Scooter Accidents

man riding an electric scooter down an alley | electric scooter accidents in DenverElectric scooters have come to Denver, and while they offer an excellent and economical way to get around town, they’re also dangerous. In fact, according to the Washington Post, the increasing number of electric scooter accidents on the roads qualifies as an emerging public safety crisis. These accidents are mainly caused by distracted and aggressive drivers on the road who often fail to recognize scooter riders in their path. When you consider that there are few experienced electric scooter riders and virtually none wear helmets, it’s not hard to understand why electric scooter accidents in Denver are on the rise. 

There are five major electric scooter companies in the United States: Bird, Lime, Jump, Skip, and Spin. Now, Uber and Lyft are also getting into the mix. Currently, Bird Rides and LimeBike are facing class action lawsuits accusing the startup companies of being grossly negligent. They’ve failed to consider the dangers for electric scooter riders when introducing these vehicles into cities. As a result, scooter riders are being hit by cars, which has resulted in severe injuries and even death. According to these lawsuits, safety instructions for scooter riders are also incomplete, further increasing the likelihood of serious and fatal accidents. 

What to Do If You Are Injured in an Electric Scooter Accident in Denver

In Denver, city officials have introduced electric scooters into the city with several new regulations and rules regarding where they can be parked and how they should be ridden. However, even when scooter riders follow the rules and use extra caution, accidents still occur. If you’re injured in an electric scooter accident in Denver, the steps you take immediately after can have a significant impact on your ability to collect the compensation you need. After your crash, consider the following steps:

  • Call 911
  • File a police report
  • Seek medical attention
  • Take pictures of the accident 
  • Gather “at fault” driver’s contact information
  • Collect eyewitness information
  • Call an experienced Denver scooter accident lawyer

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 -

Client

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!
