When You Should Call Our Lancaster E-Scooter Accident Lawyers
In California cities such as Lancaster, electric scooter companies such as Bird, Lime, and Lyft have been marketing their electric scooters as an environmentally friendly and convenient way to make short trips in city areas. While electric scooters may be fun and eco-friendly, many riders are inexperienced or unfamiliar with operating the scooter, increasing the risk of accidents.
If a scooter rider crashes into a car or pedestrian at top speed—15 miles per hour—the results could be catastrophic. Additionally, many drivers are not accustomed to seeing electric scooters in Lancaster streets. If a car crashes into an electric scooter rider, both parties could be severely injured.
