Compensation for Lime, Bird and Go X Accidents

What is an e-scooter?

An electric scooter is a self-propelled transportation device. It usually has two wheels. The operator stands on a platform with one foot while using the other foot to steer and balance against the ground.

How our lawyers can help you

There are multiple e-scooter companies on the market. These companies rent scooters on city streets. People who rent them can sail down the sidewalks in cities throughout Hawaii.

Lime, Bird and Go X are just some of the e-scooter companies in the rental business. While lucrative for the companies and the municipalities that allow them to operate, they also produce serious injuries.

Victims may receive compensation. Our experienced Hawaii scooter accident lawyers are in the fight with you. We take a personalized approach to addressing client needs. We are passionate about achieving results for our clients.

What is the most common injury on a scooter?

40% of scooter injuries are head injuries including traumatic brain injury and skull trauma.

In addition, 32% of scooter injuries are fractures. Sprains and bruises without fracture account for another 28% of scooter injuries. (UCLA, Fractures, head injuries common).

Common scooter injuries

Here are some common scooter injuries which may be the basis for compensation:

  • Concussion, traumatic brain injury
  • Skull fracture
  • Broken bones
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Internal organ damage
  • Injury to vision
  • Death

Although scooters may travel at relatively low speeds compared to vehicles, accidents can cause serious injury. Most victims are operating the scooter, but bystanders can be victims, too.

Most scooter riders don’t wear helmets. Even at low speeds, injuries may be serious.

What are the causes of scooter accidents?

There are many underlying causes of scooter accidents, including:

  • Vehicle or scooter operators going too fast for pedestrian traffic in the area
  • Drivers failing to observe right of way laws and stop for a scooter in a crosswalk
  • Inadequate maintenance including deflated or defective wheels
  • Poor scooter design
  • Failing to warn an operator of risks and how to operate safely
  • Bad weather or road conditions that an operator doesn’t account for
  • Inexperience and a lack of caution for the various hazards of operating a scooter
  • Not paying enough attention to the task of operating
  • Carrying or transporting packages while riding
  • A motor vehicle departing from the lane of travel into the path of a scooter operator

Understanding the causes of a scooter accident may require an investigation. We determine who has legal fault for the accident and how to claim compensation.

Who may be at fault for a scooter accident?

Parties who may be at fault for a scooter accident are:

  • The scooter company
  • A motor vehicle driver
  • Party responsible for sidewalk or road maintenance
  • Operator of the scooter
  • Other pedestrians and bystanders

Liability for a pedestrian accident is based on negligence. It may also be based on defective product laws. We determine how to claim compensation and what you may receive for your injury.
