Bird Scooter Accidents

Spend time in any major metro area, and chances are, you’ll see a Bird electric scooter zipping past you on the road. With black frames and “BIRD” sprawled in capital letters, these vehicles are easily recognizable. In cities with lots of traffic and limited parking, they’ve become a staple.

However, these scooters are the subject of controversy, as related injuries continue to pile up. According to a recent study, accidents involving electric scooters nearly doubled from 2017 to 2018. Due to their small stature and lack of protective features, Bird scooters are dangerous to operate. As ridership booms and necessary infrastructure lags behind, accidents are bound to continue to rise in frequency.

If you were injured in an accident due to a faulty scooter or another driver’s negligence, you may be able to recover financial compensation with the help of a Morgan & Morgan Bird scooter lawyer. Read on to find out how we can help.

FAQ

Morgan & Morgan

  • Causes of Bird Scooter Accidents

    Bird scooters are marketed as an eco-friendly alternative to driving. Because of their convenience — they can generally be rented on an app for a low cost — they’re surging in popularity. Yet riding these scooters comes with certain risks:

    • Scooter Malfunction: For the vehicle to work as intended, several parts must be working correctly. Poorly maintained and defective scooters are major contributors to accidents. Generally, Bird scooters are rented “as is,” despite any damage that may have occurred during a previous rider’s journey.
    • Collisions: Bird scooters can travel upwards of 19 miles per hour, which is fast enough to cause serious injury in a collision. This is particularly true if the rider isn’t wearing a helmet.
    • Driver Error: Many drivers refuse to share the road with scooters. Distracted driving is also a common cause of accidents.
    • Road Hazards: Uneven surfaces, debris, and potholes pose potential hazards for riders.
    • Inexperience: Scooter riding experience isn’t necessary to rent a Bird vehicle, nor is a license required to operate it.
  • Liability in Bird Scooter Accidents

    “Negligence” is the legal term for liability in an accident. This may apply to poorly maintained or faultily manufactured equipment, or neglect on the part of other vehicle operators. If you believe you were the victim of someone else’s negligence, you might be wondering how to go about proving it. Broadly speaking, you’ll need to satisfy a few criteria:

    • The other driver was responsible for operating their vehicle safely (duty of care).
    • They breached their duty of care.
    • Their breach was responsible for the accident.
    • You suffered losses as a result of their actions.

    As an injury victim, you may be able to recover compensation including:

    • Past, current, and future medical expenses
    • Lost wages
    • Diminished earning capacity
    • Pain and suffering
    • Emotional distress
    • And more

Morgan and Morgan is truly the best law firm! PERIOD! You could consider yourself blessed when they take your case. Immediately, you can breathe. Anxiety goes from a 10 to 0! I needed them 3 TIMES! I wish I didn’t have to hire an attorney but my family and I were blessed. We won every single time! Insurance companies truly know that they will take it to court! I got settlements for all 3 lawsuits. Never stepped a foot into a courtroom. Thank you so much Morgan & Morgan!
