Did you know that more than 40,000 people go to the emergency room every year due to an E-Scooter accident? The injuries can be quite severe, ranging from broken bones to facial lacerations. Most commonly, accidents are caused by poor designs and improper maintenance. Often, the braking mechanism of the E-Scooter malfunctions. Riders who are injured in an E-Scooter accident may be entitled to compensation.
Another common injury can occur when innocent pedestrians are injured by careless E-Scooter riders. Companies like Bird, Lime, Link, and Spin rent their E-Scooters to riders with no prior riding experience. These riders often are unaware that they must follow specific laws and regulations when operating the E-Scooter. For example, many cities prohibit riding E-Scooters on sidewalks. Pedestrians injured by an E-Scooter may also be entitled to compensation.
