Bird, Uber and Electric Scooters: The New Day and Age of Transportation and Liability

With Bird electric scooters and the new Uber scooters one can easily rent for the day or hour that are so conveniently found on the sidewalk or any random place creates new liability and causes for concern. Just as ride-sharing applications like Lyft and Uber created a tidal wave of liability for drivers of automobiles and Uber/Lyft, electric scooters are the new hot commodity.

Young teenagers and children can easily hop on and hop off an electric scooter, cross a busy intersection or speed through a stop sign. Accidents can and do occur. If you or a loved one was riding an electric scooter and was involved in a personal injury accident or crash that was not your fault, you can pursue a legal claim against the wrongdoing or negligent third party. If you were injured in the accident both physically and mentally, you are entitled to a legal claim for your medical treatment, pain and suffering and loss of income or wages. If serious injury resulted that permanently changed your life, your spouse may have a loss of consortium claim in connection with your case.
