Rental Electric Scooter Accident Lawyer in DC
Washington, DC Injury Attorneys Serving the Metro Area
Washington, DC has a reputation for embracing new transportation programs and technology, which is why it was the first city in the U.S. and North America to introduce a bikeshare program. Over the years, new startups have expanded on the concept of bikesharing and ridesharing (i.e. Uber and Lyft) by offering similar services that allow customers to find, unlock, and rent electric scooters with the use of an app. Their popularity and convenience may be welcomed by many in the city, but their novelty, higher speeds, and skyrocketing use by unsafe and negligent riders also make them serious hazards.
As rental e-scooters from companies like Bird, Lime, Skip, and a growing list of other startups become more common in the District, and expand into Maryland and Virginia, our legal team at Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. is prepared to help victims whose affordable and purportedly fun rides don’t end as planned. Backed by decades of combined experience and led by Board Certified Civil Trial Specialists, our attorneys have the resources to help victims protect their rights after suffering injuries and losses in all types of scooter accidents.

Electric Scooters & Preventable Accidents
Personal injury law is a legal area in which victims harmed by the negligent and wrongful acts of others can bring forth their claims and hold at-fault parties financially responsible for the damages they cause. This includes economic and non-economic damages like medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering, which can quickly pile up and create profound setbacks for victims and their families.
While civil personal injury lawsuits provide a pathway to justice and compensation, there are challenges that can stand in the way of justice. These include not only issues involving powerful insurance companies and corporations with the deep pockets needed to fight claims, deny liability, and underpay or defeat victims, but also complexities created by just how new these electric scooter companies and their services are. By working with a proven team of attorneys, victims can navigate these hurdles and pursue the financial recoveries they deserve.
Our firm handles all types of accident cases involving electric scooters, including:
- Scooter riders injured in car accidents involving negligent drivers
- Riders harmed by negligent pedestrians or property owners
- Accidents involving commercial trucks or buses (public and government operated)
- Pedestrians or bicyclists struck by scooter riders
- Defective products, poorly maintained, or malfunctioning rental scooters
- Accidents caused by abandoned scooters, including trip and fall accidents
- Scooter riders injured as a result of roadway defects
