Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Skip Scooter Lawyer

Skip scooters are yet another entrant into the burgeoning electric scooter market sweeping across cities in the United States. In contrast to several other brands, Skip scooters are lighter and, in some cases, faster. Most cities require electric scooter companies to software-limit the scooters to fifteen miles per hour, but software glitches can cause this maximum speed to increase to 20 miles per hour. Moving at higher speeds means more risk of an accident and more serious injuries.Skip Scooter Lawyer

In June 2019, Skip scooters made headlines when several of their e-scooters burst into flames, seemingly spontaneously. Electric scooters use dense lithium-ion batteries which are typically charged each night by independent agents. These batteries must hold a tremendous amount of energy in order to run a scooter for hours the following day. Speculation that Skip scooters used cheaper battery sources seemed to be confirmed when the batteries caught on fire.

Although no injuries were yet reported in connection to Skip scooter fires, these aren’t the only hazards associated with electric scooters. Skip scooter lawyers from Cohen & Cohen have seen numerous other e-scooter accidents caused when the structural integrity of the scooter fails during the ride. The vertical post which connects the handlebar to the base of the scooter can become worn and fragile, and if it fails, it can send a driver flying over the handlebars, causing serious injuries.

Accidents can also be caused by other defects, like worn tires, broken brakes, or cracked handlebars. Most electric scooter companies include a waiver of injuries in their terms and conditions, but this likely does not absolve them of responsibility if the scooter itself fails. Another rider may have previously crashed a scooter, resulting in structural damage that will not become evident until a later rider hits uneven pavement or leans too hard on the fragile structure. It is the responsibility of these companies to inspect their vehicles regularly in order to prevent these accidents.

Riders themselves are not the only ones who can be injured when an electric scooter malfunctions or breaks. Because many jurisdictions allow e-scooters on public sidewalks, a sudden structural failure could cause a rider to impact other pedestrians, sometimes at a high rate of speed. In these situations, the pedestrian also has a potential cause of action against the scooter company and should consult a Skip scooter lawyer to make sure their rights are protected. If the accident really was the result of Skip’s negligence, rather than any fault of the rider, both parties may be able to speak to the same Skip scooter lawyer, greatly reducing expenses and helping to hold the company accountable.

This was an awesome experience with Brittney Cassiere, Miriam Calisher, and my attorney Jill. What made me select Cohen & Cohen for my case, was my experience many years ago with Kim Brooks-Rodney. I definitely recommend anyone to use them. They have your best interest at hand.

I am very satisfied with the services provided by Cohen and Cohen. They were able to settle my case within less than a year and settled a fair amount in which I was expecting. They communicated very well throughout the process as well as made sure all boxes were checked off to ensure i received the best care and communication. I will recommend the services to anyone in these situations. Riley and Brittney were certainly very helpful during the process.

Lucas Baudry was my rep for this accident claim, and even though I had LOADS of questions and was a bit impatient, he was always responsive and quick to reply. We’re wrapping up now, and I really feel like he tried to have the best results in the end, and didn’t drag it out more than need be.
