COMMON Electric Scooter ACCIDENT INJURY QUESTIONS

Electric scooters are categorized as “Electric Personal Assistive Mobility Devices” (EPAMDs) in Arizona. Here are some important Arizona electric scooter regulations: 

Operating Requirements:

  • Electric scooters are generally allowed on roads and bicycle lanes, however they are not permitted on sidewalks unless explicitly permitted by the local authorities.
  • Riders must be at least 16 years old.
  • Riders must obey all traffic laws and regulations that apply to bicycles.
  • The maximum speed should not exceed 20 miles per hour on level ground.

Equipment Requirements:

  • Electric scooters must have a white front light visible from at least 500 feet. Meanwhile, a red rear reflector should be visible from 50 to 300 feet when directly in front of a vehicle’s headlights.
  • It should have an audible signaling device such as a horn or bell.

Licensing and Registration:

  • Electric scooters do not need to be registered, and using one does not require a license or insurance.

Safety Recommendations:

  • Helmet use is strongly advised, especially for riders under the age of 18 years old.
  • Wear bright or reflective clothing, especially when riding at night.

Electric scooters may be subject to additional laws or restrictions in some Arizona cities. For any special rules that apply to the area where you want to ride, check with the local government or transportation authority.

There is no doubt that you will feel very overwhelmed and stressed if you are involved in an electric scooter accident in Arizona. Notwithstanding, there are several things you must do immediately after an electric scooter accident so that you can get the most money possible for your accident injuries.  

  • Hire an experienced electric scooter accident lawyer immediately. Call us now at 602-600-6427 to schedule your FREE Consultation.
  • Do not discuss your electric scooter accident case with anyone. If a representative from any insurance company or an investigator tries to question you or any family member about your case, please find out their name, the company name and who they represent and refer them to our office immediately. Never give them any information or sign any papers.
  • Stay off social media. If you use any form of social media (i.e. Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, FitBit, Health Apps, Blogs, etc.), it is important that you do not post anything regarding your accident and/or injuries, and maintain a private profile. Anyone who seeks information from you may represent an insurance company or adverse party.  Information you disclose could harm your electric scooter accident case.
  • Save all the evidence from the electric scooter accident scene, including a copy of the police accident report, photos or videos, and the names and contact information of any witnesses.
  • Get treatment and make sure you follow all your doctor’s recommendations.
  • Advise your doctor of all medical complaints, including minor ones, so your medical condition can be properly documented and evaluated. This will allow you to achieve a speedy recovery and prevent the insurance company from claiming that your medical issues were caused by our failure to follow doctor’s orders.
  • Make a written list of your accident injury symptoms, no matter how minor. This will prevent problems with minor issues that may get worse by not being considered as part of your accident-related injuries.  It is also recommended that you keep a record of your pain levels, at least weekly or when there are any significant changes, and any activities you cannot do as a result of your accident.
  • DOWNLOAD ACCIDENT JOURNAL.
  • Do not give a written or recorded statement to the insurance company. All communication should be handled by your electric scooter accident lawyer.

Generally no. You should NEVER speak with representatives from the other party’s insurance company, unless we have authorized you to do so. Always remember that you should not discuss the facts of the accident or your injuries with anyone other than your electric scooter accident lawyer. 

If a representative contacts you, politely tell them that you have retained an attorney to represent you. The representative should then contact us and never contact you again. If they do, please notify us immediately and we will file a complaint with the Department of Insurance because it is unfair claims practice for an insurance representative to contact a party knowingly represented by an attorney.

You may be tempted to post messages, photographs, or videos to social media when you have been injured in an accident, but you should try to resist the urge for the sake of protecting your personal injury claim. It was revealed in an article posted in 2015 by the Huffington Post that the first place insurance companies look when investigating accident and personal injury claims is on social media accounts like Snapchat, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Insurance companies will look you up on Google for any posts they can use to deny you compensation and discredit your claim. You may think your social media posts are “private,” but an insurance company can still find a way to gain access. The best thing to do to protect your case is to deactivate your social media accounts altogether.

Generally, the answer is “No”. Remember, the insurance company does not work for you – they work for the individual who caused your accident. Oftentimes, even before you obtain medical attention and assess the extent of your injuries, you may be contacted by a claims adjuster who will make you a ridiculous, low-ball offer. They hope that you’ll accept this offer before you understand the full extent of your damages.

Many people accept these types of offers and sign a release, only to find out further complications “down the road”. Tough Luck. In most states, including Arizona, a release is worded in such a way as to make it almost impossible to ever seek any further compensation after you sign, even if you find your injuries are much worse than you ever anticipated. You shouldn’t agree without first consulting a good Arizona electric scooter accident attorney.

Insurance companies have teams of lawyers and adjusters representing the person who caused your accident and they will do everything possible to reduce the value of your claim. Facing such a team of skilled professionals without having your own legal representation is unwise. It is possible to pursue your claim alone, but you will literally be at the insurance company’s mercy.

