Bird Scooter Accident Lawyer Miami, FL
If you’ve been injured in an incident involving an electric scooter, you’re not alone; as a Bird scooter accident lawyer Miami, FL residents trust can confirm, electric scooter accidents are becoming increasingly common. All over Florida, electric scooters can be found propped up in special racks and strewn on sidewalks where the last people to rent them set them aside wherever they chose to. These scooters are convenient and fun. Because they are easiest to enjoy in temperate climates, they have become particularly popular in states like Florida, where the weather tends to be relatively kind to those who enjoy the outdoors. However, these scooters are no match for distracted, drunk, or drowsy drivers. Also, they can malfunction, injuring riders through no fault of their owner. Finally, scooter riders may themselves be distracted and run into innocent passersby. Having an electric scooter around can unfortunately be a recipe for disaster.
Can I Sue if I’ve Been Injured in a Scooter Accident?
Generally speaking, U.S. law allows accident victims to sue for damages if the party or parties responsible for the harm they have suffered owed the accident victims a so-called legal duty of care under the law, breached that duty, and the victims suffered injury, property damage, or other financial loss as a result of that breach. With that said, every case is different. The details of an accident scenario “matter” when it comes to answering the question of whether a specific victim has grounds to file an insurance and/or legal claim against those responsible for the harm they’ve endured.
