Legal Assistance for Scooter Injuries in Chicago

A serious injury can change your life forever, especially one that is completely unexpected. Electronic scooters have recently hit the streets of Chicago and may be here to stay. Though brand new to the Chicagoland area, dockless scooters have been circulating city streets and college campuses for over two years.

Chicago residents are in the midst of an e-scooter four-month trial in which the city is testing the value of dockless scooters on its streets. The potential financial gain as well as the convenience that it provides riders has brought this successful "joy-ride" to the Windy City.

Due to its sense of novelty, many people have overlooked the danger that these scooters pose to Chicagoans. Other large cities that have had the scooters for a period of time have spoken about the risks associated with them. After a short four-month period, a Salt Lake City hospital cited a 161% increase in the number of visits involving scooters.

There have been common injury themes recognized as more e-scooters join the streets, including:

  • Fractures and dislocations of bones such as ankles, wrists, elbows, nose and shoulders;
  • Head injuries including lacerations and fractures of the skull, face, and neck;
  • Nerve, tendon, or ligament injuries; and
  • Severe bleeding.

These injuries do not only happen to those riding the scooters, but also innocent pedestrians walking down the street. Whether the device itself is defective, the rider loses control or is struck by a vehicle, no one should sustain serious injuries while on their commute.
