Riding an eScooter can be fun, but it can also be dangerous. Studies have shown that hospitalizations resulting from eScooter accidents tend to increase dramatically after the introduction of rentable eScooters into new cities and other locations. Non-riders can suffer injuries in eScooter-related accidents as well. Regardless of what happened, if you were injured by an eScooter or while riding one, you owe it to yourself to speak with an attorney about your legal rights.
The rise in popularity of rentable electric scooters has led to a wave of accidents in cities across the United States. From Florida to California, eScooters dropped off at street corners and other locations offer a new and fun means of transportation, but they also present serious risks for riders and pedestrians. From throttle failures to trip hazards, and from sudden speed changes to lack of safety equipment, eScooters present many dangers, and these dangerous can lead to life-altering injuries for unsuspecting riders and pedestrians.
But, eScooters themselves are not the only dangers. Aggressive, careless and distracted drivers have caused many eScooter accidents, as have sidewalk defects and roadway hazards.
