Scooter and Moped Accidents

In Florida, many people elect to drive electric scooters and mopeds rather than a traditional vehicle. They are easy to park, they get good gas mileage, and they are fun to drive. Unfortunately, they can also be dangerous. Distracted drivers make poor choices. If you were hit on a scooter or moped, consult with an experienced lawyer. Whether you were driving a scooter or a passenger on one, our attorneys will talk you through your legal rights after an accident.

Bird, Lime, Veo, and Razor Scooter Injuries

Electric scooter sharing is a new take on ride sharing. Similar to the old-school Razor scooters, Lime, Bird, and similar scooter companies have hit cities across the nation, offering an affordable way to get around town. In fact, downtown Tampa is one of the next cities expected to test an electric scooter sharing pilot program. However, there are risks associated with these programs.

A Fort Lauderdale mother has sued Lime after her daughter was severely injured on a Lime Scooter. She says the scooter’s app clearly instructs people not to drive on local sidewalks, thus pushing them onto the street. However, Florida law states operating scooters on the street is illegal. Unfortunately, the rider was following Lime’s instructions and was hit by a car and gravely injured. An attorney for the family states that scooter riders are not only getting hit by cars, but they are also hitting pedestrians by following Lime’s instructions.

Other riders claim their Lime scooters have caught fire and even broken in half. Were you injured on a Bird scooter, Lime scooter, or other electric scooter? Consider consulting with a lawyer who specializes in personal injury law in Florida.
