Scooter Accidents Injury Lawyer
Getting around on busy metropolitan streets has never been easier with the introduction of rental scooters. However, it’s never been more dangerous, both for riders and nearby pedestrians, too. Bird, Jump and Lime are three companies that have arrangements with large cities all over North America and Europe to provide access to rental scooters. Atlanta is currently the only city in Georgia to have the service.
Commuters simply download the app from one of these companies, find a nearby scooter for rent, pay the fee online and off they go to their destination. The idea is to provide easy, cheap and quick transport to reduce the number of cars on the road. While the theory may be sound, in practice, injuries from both riders and pedestrians are becoming more common. If you have been injured in a Bird, Jump or Lime scooter accident, call Stockbridge attorney Darrell T. Farr for legal representation.
Atlanta Scooter Personal Injury Accidents
Bird, Jump and Lime scooters can cause serious injuries, including broken bones, lacerations, head trauma, spinal injuries and even death. In fact, after four scooter riders were killed by drivers, the mayor of Atlanta imposed a 9 pm to 4 am curfew against scooters beginning on August 9, 2019. Prospective riders are subject to no training and few safety instructions before renting a scooter and heading off into traffic.
