Slip and Fall Injury
Some Common Causes of Lime Accidents
Lime scooter accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. Scooter accidents can occur under the following circumstances: reckless drivers, reckless riders, and defective scooters, for insurance. Many Lime scooter accidents are injured after being struck by the reckless drivers of other vehicles, such as cars, trucks, and motorcycles, for example. Scooter accidents could also be caused by reckless Lime riders. You could be struck by someone who was riding a scooter recklessly. Reckless drivers could cause accidents even if they are no longer riding the scooter. For example, leaving a scooter somewhere where it blocks a walkway or poses a trip hazard could cause a trip and fall accident.
Defective scooters are also likely to cause accidents. Some common defects include faulty wheels, brakes, handles, and slippery decks. For example, it is possible that the scooter flipped over and caused your injuries because of faulty brakes. Likewise, you might have slipped and fell off the scooter because of a slippery deck. Whatever the case, you might have grounds to sue Lime Scooter for your injuries. You must contact our law firm as soon as possible to learn more about whether you could pursue a claim against Lime for a scooter accident.
Scooter Brakes Automatically Locked
The scooter brakes automatically locked on me, causing an accident. Can I sue? If the scooter brakes automatically locked on you while you were riding causing you to fall or crash, you could sue for any resulting injuries. Unfortunately, brake issues are very common in these electric scooters. These brake issues typically go back to Lime, and other scooter companies (including Bird, Spin, Wind, Skip, Lyft, etc.), failing to inspect and repair their scooters to ensure that they are completely safe to be used. Do I have a case? Yes – if you were injured in a scooter accident resulting from the brakes automatically locking during use, then you could have a case. You could sue Lime scooter or any other e-scooter company for the harm that you suffered. With the help of a lawyer experienced in automatic brake lock scooter accidents, you can better understand your right to sue. If you are ready to speak with our expert attorneys, contact us today.

Lime Accidents and Product Liability: What to do after an Accident
As discussed in the sections above, Lime scooter accidents could occur for a variety of reasons-including product defects. If your Lime scooter accident was caused by a defective or broken scooter, you might have grounds to file a product liability lawsuit. If you would like to file a Lime scooter injury lawsuit for injuries caused by a defective product, you must do all of the following:
- Report the accident -you must promptly contact Lime and report the accident. Most incidents can be reported through the Lime mobile application. When you report the accident, you must avoid revealing any information that could be used against you and your injury claim.
- Preserve the evidence -you must do everything within your reach to preserve evidence for your claim. In product liability claims, the most important piece of evidence is the defective product. The first thing you should do is take photographs of the defective product, making sure that the defect is clear. If possible, take the defective scooter home. Once at home, ensure that the scooter’s defect remains as it is; do not attempt to fix the defect. If you cannot take the scooter to a safe place to store it as evidence, you must at least keep the photographs as evidence.
- Seek medical attention -another important thing that you must do is seek medical attention. Your accident might have left you in need of emergency medical care; if so, you must contact emergency services. If your injuries are not life-threatening and you can get yourself to a doctor, you must do so immediately. If you allow many days, weeks, or even months to pass before you seek medical attention, it will be more difficult to prove that the defective Lime scooter caused your injuries, and, subsequently, it would be harder to reach a positive outcome for your claim.
- Contact the police -if another vehicle, such as a car, truck, bus, or motorcycle, was involved in your accident, you must contact the authorities. When the police arrive at the scene of the accident, you should ensure that you file an accident report. Filing an accident report can help strengthen your Lime accident claim.
- Contact an attorney -after you do everything above, you must contact an attorney. During your search for an attorney, you must ensure that you speak with a lawyer who is experienced in Lime scooter accident claims, especially since a lack of experience an severely affect the outcome of your claim.
Unfortunately, many people lose their right to file a product liability lawsuit because they fail to follow key steps, such as photographing the defective product or seeking medical attention. If you would like more information about what you should do to preserve your right to file a product liability lawsuit against Lime, you must contact our law firm as soon as possible.
