Foot Powered Scooter Injury
Razor Scooter Injuries
Foot-powered scooters can be an incredibly fun way to get exercise. These scooters, sometimes called razor scooters, have been extremely popular with children and adults alike for years. At best, they can be a great way to spend quality time outside. But at worst, they can cause painful, even debilitating injuries.
There are some common-sense techniques that people can use to be safe while riding a scooter. Wear a helmet and elbow/knee pads. Look both ways before crossing the street. Practice using a scooter before taking it out for a spin.
Unfortunately, even the most careful scooter user can still be injured if someone else is careless.
Injuries Sustained from Playing With a Scooter
You should feel confident that when your children play with scooters, they will be safe from injury. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Some manufacturers may sell defective scooters. In other cases, the scooter design itself is flawed.
Regardless of the cause, scooters can injure their riders in many serious ways. From painful pinched skin to blunt trauma to the ankle, scooter riders can be injured when a scooter fails to function as intended.
If these injuries were the result of a defective product, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Your children should not have to pay the price for someone else’s negligence. An experienced attorney can help you explore your options and hold manufacturers accountable.
Injuries Sustained from Car-Scooter Accidents
Injuries sustained when a car crashes into a foot-powered scooter can be tragic. Scooter riders have little to no protection from the blunt force of a crash. If a scooter rider is hit by a car, they are at risk of extremely serious injuries. This could include nerve damage, broken bones and even death.
If the accident was caused by a distracted, intoxicated, or otherwise negligent driver, you do not have to suffer in silence. An attorney can help you fight for the justice you deserve. This may include a financial settlement to help cover the cost of medical bills, missed wages, or emotional damages.
