Electric Scooters coming to Seattle

As predicted, electric rental scooters are coming to Seattle. Although a convenient form of transportation, they do not come without risk. Other municipalities who have authorized the scooters have had problems with people suffering serious personal injuries while riding the scooters and/or being struck by someone riding a scooter. With no current helmet law applicable, no training or license required, it is likely Seattle will start to see people injured from these scooters as well.

The law regarding personal injury claims arising out of scooter use is unclear at this point. If you or someone you know is seriously injured while using a scooter or injured as the result of another person riding a scooter, please contact me to review and discuss your options for a potential personal injury claim.
