E-Scooter v. Pedestrian Accident Lawsuit Attorney

E-Scooter v. Pedestrian Accident Lawsuit Attorney accident liability incident injury
I Was Hit by an E-Scooter When Walking on the Sidewalk

Electric scooters have become all the rage, to use to get around on the ground and explore major cities here and abroad. The idea of the E-scooter is this: you put the app for it on your phone, pay for it and unlock it on your mobile phone, then rent the E-scooter for the day, leaving it who knows where to be picked up by someone else, not your concern. The idea of E-scooters is to make walking around and discovering a big city “fun” and exciting, which it could be when you rent or someone else rents one of these scooters. The problem comes with people who have varying ability to follow the posted and stated E-scooter rules, follow the E-scooter guidelines, and generally use common sense to keep the public safe while people are riding on these toys.

E-scooters are actually very dangerous to operate and to be walking near when someone else you don’t know who is operating it. The E-scooters can go pretty fast, up to 15 miles an hour, and they are meant to be ridden by one person. People who rent E-Scooters may have never ridden on one before, and are only given a short video on how to ride them before they rent them. These types of E-Scooters are always used and operated incorrectly, outside of the rules of the company providing these services to the public. People will allow others to ride with them, will carry parcels that are too heavy for the scooter, and will generally misuse the scooter which will cause a hazard for people walking in the vicinity of an E-scooter.

For example, E-scooter riders are told to not ride on the sidewalk, only to ride in the street or on a bike lane. They are also supposed to bring their own helmets, and be over 18 years old. They should not just dump the scooter unceremoniously on the sidewalk and walk away, but people do just that when they reach their destination (or tire of being on a scooter all day). This can create a major hazard for a pedestrian walking down the sidewalk. When people injure pedestrians on their E-scooter, they often just throw an off-handed apology for the collision around their back, and keep going, leaving the scene of the accident forever (and taking their identity with them)! The use of E-scooters are a nuisance and a hazard, and it creates more problems than solves problems in general for the riders and the pedestrians in their path.

Common Injuries from an E-scooter Accident with a Pedestrian

There are many common injuries that can be experienced when a rider on an E-scooter hits a pedestrian. The injuries are:

  • Fractures of hip, arms and legs
  • Head injuries
  • Contusions and bruises
  • Sprains
  • Lacerations of the face
  • Subdural hematoma
  • Traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage
  • Cervical spine fractures
  • Concussion
  • Coma
  • Abdominal and internal injuries
  • Distal lower extremity
  • Open fractures
  • Closed fractures
  • Dislocations

When a pedestrian is forced off of the pavement by an E-scooter rider, the pedestrian is at a major disadvantage. Oftentimes, the pedestrian never saw the E-scooter rider coming, which pushes the pedestrian backwards, to fall and hit the head or to break an arm, leg, hip or back in the process of hitting the concrete hard and unawares. You can be on the sidewalk of a major city, walking down the street, minding your own business, when you are suddenly pushed off your feet and struck from behind by an operator on an E-Scooter.

When you are surprised by an injury from a reckless E-Scooter operator, you definitely need a lawyer with specialty in this type of case. You need a way to pay these bills, when you require relief from your expenses and damages related to the loss. You will not be expecting the bills for your medical care, but the bills will come in nevertheless. You need to call our law office, to you to get the settlement package that you deserve in this type of case.
