Dockless electric scooters have quickly become a common mode of transportation in Nashville. Seven scooter companies currently operate in Music City, including Bird, Lime, and Lyft. Together, they’ve brought 4,150 scooters to city streets. Electric scooters were intended to offer a convenient alternative to cars, but scooter-related injuries are on the rise. Residents and tourists should be aware of the dangers surrounding scooter use in highly trafficked areas.

According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), accidents involving electric scooters can cause broken bones, abrasions to the face and upper body, and even severe head trauma. These injuries can be serious, and they often result in medical bills some patients may not be able to afford. If you or a loved one was injured in a scooter accident due to someone else’s negligence, we want to help.

Nashville Scooter Laws

Electric scooters can reach speeds up to 20 MPH, making them much more dangerous than a foot-propelled scooter. In Nashville, users must follow basic safety precautions when riding an electric scooter to protect themselves and others.

• Operators must be 18 years or older and have a valid driver’s license.
• Scooters may not be ridden on the sidewalk in a business district, and riders must obey all rules of the road.
• Where sidewalk-riding is allowed, riders must give right of way to pedestrians.
• When not in use, scooters must be parked upright and out of right-of-way areas.

Understand Your Rights

Responsible parties may include:

• A rider
• A pedestrian or motorist
• The scooter company (in the case of a defective scooter)
• The city (in the case of dangerous road conditions)

    Ponce Law assisted me after a very serious motor vehicle injury. The process, in my opinion, was extremely easy from the get go. I was kept well informed along the way, especially by my paralegal, Jennie Williams. She also responded very urgently whenever I had a question. Also, last minute, attorney Hannah Jones jumped in to assist me with the end of the process and I was extremely pleased with her knowledge and professionalism.

    I reached out to Ponce Law when my significant other and I were involved in an accident and Progressive denied our claim. Spencer and Jamelia were awesome and very professional with assisting us. After going back and forth with Progressive we were finally able to settle our case. If you have any issues with accident claims please refer to this law office, and ask specifically for Spencer and Jamelia.

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
