Nashville Scooter Accident Lawyer

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 wreck due to someone else’s negligence, our personal injury attorneys want to help. Call to speak with a Nashville scooter accident lawyer about your legal rights and options.

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 the right of way to pedestrians.
• When not in use, scooters must be parked upright and out of right-of-way areas.
