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)

    Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

    I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!

    After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
