Causes of Electric Scooter Accidents
Why is it that electric scooters seem to be so dangerous? What is the most common cause of electric scooter accidents? Questions like these help our attorneys understand and pinpoint liability in our client’s claims. By building a deep understanding of the issues and going the extra mile to ensure we know everything about each case we take, we prepare our clients for success.
Most electric scooter accidents involve one or more of the following causes:
- Rider negligence: Some scooter riders do not follow the rules of the road or cannot control their devices safely. If you were hit by a negligent scooter rider, we can help you determine whether you are eligible to file for compensation.
- Driver recklessness: There have been many stories of electric scooter riders being struck by negligent or reckless motorists. People are not used to seeing electric scooters in crosswalks and on sidewalks, and they might not notice them until it is too late.
- Product defect: Ridesharing electric scooters are used day in and day out by numerous people who do not know about or how to report possible defects or damage. Additionally, the companies that own them tend to outsource maintenance, meaning defects are more likely to go unnoticed. A scooter that does not work as expected or breaks mid-ride can cause an accident.
