Ebikes and electric scooters provide Pittsburgh residents and visitors with a convenient means of navigating the city. However, they also leave riders vulnerable to harm.

An ebike or electric scooter accident can cause significant injuries. If you are involved in one resulting from someone else’s carelessness, contact a Pittsburgh ebike and electric scooter accident attorney. Our team at Shenderovich, Shenderovich & Fishman can help you recover financial compensation for your pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, lost wages, medical bills and related losses.

Common Causes of Pittsburgh Ebike and Electric Scooter Accidents

Ebike and electric scooter accidents may occur because other motorists are negligent. Examples of negligent behavior a driver may engage in that could result in a Pittsburgh ebike or electric scooter accident include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Speeding
  • Driving while drunk or under the influence of drugs
  • Drowsy driving
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Distracted driving
  • Failing to heed traffic signs and signals

It’s important to note that ebikes and electric scooters are slightly more complex vehicles with more moving parts than may be found in traditional bicycles and scooters. As such, the possibility of an ebike or electric scooter accident occurring as a result of a vehicle defect or improper maintenance of a rented ebike or electric scooter is also relatively high.

Who May be Liable in a Pittsburgh Ebike or Electric Scooter Accident Case?

The liable parties in an ebike or electric scooter accident case can vary depending on the circumstances. Under Pennsylvania law, ebikes and electric scooters generally fall under the same classification as bicycles. If a bicyclist is injured in an accident in Pennsylvania because another motorist was negligent, the liable party would be the motorist. The same principle applies if a negligent driver causes an ebike or electric scooter accident.

That’s not to say negligent drivers are always the liable parties in these cases. Again, an ebike or electric scooter accident may be the result of a defect or maintenance. In this scenario, the liable party might be the ebike’s or electric scooter’s manufacturer or the lessor responsible for maintaining rented ebikes and electric scooters.

Our team of Pittsburgh ebike and electric scooter accident attorneys will conduct an investigation to gather evidence to prove your case. We will investigate your accident thoroughly to accurately identify the liable parties. Next, we will file a claim on your behalf, negotiating a settlement with the insurance company, or we will file suit and relentlessly pursue justice on your behalf.
