E-scooters are an increasingly popular form of urban transport. If you are injured either as an e-scooter rider or as a pedestrian, our Bristol and London injury solicitors can help you navigate what is a new, complex and fast changing area of UK law.
You, e-scooter injuries
& Ince, in any case
If you live in any large city in the UK, you cannot help but notice the increased appearance on our roads of electric scooters (or e-scooters). As a result, we are now seeing an increase in accidents, injuries and even deaths involving e-scooter riders.
Our injury solicitors are already using our many years' experience in road traffic collisions to help those involved in e-scooter accidents get treatment, claim for financial losses and get injuries compensation.
Accidents involving e-scooters can cause injuries from broken bones through to life-altering head and brain injuries, and even loss of life. When something like this happens, it is important to ensure that you have a specialist, experienced injury solicitor to help you get the support, treatment and compensation you need to help you move forward with your life.
How to claim compensation for an e-scooter accident
We can help you navigate what is a new, complex and fast developing area of law. There are some significant legal differences covering official Government-sanctioned rental e-scooter schemes and privately-owned scooters. At this time, e-scooters are classified as motorised vehicles and are therefore subject to the same legal requirements as any other motor vehicle.
It is important to understand that privately-owned e-scooters are illegal for use on pavements and footpaths and can only be used on private land with the owner’s consent. Only official rented e-scooters can be ridden on the public highway, and anyone riding their own private e-scooter will be committing a criminal offence by using it on the road. Whilst official rented e-scooters will have insurance, private e-scooters may not.
If you are involved in an accident with an e-scooter, whether as a rider, another vehicle owner or a pedestrian, it may not be clear whether you can claim compensation and/or who you can claim against.
