E-Scooters: A New Danger On New York City Streets

Every new type of transportation to enter New York City streets brings with it new dangers. Electric scooters are no exception. Companies like Lime, Revel, Bird and Lyft have unleashed thousands of e-scooters on streets throughout the city. While scooters provide recreation and can even help out with the daily commute, they can also cause serious injuries and even wrongful death. If you or a loved one has been injured in an e-scooter accident, it is important to consult with a personal injury lawyer who stays abreast of emerging technologies and their attendant dangers.

At Edelman & Edelman, P.C., we know New York City streets and we know personal injury law. We remain up to date on emerging transportation technologies and the dangers they pose to New Yorkers. With decades of experience in personal injury law, we can help you seek full and fair compensation for the hardships you have suffered due to an e-scooter accident.

Uncovering The Causes Of E-Scooter Accidents

E-scooter accidents take many forms. Some of the most common accident scenarios include:

  • A motor vehicle colliding with an e-scooter due to distracted driving
  • A malfunctioning e-scooter stopping abruptly, throwing off the rider
  • Faulty e-scooter brakes or steering resulting in a collision
  • An e-scooter stalling on a busy street, leaving the rider in the path of traffic
  • A pedestrian or bicyclist getting struck by the negligent operator of an e-scooter

The at-fault party could be a driver, a product manufacturer, a business or a combination of parties. The injured party needs maximum compensation for his or her injuries, which is why it is so important to gather all of the facts pertaining to the accident and to identify all liable parties.

This is still a relatively new form of transportation and laws are being developed over how accident claims are handled. We keep abreast of all developments in the law so we can provide our clients with the cutting-edge legal representation they deserve.
