Scooter Accidents in Florida
E-scooter-related accidents have grown dramatically in recent years as a result of their rising popularity in the United States. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, e-scooter accidents resulted in over 50,000 emergency room visits between 2017 and 2019. These accidents resulted in the deaths of 27 persons, demonstrating a considerable rise in injuries and fatalities.
In the event of a crash, someone riding a scooter is likely to have far more serious injuries. It is true that everyone on the road is responsible for keeping an eye out for potential risks on the road. However, drivers also have a responsibility to prevent injuring others when operating a vehicle. In most situations, drivers fail to keep an eye out for scooter riders, and those who have been injured should get legal advice as soon as possible to safeguard their legal rights.
