Liability In Scooter Accidents
As companies like Lime and Bird have grown so to have the number of scooter accidents. In the past several months alone, there have been nearly half a dozen scooter accidents on or near the Boardwalk in Mission Beach. A lawsuit has recently been filed early in March. The plaintiffs are asking for geo-fencing that would prevent scooters from working on sidewalks, parks and similar areas. A number of other lawsuits have listed multiple other reasons for accidents:
- Stem collapses
- Stuck accelerators
- Brake malfunctions
- Steering problems
Defects within a roadway may also contribute to accidents as well. For example, a small pothole or uneven pavement can become lethal hazards for scooter riders. A person can get ejected from their scooter and end up being seriously injured. Injuries from a scooter accident can create high medical bills for victims. A scooter accident attorney can investigate all of the facts of your case and let you know what your options are.
