Electric scooters (also known as E-scooters and "dockless scooters") are a new method of transportation made available in a majority of U.S. cities. E-scooter companies such as Lime and Bird have invested millions of dollars in e-scooter "pay-per-use" services as an alternative to walking to and from the office, school, or grocery store. E-scooters are designed to "fill the gap" between using a privately owned car and public transportation when traveling between home and work. E-scooters are a budget-friendly option compared pricier services such as Lyft or Uber.
However, electric scooters can reach speeds of up to 15 miles per hour, making them a danger to pedestrians and riders. Most states have passed laws that ban the use of electric scooters on sidewalks. However, electric scooter operators have to decide whether to ride illegally on sidewalks or put themselves in danger by integrating into the traffic flow. In either situation, someone may get badly injured or killed.
Emergency rooms are witnessing more and more individuals injured from e-scooter accidents — either from being struck by e-scooters or crashing on the e-scooters. Moreover, parking lots and public sidewalks are littered with these vehicles. Several cities have instituted bans on e-scooters in an attempt to restore order.

Scooter collision victims and their families are usually at a significant disadvantage after being involved in an e-scooter accident caused by a negligent driver or company. The initial few days following a e-scooter accident can be painful and emotionally overwhelming. Insurance companies understand how to capitalize on victims’ trust and their lack of experience and knowledge of the electric scooter accident claims process. The goal of insurance companies, as for-profit corporations, are to grow revenues and increase profitability by collecting monthly premiums while their representatives and claims adjusters work hard to delay, minimize claims or deny.
Insurance company representatives work for the insurance company, not for you, regardless of how polite they seem. In fact, insurance accident claims representatives often attempt to record telephone calls when speaking to e-scooter accident victims or their families in an attempt to solicit information they can later use against the claimants. Some insurance representatives even use those recorded statements out of context in order to accomplish this goal. As a result, some injury victims who directly communicate with insurance carriers, or submit to recorded statements to the adjusters without a lawyer present unwittingly jeopardize the value of their claims. Another frequent mistake made by electric scooter accident victims is resolving their case before knowing the full extent of their personal injuries. Consequently, accident insurance companies do not want you to communicate with or retain an experienced personal injury attorney, because their own industry research shows that they statistically pay out much more monetary compensation to accident claimants who retain an attorney than those who do not.
One study conducted by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) showed that:
For these reasons alone, having experienced legal representation by your side in your e-scooter accident case can significantly increase your prospects of success in obtaining the monetary compensation you deserve.
Our attorneys understand what is necessary to hold negligent drivers accountable by making sure, when appropriate, that crucial accident evidence, such as camera footage, and other evidence, is protected. We navigate the e-scooter accident claims process so that our clients can focus on healing and families of those tragically killed in a e-scooter crash can focus on rebuilding their lives.
While many e-scooter collision cases eventually settle out of court, when litigation is required, plaintiff lawyers must have a mastery of the evidentiary rules, court rules, rules of civil procedure, case law, and applicable Federal and state statutes and case law that could apply. Our lawyers are experienced with the nuances of the law and how to navigate the complicated claims process and civil court system. Our legal professionals work hard on behalf of each client in order to maximize their financial recovery in accordance with federal and state law, and when appropriate, take such cases through litigation and ultimately to trial when necessary to protect our clients’ rights.

