Can I Sue if I’ve Been Hurt by an Electric Scooter
No two accidents are exactly the same. Therefore, there is no “one size fits all” answer to the question, “Can I file a lawsuit and/or collect on an insurance claim if I’ve been hurt by an electric scooter.” It’s ultimately important to speak with an attorney before making assumptions (for worse or for better) about your case. Where the law is concerned, details matter. Once we understand the details of your situation, we can explain the relative strengths and any potential weaknesses of your case.
Generally speaking, if you were not at fault for your accident or you were only partially at fault, you may be able to hold those who were responsible for the harm you suffered accountable for their behavior. Responsible parties may include the scooter rental agency, the scooter manufacturer, the scooter rider (if that person isn’t you), and/or someone who may have hit you while you were riding. If the responsible party owed you a so-called “duty of care” under the law and harmed you after breaching that duty, you will probably have strong grounds to file an insurance claim and/or lawsuit.
