Bolt Scooter Lawyers

A recent entrant into the electric scooter market comes in the form of Bolt, a company founded by Olympian Usain Bolt that is currently distributing e-scooters in cities like Washington DC. Unlike most alternatives, Bolt scooters are free to unlock, generating fees based only on the amount of time they are ridden. Also unlike alternatives already on the market, they have unique butterfly-folding footrests Bolt Scooter Lawyersaround a sturdy central chassis, producing an extremely low center of gravity and a generally more stable ride.

Riders can avoid hazards by exercising care and caution while riding. Bolt recommends that all users wear protective helmets, though in practice few do.  Anyone using an electric scooter should examine local ordinances to determine whether the scooter should properly be used on sidewalks, bicycle lanes, or roadways. Riding an electric scooter in an unlawful fashion may result not only in citations or fines, but in a loss of a claim in an accident.

In order to avoid accidents, riders should be aware of their surroundings at all times. It is dangerous (and poor riding etiquette) to ride with headphones or talk on a cellphone while riding. Users should avoid making sudden changes in direction or pulling off into the street abruptly. Because the scooters are all-electric and mostly silent, pedestrians may not realize that a scooter is approaching and can step suddenly into its path. Accordingly, riders should be prepared to slow down when approaching pedestrians if they are operating their scooter on a sidewalk.

Intersections are another area where collisions are not only more likely, but far more severe. A scooter rider is completely unprotected in an accident involving a large motor vehicle, so it is critical to use caution. Crossing only with lights and keeping a lookout for turning vehicles can help to avoid a serious or even fatal crash. When a crash does happen, a Bolt scooter lawyer can help piece together what happened and ensure that the rider’s rights are protected.

Before using a Bolt scooter, riders should inspect it carefully to make certain there are no defects or problems which may make it unsafe. The front-wheel should turn smoothly and easily, without grinding or catching at any point. The post for the handlebars should be firmly seated without any give or flexibility. The petal footrests should both extend the same distance without bending or angling below a level plane, and both wheels should appear to have the same level of inflation. Riders should look for signs that the vehicle has been in an accident, like dents, excessive scuffing, or a warped frame. It is never safe to assume that a scooter has not been in an accident, as some accidents may go unreported.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
