Electric scooters are popular on the streets and sidewalks of Los Angeles. Initially introduced as an eco-friendly form of transportation, their popularity and presence have soared in recent years, with increasing accident rates reflecting the change.
Common Causes of Los Angeles E-Scooter Accidents
E-scooters are slim in profile, and many riders lack the necessary training or protection, making them incredibly vulnerable. Some of the more common causes of Los Angeles e-scooter accidents include:
- Cars, trucks, and motorcycles not seeing the rider and swerving into them when making a turn
- Getting struck by a car door opening
- Poor road conditions (i.e., potholes)
- Scooter maintenance issues
Even the most straightforward liability cases will be hard-fought by the other side to limit your payout. In many instances, the defendant will assert that the rider caused the accident in total or in part, which complicates the case. As such, you do not want to handle it on your own. Let Fiore Legal obtain maximum compensation for the injuries you are now dealing with from your accident.
