Emily Hartridge Dies in Electric Scooter AccidentThis month, YouTube personality Emily Hartridge died in a tragic accident. She was just 35-years-old. According to the Guardian, Hartridge was involved in a fatal scooter accident after being hit by a truck. She was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. This was Britain’s first fatal collision involving an electric scooter. 

Hartridge rose to popularity on her YouTube page where she often posted videos in listicle form, such as “Top 10 Reasons Why…” Her topics ranged from personal pieces regarding her sexuality and her mental health to funnier public videos about sex, relationships, and life. Her last video was titled “10 Reasons to Get a Younger Boyfriend” and it was based on her own personal life experiences. 

Hartridge had a large public following on multiple social media sites, including Instagram where she had more than 70k followers. Her followers mourned her passing publicly and by all accounts, this was a tragedy that should’ve never occurred. 

Electric Scooters can be Dangerous

Electric scooters can go as fast as 15 mph, and no one wears helmets when riding them. In fact, just 4% of riders wear a helmet. This makes them an extremely dangerous form of transportation. 

A study published in JAMA found that 250 people ended up in emergency rooms in Los Angeles in 2017. The most common injuries were to rider’s heads, with more than 40% sustaining a brain injury. Two of those riders sustained such severe injuries that they had to be taken to the ICU. 

When Portland, Oregon began tracking their electric scooter injuries, they found that during a four-month period, scooter accidents caused more than 176 emergency room visits. 83% of these accidents resulted from a rider falling off the scooter and suffering an injury. Only 6 of those accidents occurred to a rider wearing a helmet. 16% of those scooter accidents involved a drunk rider. 

If you are considering riding an electric scooter in Denver, it is important to understand the dangers and take necessary safety precautions. Always wear a helmet and obey all scooter speed limits. 

If you are injured in an accident with another driver, it is important to speak to an experienced and skilled Denver scooter accident lawyer immediately. Your lawyer can help you obtain the compensation you need to pay for medical bills and lost wages after an injury accident.

I have worked with Greg Gold and his attorneys on a number of personal injury cases for our clients. His law firm is very creative and extremely talented. I would recommend him to anyone dealing with a car accident, insurance dispute, or catastrophic injury claim.

Jessica Yates -


The Gold Law Firm and Greg took on my unique case when no one else would. They were amazing through the whole process. Making sure we clearly understood everything. Always taking extra time to answer all our questions. In the end we got justice! I just learned that now they have a special victims unit, and it warms my heart to know that someone is there for those unique victims.

Janet Christensen -


This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!

Cannot speak highly enough about the Gold Law Firm. My case was turned over to them when the original firm and the insurance firm reached an impasse. Michael took on the case and stuck with it until an additional settlement was reached. My children have a stress free start in life thanks to the efforts of the Gold Law Firm.
