Lime scooters are present alongside other competing companies. The scooters are widely available in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and other cities across the country. They were originally intended to be a “first and last mile” transportation option that people could use to get to train station or to finish up commutes to work or events. They have since evolved and become the primary mode of transportation for some individuals. Lime scooters do pose some threats to the health of riders, though, as evidenced by the numerous accidents that have happened since their introduction. Kenmore Law Group in Los Angeles is willing to assist you in filing a Lime electric scooter injury lawsuit. You should contact a law firm with experience in Lime injury lawsuits, like us, to help you with your case. Clients have asked us questions about how to sue and what you can receive from a lawsuit. Examples of these questions include:

  • What should I do if I fell off and got injured by a Lime scooter?
  • What should I do if I was struck by a Lime scooter?
  • What are the steps to take after getting injured in a Lime electric scooter accident?
  • What do I do if I was hit by a Lime scooter?
  • What do I do if I fell off a Lime scooter and I got hurt?
  • What do I do if a Lime scooter injured me?

How Lime Works

Lime scooters can be unlocked for $1 via an app on your phone and cost 10 cents per minute to ride. They can be left virtually anywhere and do not need to be hooked up to a charging station or a rack like bicycles. In order to rent a scooter, you must be over the age of 18 and present a valid driver’s license to the app. Lime has this rule in place to prevent liability of children getting hurt while riding the scooters.

The vehicles can go over 15 mph and are electronic; they are operated with a simple handlebar mechanism for throttle and brakes, and are generally easy to zip around on. The widespread usage of these scooters has caused them to be mass-produced and imported – which can be a problem, as there is a higher potential for defects to be present.

Some of the defects that Lime scooters can suffer from include faulty wiring and electronics, defective brakes, unsoldered handlebars, flat tires and busted wheels, broken reflective lighting, and other issues.

The problem with many Lime scooters is that they can be left around without any regard for the surroundings and that they are not too visible to other vehicles. Although it is required that riders adhere to the rules of the road, they are placing themselves in danger by riding in bike lanes – drivers may simply turn into them or sideswipe them if they are not careful.

No matter what the cause of your injuries from a Lime accident, you should contact an attorney that specializes in Lime accident cases.

What should I do if I was injured on a Lime scooter?

If you were injured on a Lime Scooter, you should immediately get medical help and do all you can to ensure that you stay healthy. The most important factor is not aggravating any injuries. You should also reach out to a skilled lawyer so you have a good chance at winning a lawsuit.

What kind of injuries can I get from a Lime scooter?

You can receive numerous kinds of injuries from a Lime scooter crash, such as broken arms, broken hands, broken legs, broken hips, concussions, traumatic brain injuries, closed head injuries, neck damage, spinal cord injuries, knee damage, arm damage, crushing injuries, nerve damage, disfigurement, gashes, and more.

Can you sue if you got injured riding a Lime scooter?

You can sue if you got injured riding a Lime scooter, especially if there were a defect. Our law firm can help you file a broken Lime scooter injury lawsuit.

Who do to I contact at Lime if I was in an accident?

If you were in an electric scooter accident, you should contact Lime to alert them to the fact that you were hurt while riding one of their vehicles. You can contact a lawyer later to assemble your evidence to file a lawsuit for compensation for your injuries.

Do I need a lawyer if I got injured by a Lime scooter?

Yes, you need a lawyer if you got injured by a Lime scooter. You are more likely to receive fair compensation if you have legal representation; if you try to file a claim by yourself, Lime will likely throw it out and ignore the request for restitution. An attorney will be able to negotiate a fair settlement and work around the clock to bring you what you deserve.

Steps to Take On a Lime Accident

A scooter accident can leave you confused and unsure of what to do, especially if you suffered severe injuries. Fortunately, there is a procedure you can follow that will ensure that you are safe and protected.

  • Immediately seek medical attention after getting injured while riding an electric Lime scooter. Your health is the highest priority; call the paramedics or go to the hospital to be treated if the injuries were severe. Some people may not feel that they were hurt, only to complain of pain a few days later. Go to the doctor no matter what; it can save you trouble if you choose to file a Lime electric scooter accident injury lawsuit.
  • If you can take the scooter home with you to preserve it as evidence, you should do so; otherwise, take photos of it.
  • Snap pictures of your injuries, the scene of the accident, the damage to the scooter, and anything else that may be used as evidence in a lawsuit.
  • Report the accident to Lime via the app or the website. You can take a screenshot of the ride information on your phone to show that you were rightfully operating the scooter.
  • In the event that you were struck by a vehicle, you should call the police to file a police report. This can be useful in your claim, and there can be appropriate punishments handed out to the responsible driver.
  • Get in touch with a Lime scooter injury lawyer for more help. If you call immediately following your incident, you can learn about the steps to take after a Lime scooter accident. Our law firm can help you figure out what to do after an accident on Lime and how to file a lawsuit against the company. You should not be expected to cover your own expenses if the accident was not your fault.

Earning Compensation from a Claim

A personal injury claim against Lime can net you different kinds of compensation for your damages. You should not be expected to cover the expenses that racked up after a crash if you were not at fault. A negligent driver should take care of the damages, or Lime should compensate you for your injuries if the company had a hand in the accident by providing a broken or defective scooter or if it allowed a rider to operate a scooter unlawfully.

With the help of our attorneys, we can secure you:

  • Medical expenses (surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy, and future medical procedures)
  • Lost wages (as well as future missed income from days you missed at work because of injuries or additional medical treatments)
  • Property damage (for anything that was lost or broken in the accident, including electronics, cell phones, laptops, textbooks, jewelry, and more)
  • Pain and suffering (psychological trauma, PTSD, anxiety, fear, emotional stress, and more)
  • Wrongful death expenses in the event of the death of a loved one or family member (funeral and burial costs, pre-death medical bills, pre-death pain and suffering, loss of consortium, loss of expected inheritance and savings, and more)

Our lawyers will strive to bring you the compensation you need from a Lime scooter injury lawsuit.

Statute of Limitations on Lime Injury Lawsuits

If you were hurt in a Lime scooter accident, you should be aware of the amount of time you have to file a claim. Taking too long will prevent you from being able to file a claim in the future and you won’t be able to pursue any compensation at all for your damages. Your case will simply be ignored or thrown out.

You only have two years from the date of the injury to take legal action. There are, of course, exceptions to this rule, such as your age at the time of the incident and your mental or physical state of mind (if either were hindered to the point that you could not reliably pursue a claim, the statute would be temporarily extended) following the crash. Further, the defendant could influence the deadline; if he left the state or country for a period of time, the statute would not be active until he returns.

Locations of Scooter Accidents

Although we know that scooter crashes can happen anywhere within a city, this does not explain where many of the crashes happen outside of California. One state that has recently been allowing scooters to populate its cities is Texas. Other states are allowing the scooters to be used everywhere without any legal obstruction (as was done in Beverly Hills). Some of these locations are:

  • Arlington
  • Austin
  • Dallas
  • Plano
  • Alameda
  • Albany
  • Burlingame
  • El Cerrito
  • Oakland
  • San Diego
  • San Francisco
  • San Mateo
  • Santa Monica
  • San Francisco
  • Lake Tahoe
  • Walnut Creek
  • Imperial Beach
  • Los Angeles
  • Santa Monica
  • Beverly Hills
  • Monrovia
  • Mountain View
  • National City
