Razor Scooter Lawyers

Anyone who grew up in the 90s and 2000s will be familiar with Razor scooters. For teenagers at the turn of the 21st century, having the lightweight aluminum scooter that could fold up easily was a major status symbol. The smooth polyurethane wheels, simple foot-operated spoon brake, and foam-wrapped handlebars all combined to give a smooth ride that was great for getting around or performing tricks.

The Razor company also began manufacturing electric scooters in 2003, but they failed to gain the Razor Scooter Lawyerssame popularity as their unpowered predecessors. However, thanks to the boom in dockless vehicle-sharing now permitted in numerous American cities, Razor’s new and improved line of dockless rentable electric scooters are now appearing all over Washington, DC.

Razor e-scooters are rented in much the same way as their competitors, but they have a few different features. The large wheels are air-pumped, intending to give a smoother ride than certain solid-wheeled competitors, and they navigate hazards more easily. The standing platform is much wider than alternatives, allowing a rider to stand with both feet together rather than having one behind another. Most significantly, however, Razor scooters boast a bicycle-like seat for riders on a raised post at the rear of the scooter.

This critical distinction may have unintended consequences for riders in Washington, DC. Most e-scooters are ridden on the sidewalk, but this not always legal. The District typically recognizes just three classes of vehicles for the purposes of where a rider can be: bicycles, motor vehicles, and Personal Mobility Devices (PMDs). Bicycle riders have the widest latitude for where they can be. If there is no bike lane present, cyclists can choose between riding on the sidewalk, following pedestrian rules, or riding on the open roadway, following the same rules as motor vehicles. If there is a bike lane, it must be used. Cohen & Cohen

Personal Mobility Devices include powered single-axis vehicles like monowheels and Segways, as well as most electric scooters and electric skateboards. These can be operated on sidewalks or in certain bike lanes. However, if a vehicle has two inline wheels (one behind the other), it is only considered a PMD if it lacks a seat. “Pedal-assist” bicycles, with electric motors that can push the bike over 20 mph, are classified along with motorcycles as motor vehicles and cannot be used on sidewalks or in bike lanes.

The large Razor electric scooters have seats, which may cause them to be classified along with motorcycles in certain circumstances or in certain parts of the District. Accordingly, riders should seek the advice of a Razor scooter lawyer to determine what their options are and how to be protected in an accident.

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.
