What kind of scooters are in Seattle?

You may have heard horror stories coming from other major US cities as electric scooters have moved into their area. Two of the biggest names in the electric scooter business are Bird and Lime scooters, but there are several others.

Guess what?

Electric scooters are going to be on the streets of Seattle. Just like most other major American cities, we will now have to contend with these devices. For the latest reporting year in Washington, there were over 2,500 pedestrians affected in various accidents – 109 people died in pedestrian incidents.

Do electric scooters cause serious injuries?

Yes, electric scooters have been responsible for many serious injuries and even fatalities throughout the United States. It is not uncommon for us to see the following injuries as a result of electric scooter incidents:

  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations or amputations
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Traumatic brain injuries/head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries

Where do most electric scooter accidents happen?

While we do not yet have solid numbers about electric scooter injuries from around the US, we know they happen. The CDC has even begun to study the rates of these incidents. We know that three groups of people are at most risk of injury:

  1. Inexperienced electric scooter riders
  2. Pedestrians around electric scooter riders
  3. Pedestrians who could trip over discarded scooters

Most of these incidents happen on sidewalks and in the roadway.

What you can do following a scooter accident

As with any accident, please seek medical assistance immediately for any injuries you have sustained. If possible, document the scene with your smartphone or ask someone else to do so. Be sure the incident is reported to police so an accident report can be completed.

A Seattle electric scooter accident attorney can help you gather evidence and will work directly with the insurance companies.
