E-Scooter Accidents Are a Reminder to Stay Alert When Traveling — Even on Sidewalks, says Legal Defenders at the Law Offices of Burg & Brock

A November 12 article on NBC Connecticut reported on the rise of E-scooter accidents as more cities offer them as public transit options. The article highlighted the life-changing or life-ending consequences of some E-scooter accidents, from a woman with a traumatic brain injury now confined to a bed to a rider fatality after an incident with a vehicle. Los Angeles-based personal injury law firm Legal Defenders at the Law Offices of Burg & Brock comments that, as major cities across the country continue to become more populated, drivers and pedestrians alike should take extra precautions when it comes to traveling. The firm says that accidents can happen any time, whether it’s on the road in a car or on the sidewalk walking down the street. Paying attention to one’s surroundings while following simple traffic rules can make all the difference between a happy holiday season and a tragic and costly end to the year, the firm says.

Legal Defenders at the Law Offices of Burg & Brock says taking the time to ensure one’s own safety as well as the safety of others is always worth the extra time. For bicyclists and E-scooter users, wearing a helmet is the simplest, yet most important way to ensure safe travels. The firm comments that riders using skateboards or scooters on sidewalks should be extra cautious of pedestrians as dangerous collisions are possible. The Los Angeles-based group stresses the importance of riders slowing down or simply avoiding major streets altogether. For those in big cities, Legal Defenders mentions that utilizing secondary routes or side streets while riding scooters can avoid dangerous run-ins with vehicles.

The LA area law firm says that safety is a two-way street. While pedestrians and riders of alternative transportation need to stay alert of their surroundings, the same applies doubly to motorists on the road. Legal Defenders at the Law Offices of Burg & Brock says drivers should al-ways allot an extra few minutes to arrive at their destination in order to avoid speeding. By giving themselves more than enough time to reach their destination, drivers can slow down when needed and remain alert to their surroundings instead of rushing, says the firm. After all, it adds, with so many alternative vehicles on the road, the chances of being responsible for a tragedy are always very real.
