Who Can Be Held Liable in an Electric Scooter Accident?

E-scooters have become extremely popular in the streets of Los Angeles, and frankly, all over the world. Companies like Bird, Lime, and others have revolutionized the industry by pairing them with technology, making it easy for riders to find and rent an electric scooter. 

E-scooters are extremely popular among many consumers because they are inexpensive to use, fun, eco-friendly and an efficient way to get around. However, many local and city authorities are not the biggest fans due to safety concerns. And it is true, e-scooters come with serious risks due to many reasons, including:

  • They do not come with safety gear
  • They are difficult for drivers to see
  • The scooter companies deny liability
  • Most riders do not follow or know traffic laws for e-scooters

Keep in mind that these are just a few of the reasons why e-scooters are dangerous. While the laws surrounding e-scooters are still evolving, it makes matters extremely complex in the event of an accident. Therefore, determining liability can be very tricky, which is why it is in your best interest to contact an e-scooter lawyer in Los Angeles if you have been involved in an electric scooter accident.

There are many different parties that can potentially be held liable for an e-scooter accident, including:

  • Scooter riders
  • Drivers
  • Motorcyclists 
  • Pedestrians
