Who Is Safe On Electric Scooters?

Around the country, many groups are finally looking into how much danger that electric scooters pose. From hospitals and doctor’s offices to local governments and the CDC, it seems like everyone has had a realization that there may be more safety concerns than they initially realized when they approved the use of scooters all over the city. Some states and localities around the US have even banned electric scooter use.

At the Law Offices of Eugene G. Bruno, we understand that you may not know where to turn if you have been injured in a scooter crash. If you have been injured due to another person’s negligence, you may be eligible for compensation. When you need a San Diego personal injury attorney, our knowledgeable and experienced team will work to secure the funding you need.

No Training Required

It seems like each week we see stories of a person seriously hurt in a scooter crash in the city. Last week, n electric scooter rider slammed into a tree in downtown San Diego and was knocked unconscious. The 53-year-old man was turning from 10 Avenue onto B Street. The police say that his injuries were life-threatening.

Rider injuries on scooters are unfortunately common and of particular concern is the fact that anyone can get on them. With the touch of a button on a phone app, riders can gain access to electric scooters and zoom off at speeds of up to 15 mph. That may not seem like a very high speed, but if you consider that the rider may have never been on a scooter before, you can start to see the problems that may arise.

Is it wise for scooter companies to let anyone jump on board and ride?

The Total Scope

Scooter riders are not the only group that sustains injuries due to these incidents. Non-rider pedestrians are in just as much danger from being slammed into by an inexperienced rider. The injuries from an impact with a scooter going full speed can be severe. It is not uncommon for scooter crash victims, whether the rider or innocent bystander, to include broken and dislocated bones or severe lacerations. In many cases, there have even been traumatic brain injuries.

We also know that discarded scooters become tripping hazards for people walking down the sidewalk. Who is going to be responsible for damages and injury compensation?
