Scooter Accident & Injury Attorneys
Dock-less and electric scooters are now a main form of transportation "for the last mile" of one's trip. Scooter companies such as Lime, Bolt, and Bird are now commonplace throughout Florida. Because of the unfamiliarity with these devices, these scooters have become the subject of several severe accidents. These accidents can be caused by the negligence of either (1) drivers of automobiles or (2) the scooters themselves when they are not maintained properly by the rental companies (Common examples are low braking power or steering malfunctions). The most common injuries can range from neck and back pain, and broken bones to catastrophic injuries including spinal cord injuries (paraplegia and quadriplegia), brain damage, and even death.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a scooter accident, it is important that you seek medical treatment immediately. Your health is your and our number one priority. Oftentimes, injuries that result from scooter accidents do not manifest until days later. As such, seeking medical treatment immediately after an accident, even if you feel as though you are not injured, is a good idea. The following list are some actions you may want to take after an accident:
- Call 911 in the event that anyone involved in the accident is in need of medical attention.
- Use your cell phone to take pictures of the accident scene, the vehicles involved in the accident, the scooter, and any visible injuries that you have sustained.
- Write down as much information as you can about the involved vehicles and drivers in the accident. Most importantly, remember to take down the involved drivers contact, insurance and license plate information.
- Seek medical treatment and be honest with your doctors about how you feel and the symptoms that you may have.
- Do not speak with anyone about the auto accident, except your doctors.
- Call the attorneys of Parafinczuk Wolf Susen for a free consultation.
