E-Scooter Accidents

California E-Scooter Accident Lawyers

Sacramento-based firm represents victims of electric scooter injuries statewide

Crowded roads, high gas prices and parking difficulties are just three of the reasons why more California residents have turned to electric scooters when they need to make a local trip. However, drivers often fail to share the road safely, resulting in a tremendous spike in rider injuries of the past few years. In fact, a study of the Los Angeles area found that the injury rate of people using e-scooters is higher than the nationwide rate for motorcycle riders. Mastagni Holstedt, APC represents clients in Sacramento and throughout the state who have been hurt in accidents involving e-scooters. Whether you were hurt while riding or struck by someone on an e-scooter, we will pursue the payment you’re entitled to for your medical expenses and other damages. 

Common causes of accidents involving scooters

Whether someone buys a Segway for themselves, uses the Bird app for a short trip or rides some other type of e-scooter, there are several potential hazards that can lead to collisions. Heavily traveled areas and busy intersections often lead to accidents because drivers are not necessarily looking for scooter riders, especially when they are making a left turn across one or more lanes of traffic. Riders who take advantage of an e-scooter’s size and flexibility by driving through cars can increase the risk of an injury to themselves or someone else. If a part of the scooter fails, the person on it might not be able to avoid a serious crash. Whatever led to the accident that caused your injury, you can rely on us to make every legal effort to hold the at-fault party accountable.   

Legal standards relating to e-scooter collision claims

A vehicle operator has a legal duty to others on the road. When a collision occurs between an e-scooter and a car or truck, the motorist might try to shift the blame to the rider. Our firm works diligently to demonstrate what actually happened so that victims can secure the full payment that they deserve. California’s comparative negligence law allows personal injury victims to collect damages even if they were partly to blame for the incident, with their recovery being reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to the plaintiff. 

Compensation for injured plaintiffs

Damages in California personal injury cases are divided into two categories: economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are accident-related losses that have a specific cost, such as medical expenses, income lost during time out of work and the repair or replacement of your e-scooter. We fight to get these items fully reimbursed while also looking to maximize non-economic damages that address other types of harm stemming from an e-scooter accident. Compensation for non-economic damages can address the pain and suffering you endured, the emotional distress resulting from the accident, permanent harm to your body and the loss of enjoyment in your life stemming from your crash.
