Protecting Victims of Unsafe Rental Vehicles in West Virginia

Over the last few years, there has been a spike in accidents involving rental scooters. As of 2019, rental scooters have caused over 1,500 hospital visits for riders who were injured. The reason for these accidents is simple: people don’t wear helmets, and these scooters are rarely maintained well enough to keep them safe. If you were hurt while riding a faulty scooter, it is important that you get help from experienced West Virginia personal injury lawyers who can help you fight for the compensation you need to get better. At Katz, Kantor, Stonestreet & Buckner, we are prepared to take your side.

Causes of Scooter Accidents

While rental scooters can be convenient and fun, they can also present a serious safety hazard with almost no way to know beforehand. These scooters are put on the street by companies like Lime, Bird, and Lyft, then picked up by independent contractors in town to recharge them. Opportunities to check for functional problems are few and far between, leaving riders to discover them at potentially dangerous intersections.

Problems with rental scooters can include:

  • Brake failures
  • Electrical issues with acceleration
  • Mechanical problems such as wheel breakage
  • Battery failure
  • Other structural problems

Who Is Responsible?

While the laws surrounding these vehicles is relatively new, there is an obvious responsibility on the part of the rental company to provide users with safe equipment. If you were hurt using one of these machines, get help from our West Virginia personal injury lawyers at Katz, Kantor, Stonestreet & Buckner today. We have experience fighting for fair compensation, and we can help you build a strong case in support of your interests.