WARNING: Failing to comply with a statute of limitations will permanently bar your right to compensation
The statute of limitations for personal injury cases and wrongful death cases in most states is about two years from the date of the e-scooter accident, but there are exceptions that can greatly shorten or even lengthen the deadline! By way of example only, certain types of accident claims against governmental entities as well as claims against the Federal Government can have much shorter deadlines. In some cases, a combination of different types of legal claims may exist that involve different time frames, which may be due to multiple defendants and/or even the laws of more than one jurisdiction. Statutes of limitation also vary from state to state. Our experienced e-scooter attorneys can examine the facts and circumstances relevant to your case to determine which statute of limitations (deadlines) apply. We take the required actions to preserve all important legal deadlines on behalf of our clients.
In addition to legal time deadlines, there are several other reasons not to delay in seeking legal advice and assistance. Many injured people are surprised to learn that their own insurance policies (or depending on the facts, sometimes those owned by household family members) can contain valuable insurance coverage, such as, by way of example only, Medical Pay ("MedPay), Personal Injury Protection ("PIP"), or Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage. It is critical to keep in mind that insurance policies typically have timely notification deadlines, which, if allowed to lapse, can result in a denial of coverage.
There is more! In addition to notice requirements and legal time deadlines, there are other reasons to act without delay. For example, with the passage of time witnesses can become difficult to locate, or they can forget important details. Other times, important evidence can be destroyed or disappear. You should not delay in seeking legal assistance as you have a limited amount of time to pursue your claim.
Our e-scooter Accident Lawyers at Montlick & Associates review all applicable avenues of financial recovery and ensure that any relevant contractual and legal notification deadlines are met. Our legal professionals also act to protect important evidence and interview witnesses when appropriate. Do not delay in protecting your valuable legal rights and contact Montlick & Associates today.

E-scooter accident laws generally allow accident victims to recover financial damages from those responsible for their injuries or the tragic death of their loved ones. Our attorneys pursue all types of economic damages to which our clients are entitled according to state law.
Some examples of the types of damages Plaintiffs can pursue may include the following:
The value of a personal injury claim depends on numerous factors, including, by way of example:
The amount of economic damages an e-scooter accident victim might recover is specific to the facts and circumstances of a given case. As such, each individual claim is unique. Predicting the precise dollar amount you and your family could recover from an accident claim is generally not possible at the beginning stages of your case. However, our lawyers are able to counsel and advise our clients on the range of predicted e-scooter accident case values, once all of the crucial evidence has been collected, we understand the extent and long-term effects of the injury or injuries, we have reviewed all medical expenses and records, and have evaluated the applicable, state and federal laws, and the strength of the evidence.
Our E-scooter Attorneys fight hard on behalf of each individual client to maximize the monetary value of their claims in accordance with local, state, and federal law.

Montlick & Associates- Fighting Hard & Winning Cases™ since 1984.
Our Promise to You
1. Treat your case as if it were our own. We'll treat you the same way we would want to be treated – as if it were our own case, or the case of a close friend or family member.
2. Protect you from powerful insurance companies. One of the first things the insurance adjuster will typically say is that you do not need an attorney. That's because the insurance company's goal is to pay you as little money as possible. And they know that injured people get substantially more money with an attorney representing them. With over 38 years of experience dealing with insurance companies, we can help you navigate through the insurance company minefields and avoid any traps.
3. Analyze your case at no charge to you. We'll evaluate your situation and advise you how to best protect your rights, at no charge to you. We invite you to call us 24 hours a day, including weekends and holidays to request a free consultation with one of our experienced personal injury lawyers. Or use our 24/7 online chat right here on our website.
4. Vigorously fight on your behalf in order to obtain all the compensation and benefits you deserve. There's always a lot at stake after a serious injury, and when our clients rely on us for help, we never take that situation lightly. We work extremely hard, and we will always do the right thing when it comes to our clients.
5. Give your case our personal attention. We tell our clients: "We want you to concentrate on getting well. We want to hear from you if you have any questions or concerns. We work for you, not the other way around."
6. Promptly return phone calls and keep you informed. We are sure you've heard about professionals who do not return phone calls. Or, perhaps you have spoken to people using other law firms who never knew what was going on with their case. That won't happen with us. We keep our clients well informed of important developments and routinely send copies of correspondence regarding their case.
7. Be there for you when you need us most. When our clients first call us after a serious injury, they're understandably really worried. And we say to them, "You don't have to do this alone." We'll take on the insurance company for you and help you get the money you deserve for your medical treatments, lost wages, car repairs and pain and suffering. That's the kind of help we've been giving for over 38years.
8. Always treat you with dignity and respect. Our promise is to operate at all times with honesty, integrity, high moral character and unquestionable ethics. And we'll treat you with kindness and give you and your family the dignity and respect that you deserve.
