Rhode Island Personal Injury Lawyer Practice: Electric Scooter Claims And Electric Bike Claims
November 7th, 2018
Have you noticed that massive for-profit electric scooter companies, Bird and Lime, have invaded Providence, Rhode Island lately? Our personal injury firm is investigating and actively taking personal injury claims involving Rhode Island personal injuries from scooter use.
Bird and Lime Scooters and Bikes: Backed by Big Money Across The Country And Now In Rhode Island
Electric scooters and electric bikes are big business. According to a recent article on investors.com, investors have already poured hundreds of millions of dollars into Bird and Lime, electric bike and scooter companies now valued at over $1 billion.
The big money has propelled the companies to aggressively place their products in cities nationwide. Recently, these electric scooters and electric bikes have been placed in Providence, Rhode Island and we expect them to be placed in nearby cities such as Pawtucket, Warwick, Newport and other locales soon.
There are many safety problems known to be associated by electric scooters and bikes, speeds of which approach 15 miles per hour in congested urban areas.
At the Bottaro Law Firm, we are already documenting accounts of serious personal injuries. Just last month, personal injury lawyers filed a class action lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court on behalf of nine people injured by the electric scooters. According to the lawsuit as chronicled in the Providence Journal, two of the plaintiffs suffered from personal injuries by tripping over scooters left discarded on the sidewalk, and four were rammed into from behind as they were walking, including a 7-year-old boy who had to get his lip stitched back together and suffered from damage to eight of his front teeth.
An additional 75 people have contacted the personal injury lawyer since filing the lawsuit, including a 67-year-old man with a brain injury. Personal injury lawyers are examining the evidence, and alleging that these companies knew the scooters were dangerous and deployed them in a way that was certain to cause injuries.
