Seeking Legal Assistance for E-Scooter Injury Claims in Denver

August 17, 2023by Brett Buchheit

As e-scooters gain more and more popularity in Denver, so does the risk of accidents and personal injuries. If you’ve been involved in an e-scooter related incident due to someone else’s negligence or a defective scooter, it is crucial to understand your rights and seek legal representation.

As a trusted personal injury law firm in Denver, we specialize in e-scooter injury claims and are here to address frequently asked questions and guide you through the process under Colorado law. 

Who Is Liable in an E-Scooter Personal Injury Claim?

Liability in an e-scooter claim is determined based on the specific circumstances of the accident. Potential liable parties may include the e-scooter company, the scooter rider, other motorists, or even the manufacturer if a defect contributed to the accident.

An experienced personal injury lawyer will thoroughly investigate the incident, gather evidence, and determine the responsible parties in order to build a strong case on your behalf. 

What Should I Know Before Riding an E-Scooter in Colorado?

  • E-scooter riders must be at least 16 years of age. 
  • E-scooters can not be ridden on sidewalks unless you are on a designated bike route, are parking or just getting going before riding on the street. If riding on a sidewalk you must be going less than six MPH.
  • Riders must yield to pedestrians and follow all traffic laws.
  • E-scooters must have front and rear lights when operated after sunset. 
  • E-scooters should be parked upright and not obstruct pedestrian pathways.  

What Compensation Can I Seek in an E-Scooter Related Personal Injury Claim? 

You may be entitled to seek various types of compensation, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and rehabilitation costs.

The specific damages you can pursue depend on the extent of your injuries and the impact on your life. At RMPIL, we can evaluate your case, gather any necessary evidence, and seek the maximum compensation you deserve. 

Can I Still Pursue a Claim if I was Partially at Fault of an E-Scooter Accident?

Colorado follows a modified comparative negligence rule. This means that even if you were partially at fault, you may still be eligible for compensation. However, your recovery may be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you.

It’s crucial that you consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer who can assess the circumstances of the accident and guide you through the legal process to maximize your potential recovery.
