Agoura Hills E-Scooter Accident Lawyers

Electric scooters, also called e-scooters or motorized scooters, have exploded in popularity in recent years. E-scooters from rental and ride-share companies like Bird and Lime are ubiquitous on the boardwalks and other metropolitan areas across the State of California. They promise an ecologically sustainable, affordable, and convenient alternative to motorcycles, bicycles, or walking. E-scooters, however, carry their own risks. With the rise of electric scooters has come a rise in the number of injuries associated with their use.

The Halpern Law Firm has been protecting the rights of injured accident victims for more than four decades. If you were involved in an accident with an electric scooter, we’re ready to help you get the monetary recovery you and your family deserve. We fight to make sure the appropriate parties are held responsible for the harm they have caused. If you or a loved one has been injured in an e-scooter accident caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness, the Southern California personal injury lawyers at the Halpern Law Firm are ready to fight for you.

E-Scooter Laws Are Little-Known and Often Ignored

A motorized scooter is a two-wheeled device, powered by an electric motor, with handlebars, a base, and the capacity to travel up to 15 miles per hour. California state and several municipalities have imposed safety laws regarding the operation and storage of e-scooters, but many (if not most) people who casually rent a Lime or Bird scooter have no idea about these laws and might not care if they did.

E-scooter riders, for example, are required to wear a helmet and have a valid driver’s license or permit. Riders cannot travel with a passenger, ride on the sidewalk, or carry packages that would prevent them from keeping at least one hand on the handlebars. There are restrictions on where and how the scooters must be parked. These regulations are meant to promote the safety of e-scooter riders and other passers-by as well. Many scooter operators flaunt these regulations, increasing the dangers to pedestrians, motorists, and others.

If you were hurt in an accident caused by an e-scooter operator who ignored the safety rules, or if you were hurt by a negligent driver while riding an e-scooter yourself, you could be entitled to compensation. Talk to an experienced traffic accident lawyer at the Halpern Law Firm to understand your legal options.

Injuries Common to E-Scooter Accidents

Although electric scooters tend to travel at slow speeds, there is still a serious risk of injury. E-scooter accidents can lead to injured bicyclists, pedestrians, motor vehicle occupants, as well as the e-scooter rider. Depending upon the circumstances leading to the crash, the victim can suffer any number of injuries.
