Electric Scooter Accident
In the recent times, popularity of Electric Scooters has gone up in major cities. Electric scooters are an easy mode of transportation, extremely helpful for travelling in congested cities and they are easily available for us on many street corners. But one has to understand that just because they’re easily available for use, it doesn’t mean they are safe.
In many cities of Northern California like San Francisco, Sacramento etc. companies like Bird, Lime and Spin have been providing electric scooters to the residents and tourists to help them get around. In most of the cases, the electric scooters can be picked up and parked anywhere in the city. Though these electric scooters are convenient to use and are very comfortable to ride and park anywhere in the country, one should not forget that the riders are at high risk of injury or accident by collision with other vehicles.
Today thousands of electric scooters are operating in California, and electric scooter accidents are becoming more and more predominant.
The electric scooters can be dangerous to ride, and at the same time the users just leave them anywhere in the city after use, these can result in many safety hazards.
If you or your loved one has been a victim of an electric scooter accident, due to someone else’s carelessness or mistake, contact a personal injury lawyer immediately. There are chances that the insurance companies may deny claim for the medical bills, loss of work, emotional trauma etc. arising from a scooter accident and may shift the blame on you.

Parties liable for Electric scooter accident
A victim of an electric scooter accident is eligible for compensation if he or she is able to prove that the accident was a result of someone else’s negligence or carelessness. The court requires the burden of proof to be established. A professional lawyer can help you in determining the burden of proof, which can help in building a strong case for the plaintiff. Below mentioned are few parties who can be held liable in case of an electric scooter accident:
- Driver – Driver of another vehicle can be held liable if their driving has caused a collision resulting in injury to the victim. They can be held liable for reckless behaviour causing the accident.
- Electric Scooter Company – The electric scooter company like Bird or Lime can be held liable in case where defective or malfunctioning scooters were responsible for the accident. Even in case where the state regulations are broken, the scooter company can be held responsible.
- Manufacturer – The manufacturer of the electric scooter can be held liable if it is ascertained that the scooter had a defect which caused the accident.
In most of the cases involve the fault is shared fault by more than one responsible party. This becomes complicated and hence you may require the assistance of an experienced lawyer to determine the right defendant file a personal injury claim against them in California.
