Electric scooter injuries have surged along with their popularity in the United States. A study in 2020 showed that scooter injuries nearly tripled over four years. Nearly 40,000 broken bones, head injuries, cuts and bruises from scooter accidents were treated in the U.S. emergency rooms from 2014 to 2018. Also, scooter riders suffer a higher proportion of head injuries than that of bicyclists. The laws can be tricky depending on the type and size scooter you are riding. State laws are scrambling to keep up with the ever-increasing scooter use, making scooter injuries one of the legal arena’s trickiest topics today.
