Scooter Accidents in Florida

St Petersburg, FL - Woman on Scooter Hurt in Crash at 1st Ave & 16th StBecause of their growing popularity in the United States, e-scooter-related accidents have increased significantly in recent years.

Any time a pedestrian accident takes place, the person on foot is going to suffer much more severe injuries. It is true that pedestrians are responsible for looking out for roadway hazards, but drivers also have a duty to avoid causing injury when behind the wheel of a car. In most cases, drivers fail to look out for those traveling on foot as they should. Injured pedestrians should consult with a St. Petersburg pedestrian injury lawyer immediately to protect their legal rights.
