Segway Accident Lawyer | Defective Segway Injuries


Segway’s are a popular mode of transportation and tourism. Touring companies and resorts use offer Segway’s to residents and often times rent them out. However, without the proper supervision Segway tours or Segway rentals in Los Angeles, New York and other major cities across the county can be dangerous. If you have been injured from the use of a Segway you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

Who is liable for my injuries?

Liability is always a difficult question to answer and can depend on a number of different factors. However, Segway tours can be liable if they fail to provide proper supervision, failure to provide helmets or failing to inspect the equipment prior to rental. Segway’s use motion activated and maneuvered chips, which can at times malfunction causing the machine to deny or refuse to follow the operator’s commands. A rental or touring agency has a duty to inspect such equipment to make sure they are free from defects before allowing a occupant to use the device. If you were injured as a result of a defective Segway you may be able to recover for your injuries.

Does a waiver limit my ability to recover?

Waivers are not always iron clad and can be pierced. However to do so there are certain challenges which need to be overcome in order to pierce the waiver. When an operator is negligent then a waiver may not be able to an effective mode of waiving liability. The law will not allow a company to waive their own negligence merely by having a customer or patron sign a waiver. However, in order to show liability it may be required that there be gross negligence. What is Gross Negligence: Gross negligence is defined as a wanton or reckless indifference for the safety of others. In other words the rental company must act in a manner that is beyond that of a reasonably prudent person. Thus, just because a waiver is signed, it does not mean that a rental company cannot be held liable. In such situations a rental company can still be held responsible to some degree when there is a showing of gross negligence.  Our firm has the experience you need: Downtown LA Law’s Segway accident and defect attorneys can help determine whether you are entitled to recovery for your damages.
