Electric scooters have overrun the streets and sidewalks of Los Angeles, as well as many other cities in the country. Electric scooters were initially introduced as an eco-friendly form of transportation as an alternative for cars; however, they pose many risks and are a nuisance to some.
Because these electric scooters have only recently been introduced, cities have not effectively implemented laws or have found a way to regulate the use of these scooters to provide a safer environment for scooter riders, pedestrians, and drivers. Unfortunately, scooter accidents do happen and when they do, victims are left with injuries ranging from minor to severe, which can turn out to be potentially fatal. Because electric scooter riders rarely wear any headgear for protection and they do not have any type of external protection, the types of injuries sustained can be extremely serious.
