Who Can Be Held Liable for a Bird Scooter Accident?

Figuring out liability and bringing a claim against the correct party may be the most difficult part of your Bird scooter accident claim. Unless you are familiar with the nuances of Virginia’s liability laws, it could be an uphill challenge to create a claim against the right party. Thankfully, you can remove any guesswork from your claim by letting our Virginia Bird scooter accident lawyers handle everything for you.

Parties who could be liable for your Bird scooter accident and resulting injuries may include:

  • Bird scooter company: For many Bird scooter accidents reported in the news, the scooter company itself seems to be at-fault for peoples’ injuries. Defects with the scooters, like faulty brakes, tires, and handlebars, can cause a rider to lose control and crash. There is also a matter of liability caused by the company freely renting out scooters that can travel up to 20 miles per hour on flat roads to anyone without offering any training or safety equipment. The company also does not have a safety net in place to ensure people are not tampering with Bird scooters left on the street.
  • Motorist: Drivers need to share the road with scooter riders as they would any other type of pedestrian transportation. Failing to do so could cause a crash with a Bird rider that was not the rider’s fault. The man in Dallas who lost his life is believed to have been hit by a vehicle that fled the scene, but it has not been confirmed.
  • Rider: We can also help you with a Bird scooter accident claim if you were struck by a negligent Bird scooter rider. As aforementioned, riders get no training before being able to use a scooter. They may have no control of their vehicle and crash into you. People across the country have been hit while they were walking down the sidewalk, crossing the street, exiting storefronts, and so on.
