Electric scooters can be a fun, fast, and efficient way for some people to zip across the city. They also pose serious safety hazards. Several studies done by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) report the use and character of injuries sustained by electric scooter riders. A recent media release reports that electric scooter riders suffer more injuries per mile traveled than bicyclists. The severity of injuries sustained by electric scooter riders is also associated with whether they are riding on the road or on the sidewalk.

Who is Legally Responsible for Your Electric Scooter Accident Injury?

There may be many different parties legally responsible for your electric scooter accident injury. A thorough investigation of your accident will determine which parties you can take legal action against. The following may be a basis for holding the responsible parties accountable for the damages you suffered:

  • Product liability – if your injury was caused by a defect in the electric scooter. The manufacturer or seller of the product may be legally responsible for your damages.
  • Premises liability – a pothole or other unsafe conditions on the road or other public property may be the cause of the accident that resulted in your injury. If that is the case, the property owner or manager may be liable for your damages. In some cases this may be the city of Chicago or other governmental body.
  • Negligence – other parties who failed to take reasonable care to avoid causing you harm could also be held responsible for your injury. This includes vehicle operators and other road users who may have caused the accident that resulted in your injury.

Duty of Electric Scooter Riders

Just as others owe a duty of care to avoid causing harm to electric scooter riders, you also have a duty to others and a responsibility to operate your electric scooter safely. If an investigation reveals that you were partly at fault for the accident that caused your injury, your ability to recover the full extent of your damages may be affected.
