moped should be reinbursed to you as well. I charged them 20hrs at $60 an hour for mine, + the damaged parts + the base moped price.
If a lawyer does all this, he'll get 30% of your parts, and you lose out.
You also might need to have someone sign off on the moped saying it's not safe to drive anymore, any buddy with a shop could do it. (edited)
