Los Angeles E-Scooter Injury Lawyers
Motorized bikes and scooters are popular in California, but they can also be very dangerous. Along with the increase in their use, severe accidents and serious injuries are also on the rise. As a firm dedicated to personal injury law, Law Offices of John C. Ye, A Professional Law Corporation has recovered over $300 million in settlements for clients, and we can help you.
Everyone Is At Risk
Just like motorcycles, drivers may not see bikes, scooters and mopeds before it is too late. Inexperienced or reckless drivers may hit a pedestrian while trying to ride on the sidewalk. Persons walking on the sidewalk may trip on scooters that have fallen over. Poor road maintenance can cause driving hazards. If another passenger is sitting on the handlebars or hanging on behind the driver, it adds to the danger and possibility of injury.
Identifying The Negligent Party
The negligent party is the one liable for the accident. We listen to your story and identify who is responsible for compensation for your accident. It could be:
- The scooter rental company
- The automobile driver
- The Department of Transportation
- The scooter driver
While motorized bikes and scooters do not need DMV registration, mopeds do, and drivers of them must have a license specifically for motorcycles. California law requires insurance coverage for mopeds, but not for motorized bikes and scooters. Our lawyers know how to analyze your case and develop a winning strategy.

Electronic Scooter Accidents and Injuries
Electronic scooters provide an easy way to get around the city and can be a lot of fun to ride, but they can also be very dangerous. Those who decide to use one of the e-scooters will want to make sure they’re aware of how to ride safely, but in case anything does happen, it’s a good idea to also be aware of how to get help. Read below to learn more about these types of accidents and what to do if you are injured while riding an e-scooter.
Renting an Electronic Scooter
Renting an electric scooter is simple and inexpensive. It’s possible to find scooters throughout the city since they don’t require docks. Rides can start at a dollar, so anyone can rent one easily and cheaply to get where they need to go. This is part of what makes them such an attractive option. They don’t require any special technique to use and can be used throughout the city. Those who have never used one before will want to start slow and get the hang of it, but it won’t take long to do. The most important thing to remember is to be careful when riding through the city.
The problem with electric scooters is the potential for injuries. Unsafe use can lead to serious accidents. This includes riding too fast, swerving around corners, riding the scooter while distracted, or failing to pay attention to traffic signals and crossing the road without looking. Inattentive or negligent drivers can also be a cause of accidents. When riding in the road or crossing the road, it’s possible to end up being hit by a driver who isn’t paying attention. Like when riding a bicycle or standard scooter, an accident with a vehicle is likely to lead to serious injuries.
