Legal Assistance Tailored to a New Industry

Urban centers are growing extremely crowded and packed to the brim with vehicle traffic, which has led to adventurous entrepreneurs developing creative solutions. Bird scooters are one such solution, allowing people to rent electric motorized scooters for short trips around these urban centers. While proponents of these companies laud their convenience and efforts to reduce congestion and traffic, others worry about the safety hazard they can cause.

There’s a good reason for this concern: these scooters can approach 15 miles per hour, and riders are often not wearing safety gear that’s necessary to ensure low-risk operation at these speeds. Furthermore some riders also place themselves and those around them at an even greater risk by driving on sidewalks or weaving through traffic. If you have been hurt as a result of an accident involving a Bird scooter, either as a rider or as a result of a rider’s negligent actions, don’t hesitate to reach out to a Los Angeles injury lawyer as soon as possible to learn more about your right to compensation.

Some statistics on e-scooter accidents as reported by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC):

  • Head injuries account for 45% of all e-scooter accident-related injuries
  • Upper extremity fractures account for 27% of all e-scooter-related injuries
  • E-scooter injuries occur 14.3 times per every 100,000 trips
  • 29% of e-scooter related injuries are connected to first time riders
  • 18% of e-scooter injuries involve motor vehicles
  • Only 1 out of every 19 injured scooter riders was wearing a helmet
  • At least 8 people have died using dockless e-scooters since 2017

Accidents Involving Bird Scooters

While Bird scooters may seem like an ingenious idea to provide personal mobility at an extremely low cost (both in terms of price and environmental impact), there are flaws with the plan that have many people growing more and more concerned. Reckless riders have been found to leave the scooters in the middle of public walkways where they can cause someone to trip over them and fall.

Other riders simply hop onto the sidewalk to avoid vehicle traffic, increasing the risk of a pedestrian collision. Even riders who do operate vehicles safely are at risk of a vehicle hitting them simply because they weren’t paying attention or didn’t see them operating in a bike lane as they’re encouraged to do.

Some common Bird scooter accident injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Concussions & other head injuries
  • Whiplash or other neck injuries
  • Major bruising or muscular damage
