Because urban centers have grown busy with vehicle traffic and crowded with people, entrepreneurs have started to come up with creative solutions to the problem. For example, Bird scooters, which allow customers to rent electric motorized scooters on which they can explore the city. While these scooters are often convenient and successful in reducing traffic and congestion, they also pose certain safety risks.
The biggest reason for concern is the fact that these scooters can reach up to 15 miles per hour, while riders are often without necessary safety gear that would ensure low-risk operation. Some riders also increase their risk of an accident by weaving through traffic or driving on the sidewalk. If you’ve been injured in a Bird scooter accident, either as a result of a negligent scooter driver or as a rider, reach out to a Burbank Bird scooter accident attorney as soon as possible to discuss your right to compensation.
These scooters often seem like a great idea for easy mobility around the city for a low cost, both financially and environmentally, but there are some problems that are causing people to become more concerned. Some reckless riders even leave their scooters in the middle of the sidewalk where they are easy to trip over and fall.
Other riders actually ride on public walkways to avoid vehicles. Unfortunately, this increases the risk of a pedestrian collision. Even riders who operate their scooters safely are at greater risk for an accident if the passenger vehicle driver is distracted or didn’t see the scooter in the bike lane for some reason.
Some of the most common injuries found in Bird scooter accidents include:
Bird scooter accidents can be complicated and leave questions about who is at fault and liable for compensation.
