One of the most common causes of scooter accidents is vehicle drivers not seeing a scooter rider. Because scooters are relatively new, many drivers are not used to seeing them on the roadways and fail to take appropriate precautions. When an electric scooter rider gets in an accident with another vehicle, they more often than not suffer serious injuries.
Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may have grounds to file a personal injury claim and seek compensation for your injuries and other damages associated with the accident. Keep reading to learn more.

Electric scooter accidents can be complicated, and determining liability can be challenging. The first step in determining liability is identifying what and/or who caused the accident. When it comes to scooter cases, there are several people and entities who may bear responsibility for the accident.
Here are some key points regarding liability in scooter accidents in Nevada:
Negligent Drivers: If a scooter accident occurs due to the negligence of a motor vehicle driver, such as distracted driving or failure to yield, the driver may be held responsible for the accident.
Scooter Riders: Scooter riders can also be held liable for injuries they cause to pedestrians or other vehicles if they were negligent in their actions, such as reckless riding or violating traffic laws.
Scooter Rental Companies: In cases where a malfunction or defect in the scooter leads to an accident, the scooter rental company or manufacturer might be held liable for the injuries and damages suffered by the rider.

Our attorneys are available to review your case. We are ready to help you determine who is liable for your injuries and if you have grounds to file a personal injury claim.
