Bird scooters can be incredibly dangerous

Electric scooters like the one’s Bird has throughout the city of St. Louis can be convenient when used properly. However, Bird scooters can also be dangerous. Emergency room doctors throughout the United States have sounded the alarms in cities where Bird scooters have become popular. These electric scooters have caused injuries to different types of people, including:

  • Bird scooter riders with little experience
  • Bird scooter riders struck by vehicles
  • Pedestrians struck by Bird scooter riders
  • Pedestrians tripping over discarded Bird scooters

Injuries caused by Bird scooter accidents can be severe. Some of the most common injuries the St. Louis bird scooter accident attorneys at Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C. have seen from these incidents include:

Who pays for the damages in a Bird scooter accident case?

Establishing liability for a Bird scooter accident can be complicated. Whether they know it or not, riders generally agree that they themselves are responsible for any injuries or damages they incur in an incident involving a Bird scooter. By using the Bird app and signing in to use a scooter, users automatically assume liability for injuries.

Bird scooter riders who cause their own injuries may have to fall back on their own personal health insurance policies to get treatment for their injuries. A bird does have insurance that offers coverage if an accident and injuries occur due to a faulty or defective scooter. This includes coverage for injured riders as well as any bystander that may be injured due to the defective scooter.

However, if a careless or negligent driver crashes into a Bird scooter rider, then that driver’s auto insurance carrier should be responsible for paying any damages related to the incident. This will require the injured scooter rider filing a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier (or file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver).

For non-riders who are injured due to the negligent actions of a Bird scooter rider, they may be able to recover compensation through a personal injury lawsuit against the rider.
