Common Causes of Electric Scooter Crashes

  • Road Hazards: From debris in the road to potholes and uneven surfaces, there are numerous hazards scooter riders can encounter that might cause them to lose control.
  • Lack of Visibility: Electric scooters are significantly smaller than cars and trucks, which makes it more difficult for drivers to see them when making turns or changing lanes.
  • Crashes with Motor Vehicles: Riders remain incredibly vulnerable while on board these products. Whether by being "doored" or other interactions with motor vehicles on the street, the risk remain very real for the user.

The laws involving e-bikes, e-scooters, Revel mopeds and other alternative forms of transportation are changing rapidly. Some of these companies even include liability provisions that riders electronically sign, without proper notice, limiting their rights to file lawsuits. Daniel Flanzig has actively been involved in e-bike legislation for over the last 5 years and has even given testimony in front of the New York City Council on the amendments to e-bike legislation in the City. He is well versed in the law on these products as well as the cause of crashes during their use. As one of the few attorneys in the New York area skilled in this area of practice, we can offer a unique ability to represent your interests when involved in this type of crash.

Revel Scooter Accidents

In New York, Revel mopeds have become a popular mode of transposition in densely populated neighborhoods across Brooklyn and Queens. At first, Revel was bringing in more than 100 of their black-and-bright-blue Vespa-style scooters per day. Within one week there were 1,000 mopeds parked on city streets.

However, Revel scooters can be dangerous to both the operator and other vulnerable street users. Crashes with Scooters involving pedestrians and cyclists can cause devastating injuries. The scooters don’t make any noise, which means pedestrians and cyclists can’t hear them coming. If you have been involved in a crash with a Revel moped, you need assistance from an experienced lawyer who has the resources to take on your case and pursue the compensation you are entitled to.
