How Electric Scooters May Be Unsafe

As a scooter lawyer Georgia has to offer, we have known about accidents that involve riders, pedestrians, or drivers of vehicles. Many of these accidents have involved:

  1. Defective scooter
  2. Riding without a helmet
  3. Children using the electric scooter
  4. Riding on the sidewalks
  5. Abandoning the scooter in unsafe areas, like the middle of a busy pathway
  6. Leaving the scooter in a handicapped-accessible area
  7. Two people riding the scooter at the same time
  8. Swerving in and out of pedestrians paths

If you were injured while using an electric scooter, Butler Law Firm would like to speak to you. For a consultation with an electric scooter lawyer in Georgia, call us today.

Electric scooters may go up to 15 miles per hour. Although that might seem slow, if you are hit by a car, serious injuries can result. Some of the risks for using these scooters as a transportation mode include:

  1. You are less visible to other vehicles
  2. Scooters are prone to vandalism (i.e., the brake line may be unknowingly cut)
  3. There is nothing to protect you
  4. Most electric scooter riders are young and present high-risk behavior
  5. Hitting any type of road hazard or debris could be dangerous
  6. If you lock the front brake, you could be thrown over the scooter
  7. Electric scooters may be unstable
  8. Many riders are inexperienced

    Defective Scooter

    As a scooter lawyer Georgia trusts, we have had an increase in calls from Lime and Bird users, or family members, who have suffered injuries in an accident because of a defective scooter. Electric scooters are subject to ongoing wear and tear. As a result, the risk of them malfunctioning is very high.

    Both Lime and Bird ask users to report any problems to the company; however, many fail to do so. If you believe your electric scooter was somehow defective, you should call a Georgia scooter lawyer at Butler Law Firm.

    Personal Injury Claims Involving an Electric Scooter

    Georgia laws are not specific when it comes to liability, negligence, and electric scooters. This means when an accident occurs, filing a claim for monetary compensation may be difficult. A thorough investigation will likely be required. In general, you should have a Georgia electric scooter lawyer on your side.

    For a consultation with a scooter lawyer, Georgia victims can count on, call Butler Law Firm.
