Standing Up For Victims Of Electric Micromobility Device Injuries

When you hopped on an electric scooter, electric bike or similar electric-powered vehicle, you thought that, at best, you’d enjoy a ride or get to your destination a little faster. At worst, you thought you’d get some bumps or scrapes. You never expected the battery on the device to explode or the brakes to fail. Now, you’re dealing with severe injuries and the financial fallout of the accident.

If you’re dealing with a situation like this, the attorneys at Edelman & Edelman, P.C., are here for you. We help people in New York explore their legal options, seek accountability for their accidents and pursue compensation to support their recovery.

What Is An Electric Micromobility Device?

An electric micromobility device is any small, electric-powered vehicle that travels at low speeds. E-bikes and e-scooters are the most common examples of electric micromobility devices. Other examples include:

  • Segways
  • Hoverboards
  • Electric roller skates
  • Electric skateboards

While these devices offer a fast, fun and eco-friendly way of getting around the city, they can also pose significant safety threats.

What Injuries Result From Electric Micromobility Devices?

Using an e-bike or an e-scooter is inherently risky. However, these devices can have defects that make using them far more dangerous than any rider would reasonably expect. When their batteries explode or their brakes malfunction, the following injuries can result:

  • Burns
  • Broken bones
  • Abrasions or road rash
  • Lost teeth
  • Back injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Other injuries that require surgery or multiple surgeries

A micromobility injury, e-bike injury or e-scooter injury like the above could change everything. Being hospitalized and missing work has a staggering financial impact between medical bills and lost wages. Your medical treatment and recovery process may be extensive. You may even spend the rest of your life dealing with the effects of your injuries.

Legal Options For Victims Of Micromobility Injuries

If you got hurt because of a defective electric micromobility device, you may have grounds for a product liability claim or a personal injury claim. Our attorneys can review the details of your case, explore potential legal options and proceed with the next steps in your case.
