Common Causes of Scooter Accidents

Since e-scooters can travel up to 15 mph, a collision with an object or another vehicle can result in serious injury. Similar to motorcycle and bicycle accidents, e-scooter riders do not have the same amount of protection as drivers in motor vehicles. In addition, adult riders are not required to wear a safety helmet when using an e-scooter, which increases the chances of serious injury.

The following are the most common causes of electronic scooter accidents:

  • Collisions with motor vehicles – Since scooters are small and are easily hidden from view by other objects, it could be difficult for drivers to see them. Because e-scooters can go up to 15 mph in speed, a driver may not have enough time to avoid a collision.
  • E-scooter malfunction – From brake or throttle failure to power issues and tire defects, malfunctions can occur. These e-scooter distributors are required to ensure their scooters are properly charged or maintained. Any malfunction caused by a defect can result in a product liability lawsuit.
  • Road hazards – Whether it’s a pothole or a large crack in the sidewalk, driving over or even avoiding road hazards can result in a crash. Even pedestrians on the street are hazards to e-scooters, especially those that don’t pay attention to their surroundings.
  • Rider error – Most of the users of these e-scooters are inexperienced because you don’t need a special license or training to ride them. Because of this, riders ten to engage in high-risk behavior or accidentally hit the brakes at high speeds.