The insurance company will make you only a small offer or will simply deny your claim altogether. Unless you are well-trained in the law and understand your legal rights, it will be very difficult to combat the insurance company all on your own and know which avenues you should pursue. Each attorney at our firm is a well-trained, skilled electric scooter accident attorney for Arizona. We know the law here and have negotiated against insurance companies many times successfully.

IMMEDIATELY. Hiring experienced electric scooter accident lawyers, like those at Warnock MacKinlay Law, is vital if you are injured in an electric scooter accident. Unfortunately, we see so many victims attempt to represent themselves and generally fail miserably for several reasons. Studies have shown that a claimant who is represented by legal counsel “nets” (after medical bills and attorney fees) in excess of 300% more money than those who handle their own claim. The only thing more important than hiring a qualified lawyer after an electric scooter accident is seeking medical attention, and the lawyers at Warnock MacKinlay Law can help you with a good, competent accident doctor.
Generally, the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims is two years. This means that you have two years from the time the accident occurred to file a claim against the responsible party. If you wait longer than two years, you waive your right to obtain any compensation for your claim. If you have a claim against a public entity (government), you must make a claim within 180 days from the date of the accident, or your rights are waived.
It is almost impossible to determine how much time it will take to resolve your case because every case is different. Cases that settle prior to filing a lawsuit typically resolve more quickly than those that go to trial. At Warnock MacKinlay Law, we will do everything we can to obtain the maximum compensation possible in the shortest amount of time. A typical timeframe for cases to settle is two to four months after your medical care is complete, but those dates can be shorter or longer depending on many factors.
No. We make it easy to afford an attorney if you have been injured in an electric scooter accident. We do not charge any fee whatsoever for an accident consultation. In fact, we do not charge any attorney fees unless we are successful in recovering money for you. Even if there are costs involved, such as investigation, medical records, medical reports, deposition fees, and the like, we will advance those monies for you until your case is resolved. We will even refer you to doctors who will not demand payment until the case is resolved. It is our job to make the resolution of your case as easy for you as possible.
Absolutely. There was a study done that looked at accident victims that found that people receive 3.5 times higher payouts after accidents when they have a lawyer, even after the personal injury lawyer’s payment is subtracted. Also, Arizona personal injury lawyers can take a lot of work away from a victim who needs to focus on their recovery.
Of course. If you are unhappy with your current lawyer for whatever reason, feel free to reach out. We get a lot of cases who are individuals who weren’t being taken care of properly by their previous attorneys.
Yes. You will always benefit from seeking medical attention right away after an accident.
Yes. It is VERY important that you follow all doctors’ instructions. Please be certain that you see your doctor as he or she directs, and do not miss appointments, so you can achieve a speedy recovery. If at any time you consider ceasing treatment before you are released, whether for reasons of financial inability to continue, work schedule, etc., please let us know before you miss appointments. Although we in no way direct medical care, we want to make sure you can see a doctor who can work with you under your circumstances. The insurer can only determine the severity of your injuries if they are treated by your doctor and any symptoms or injuries you are experiencing should be reported to your doctor and treated.
If you do not have health insurance, please speak with your attorney or paralegal and they will assist you in finding healthcare providers who will wait for payment until your case is settled.

The amount of money you will ultimately recover depends on a variety of issues, the most important of which is the nature of your injuries caused by the accident and the comprehensive medical treatment you receive for those injuries. At Warnock MacKinlay Law, we will help you seek reimbursement for any or all of the following: 

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of love and support
  • Mental and emotional distress
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Permanent impairment and disability
  • Property damage

At Warnock MacKinlay Law, we are experts in building value for your injuries and obtaining the best financial result possible without having to go to trial. In the cases that a lawsuit is necessary, most are resolved before a trial occurs. The likelihood that a case settles or goes to trial depends on the facts of each case. If an insurance company contests liability (fault) or the value of your case, there is a greater chance that your case will go to trial. Our staff has more than 100 years of combined experience; thus, we know how to represent you. It is important to have a lawyer representing you who the insurers know will file suit if necessary, as that increases the likelihood of obtaining a good settlement value through negotiation. The insurers know which firms will file suit and which will not do so.

Distracted Riding: Similar to distracted driving, riders may become distracted by their phones, music, or others. This can cause accidents if they fail to pay attention to their surroundings. 

Collisions with Vehicles: When electric scooters and motor cars share the road, accidents could happen. Drivers may fail to see or anticipate the presence of electric scooters, resulting in crashes, particularly at intersections, during lane changes, and when turning.

Lack of Riding Experience: Accidents using electric scooters might be aggravated by inexperience. Riders who are not experienced with the scooter’s handling and controls may find it difficult to maintain balance, control speed, or navigate safely in a variety of circumstances.

Unsafe Riding Practices: Speeding, weaving through traffic, running red lights or stop signs, or failing to grant the right of way can all increase the likelihood of an accident.

Poor Road Conditions: Uneven pavement, potholes, debris, or other hazards on the road could harm electric scooter riders. Riders may lose control or be thrown off the scooter as a result of these situations.

Riding Under the Influence: Operating an electric scooter while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or other intoxicating substances increases the chance of accidents dramatically.

Lack of Protective Gear: In the case of an accident, not wearing a helmet or other protective gear might result in more serious injuries.
