Electric scooters are becoming a more popular means of transportation in urban areas, both by people who own them as well as in sharing services like Divvy, Lime and Bird that give broad access to scooters, bikes and other vehicles. While these scooters add convenience to the user, they also add more types of traffic to roadways, and potential safety hazards. Unfortunately, many drivers on the road are not paying proper attention for these types of motorists. Crashes occur as a result.
At Pullano & Siporin, we understand the devastation that can occur after suffering a significant injury in an accident when riding an electric scooter. In this relatively new field of personal injury law, we are dedicated to aggressively advocating for our clients and ensuring they receive the maximum possible compensation for their case.
We assist clients who have experienced injuries such as:
There are multiple potential defendants that can be held liable in a scooter crash depending on the circumstances. Potential defendants include the driver of another car, the employer of the other driver, a public transportation agency, or even the rental company that owns the scooter. This is why it’s important to hire an experienced attorney that knows what the law is, and can file claims against all potential parties in timely fashion before evidence is lost or the law prevents you from filing a claim.
Irrespective of the mechanism of injury, it is always beneficial to work with a personal injury attorney that has experiencing working on cases similar to yours. Their practice area knowledge and their understanding of the investigation and negotiation processes gives you a much better chance of maximizing your compensation figure and removes a significant amount of stress from your life, allowing you to focus on your recovery.
