Electric Scooter Accidents
Electric scooter (e-scooter) rentals have become increasingly popular in major cities throughout the United States including here in South Florida. They provide an alternative way for the public to go sightseeing, a new transportation option for locals in downtown areas to commute with fewer traffic and parking hassles, and of course just plain old fun. However, the roadways, sidewalks and bicycle lanes are shared by everyone and an electric scooter rider and those around them face increased risk of serious injuries as a result. Much like bicycle and pedestrian accidents, accidents involving scooters often involve catastrophic injuries or even death.
Scooter accidents can happen in a variety of ways:
- Aggressive or distracted motor vehicle drivers
- Unsafe scooter due to design or manufacturing defect
- Improper maintenance or repairs
- Brake failure
- Defects in a sidewalk or driveway.
- Collapsed handlebars
- Brake failure
- Flat tires
- Defective motors
The most common scooter accident injuries can include:
- Broken or fractured bones
- Internal bleeding
- Loss or reduction of mobility
- Neck and spine injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Torn ligaments and tendons
- Scrapes and bruises
