As the electric scooter-share industry continues to grow in popular cities throughout the state, the instances of accidents involving these scooters have also increased. Because scooter accident claims are relatively new to the legal field, there is a general lack of information available from victims and their families.
At Downtown L.A. Law Group, we have dedicated our time and effort to ensuring that our experts are prepared to handle these cases. If you or a member of your family were involved in a Lime or Bird accident that resulted in damages, you might have grounds to take legal action. Could you take legal action if your scooter accident was caused by a pothole? Regardless of the cause of your scooter accident, you could pursue an injury claim. If you would like to learn more about the legal action that you can take after being involved in a electric scooter accident, do not hesitate to
1. Statistics on Scooter Accidents
Statistics show that there have been more than 1,500 scooter-related accidents in the past year throughout the United States. Shortly after electric scooters emerged, a study began in Southern California (information about the study is available through JAMA Network). The study focused on two hospitals near these scooter “hot-spots” and evaluated information made available through these hospitals during a one-year timeframe. During this time, there were almost 250 patients admitted to these hospitals after scooter-related accidents. The majority of these patients, approximately 80%, suffered injuries after falling from their scooters. Approximately 11% of these patients were involved in accidents after colliding with another object. Because scooter accidents are relatively new types of accidents, it is possible that the numbers available are inaccurate; after all, many hospitals still don’t collect information on these types of accidents. If you would like to further review data on scooter accidents, do not hesitate to seek the assistance of an expert on scooter accidents.
Although scooter accidents are very specific types of accidents, the types of injuries that victims could suffer are similar to other types of personal injury accidents. Some of the most common types of injuries possible after scooter accidents might include hand and wrist injuries as well as foot and ankle injuries. Other common injuries might include head injuries and traumatic brain injuries (especially considering that most people that ride scooters do not wear helmets). Other injuries that the parties involved in scooter accidents might suffer include but are not limited to the following: broken bones, neck injuries, back injuries, shoulder injuries, hip injuries, pelvic injuries, knee injuries, bruises, and lacerations, for example. These injuries vary significantly on severity of the accident.
2. Who is Liable for Lime and Bird Scooter Injuries?
In general, liability for these types of accident falls back on the party that directly caused the accident. If the accident was caused by the reckless actions of a driver, the driver would likely be liable, for example. If the accident was caused by the reckless actions of the scooter rider, the rider would likely be liable for the accident and for the injuries that he or she suffered, for example. In these cases, liability is usually straightforward.
Who is responsible for Lime and Bird scooter injuries if the accident was caused by a pothole? Depending on the specific situation, potholes must be addressed by the county, the city, or by transportation agencies. If you hit a pothole and suffered an accident in the city of Los Angeles, for example, the city of Los Angeles might be liable for the harm suffered. This is specifically due to the fact that the city is responsible for maintaining roads. If they fail to address the hazard posed by a pothole, they could be held accountable for failing to take action to fill the pothole.
You hit a pothole, but you find that the brakes are not working when you try to come to a stop to avoid a collision. You cannot avoid a collision because of the faulty brakes. In this case, who is liable? Without a doubt, the city or other responsible party could be partially liable for the accident. Would the scooter-share company also be liable due to the faulty brakes that contributed to the accident and the harm suffered? Without a doubt, both Bird and Lime could face liability under these circumstances.

Personal injury is an area of law based on damages that affect the body. Physical harm is the main predicate for these claims, and injuries can happen in any number of ways whether in car accidents, dog bites, construction accidents, bed bugs, slip and falls, and by defective products. These injuries can happen anywhere, whether at work, in the park, or in someone’s yard. Injury Cases are handled by a personal injury lawyer and will be handled with a settlement between us and the insurance agency, or we will go to civil court to seek a verdict.
Basis of a ClaimIn order to file a lawsuit, you must be aware of the concept of negligence. You will only be able to win your personal injury case if you can prove that the opposing party was negligent in his duties and caused you harm. Negligence can be established as true via the following four points:
- You were owed a duty of care
- The duty of care was breached
- The breach caused an injury
- The accident resulted in physical harm
