Were you are hit on your electric scooter?

Micromobility is the new way to get around LA and Southern California. With companies like Lime and Bird, it’s easier than ever to hop on a lightweight electric scooter and get to where you want to be. Unfortunately, whether you rent or own, injuries can happen when riding an electric scooter or e-scooter. 

If you’ve recently been involved in an accident involving one of these micromobility vehicles, you may need an electric scooter accident attorney. Learn the law surrounding e-scooters and how the law offices of Jacob Emrani can help.

What Is Liability in Electric Scooter Accidents?

There are three outcomes in liability in an electric scooter accident: you’re personally liable, someone else is liable, or the manufacturer is liable. 

If you think you may have contributed to the cause of the accident, you could be personally liable for some of the damages and injuries sustained. However, accidents often send people into shock and their memory may not be reliable. It’s important to contact a personal injury attorney before you claim responsibility. Other factors at play may decrease or absolve you of any liability, such as poor road maintenance or faulty manufacturing.

In cases when someone else is liable, it’s important to have someone on your side to deal with insurance companies, medical centers, and the police. Your injuries might make it difficult for you to take down the necessary witness statements, get the contact information for the other people involved, and acquire any footage or images capturing the incident. 

In cases involving product liability in which the manufacturer is at fault, you may need the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer who knows the law, what to look for, and how to find the information needed to pursue your scooter accident litigation case.

How Do I Know if I Have a Claim for an Electric Scooter Accident?

You won’t know if you have a claim unless you know the law. Electric scooter law in California states that you don’t need to register a scooter or have a driver’s license. If you were hit by someone driving a scooter, it could be difficult to pursue an electric scooter accident lawsuit

Whether you were hit by an e-scooter or involved in an accident while riding one, you deserve to receive fair compensation for your injuries or distress. Call Jacob Emrani for electric scooter legal advice and to find out if you have a claim. We offer no-cost case evaluations and no up-front fees to get started on your case.

What Types of Damages Can I Recover in an Electric Scooter Lawsuit?

If you have a valid scooter accident injury claim, you’re entitled to compensation for costs related to the accident. You may be able to recover the following types of damages:

  • Disability. An e-scooter accident can leave you with permanent disability, especially if your limbs, hips, back, or head are involved.
  • Disfigurement. When injuries disfigure your face and body, you can experience serious self-esteem issues, making it difficult to interact with others and hindering your ability to enjoy everyday life.
  • Loss of earnings. Many victims of vehicle accidents experience loss of earnings from the date of the injury through recovery and beyond. Loss of earnings compensation covers the cost of lost wages and future earnings.
  • Medical costs. In California, medical bills can exceed tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars, especially if you don’t have insurance. Recovering medical damages may help you avoid bankruptcy due to medical bills and help you get the care you need to make a full recovery.  
  • Pain and suffering. Incidents involving electric scooters can feel violent and leave you with emotional distress and potential agoraphobia. This can lead to a loss of ability to enjoy life and interfere with your personal and business relationships.  

How Long Do I Have To File an Electric Scooter Accident Claim?

The statute of limitations in California for personal injury cases is two years from the date of the incident. If the injury isn’t discovered until later, you have one year from the date of discovery. For property damage, you have up to three years to make your claim.

If your case involves government liability, you have six months to file your claim. If the claim is denied, you can proceed with a lawsuit in some cases. 

Given the time constraints, it’s important to find an electric scooter accident lawyer quickly. A good attorney fights for you and ensures you receive timely compensation.
