Traumatic Brain Injuries and Electric Scooter Accidents

Unfortunately, electric scooter accidents are unfortunately hurtling more people each year. Electric scooter-related accidents have risen by 222% in 2020 from 4,021 in 2020 to 14,656 in 2020. Motorcycle-related accidents also rise sharply, with a whopping 36% increase in the number of motorcycle-related fatalities in the same period. Electric scooters are vehicles that millions of Americans use on a daily basis. Because of this, they are extremely vulnerable to accidents involving other motor vehicles, because most accidents involving motorcycles involve an automobile.

Most of the time, the injured driver of an electric scooter accident will not suffer any visible injuries. They will usually only suffer bruising or minor lacerations. If there are noticeable fractures, however, the extent of the injuries will vary greatly. A severe head injury can cause death within several hours, while moderate and minor injuries can take a long time to heal. Therefore, it is essential that anyone involved in an accident with an electric scooter to be aware of their rights and their legal standing.

An essential right for any victim of an accident involving an electric scooter is to have his or her head examined by a licensed medical examiner as soon as possible after the accident. If there are no visible fractures on the head, the doctor may also order tests to see if the injury to the skull is consistent with a blow to the head. This test can reveal a number of factors, such as brainstem lesions, hemorrhaging, and other internal damage that might not otherwise be seen. If the doctor determines that the injury is consistent with a head injury, the victim should seek immediate treatment and should be monitored closely for days afterward. While there is currently no definite way to determine the likelihood of an electric scooter accident resulting in brain stem damage, it is generally safe to assume that many such injuries will result in severe and long-term consequences.

Another essential legal right for victims of electric scooter accidents is to claim compensation for pain and suffering. In California, the rules for personal injury claims regarding pain and suffering apply to all types of personal injuries, regardless of whether they were caused by the negligence of the insured or the recklessness of the operator. (The exception to the rule concerning pain and suffering is if the victim was confined to a wheelchair at the time of the accident and the injury caused by his or her mobility permanently.) The injured person is entitled to compensation for lost wages, medical bills, disfigurement, permanent brain injury, and funeral expenses. If the victim is able to prove that the negligent party was aware of the danger posed by the vehicle and failed to take reasonable steps to prevent it, he or she may be entitled to punitive damages as well.

Both the operator and the owner of the motorized vehicle should be held responsible for their actions. For example, it is unlawful to operate an electric scooter while under the influence of alcohol or another intoxicating substance. Similarly, operators should not drive or operate a moped, power scooter, or toy scooter while using a cell phone or other wireless device. There are also special laws regarding the use of hand held cell phones to assist people with mobility disabilities. If you or someone you know has been injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident caused by a defective scooter, it is important to consult an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

In jurisdictions where motorized scooters are legal, there are many different types of electric scooter accidents that may result in compensation for the injured rider or the property damaged. One type of injury that can result from a scooter mishap is a whiplash injury. People who have been riding electric scooters for any period of time may develop whiplash after being thrown off the scooters. To determine if a rider has developed a whiplash injury, medical experts must examine him or her under a special microscope to determine the extent of the damage to the neck muscles.

Abnormal bone fractures can also occur as a result of an accident involving an electric scooter. These bone fractures often occur in areas of the lower back and the arms. Abnormal fractures of the vertebrae can result in debilitating and sometimes fatal spinal cord injuries. It is very important to consult with an experienced attorney specializing in traumatic brain injuries and other types of injuries as soon as possible following an accident. The sooner victims seek medical attention, the more effective their recovery.
