E-scooters have been commonly used across several cities in California. Many regions approve of the idea of using an e-scooter as an easy method of transportation. It provides people with a convenient option if their destination is too far for a walk and too close to drive to. However, there are other cities that frown upon the idea of anyone using an e-scooter.
Within the past few years, there have been numerous reports of riders suffering serious injuries from an e-scooter accident. Furthermore, there have been e-scooter companies that have released defective e-scooters for public use.

E-scooter riders have the expectation to use a safe product to get to their destination. When they use an e-scooter, such as Bird or Lime, they are placing their trust in the company. If the company happens to conduct poor maintenance checks and releases defective products to the public, they will face harsh consequences for any injuries caused by their e-scooters.
If you were hurt due to your own negligent actions, then you will not be allowed to file a claim against the e-scooter company. An example of negligence could be a rider operating an e-scooter while under the influence of alcohol. The rider’s vision becomes impaired, which makes it difficult to see properly. The rider is unable to maintain control of their e-scooter, thus getting into an accident with an oncoming vehicle.
