Review Your Case and Determine Liability in Your Bird Scooter Accident
Electric scooters rented from transportation companies such as Bird are still relatively new, and the legal system is still sorting out the most just and efficient approaches for handling these cases. An e-scooter injury could occur in many ways and lead to a claim or lawsuit:
- A car colliding with the e-scooter
- A fall or crash caused by a malfunctioning e-scooter
- Poorly designed streets, bike lanes, or other areas causing a crash
- A pedestrian, bicyclist, or other e-scooter rider struck by someone using a Bird scooter
The facts of the case determine who is at fault and liable. We work hard to gather all available relevant evidence about the cause of the accident to ensure we identify all responsible parties. Liable parties could include:
- A motorist
- An e-scooter rider
- Bird or another electric scooter company
- The scooter manufacturer
E-Scooters Only Allowed on Certain Long Island Roadways
According to the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), riders can operate e-scooters on streets with a posted speed limit of 30 miles per hour or less. However, county governments and municipalities have the right to put stricter regulations on the time, place, and manner of their use. These regulations could affect your case.

When Should I Contact a Law Firm About My Bird Scooter Accident Injuries?
There is no set time for when you should connect with our team, but we recommend reaching out as early as possible. Once you enlist our help, we will begin identifying and gathering evidence. The sooner we are on your case, the greater the opportunity we have to collect strong proof of negligence and liability.
In general, there are deadlines we must meet to sue the liable party or parties. These include New York Civil Practice Laws & Rules § 214 for personal injury cases and Estates, Powers & Trusts § 5-4.1 in a wrongful death action.
While we often reach out-of-court settlements in personal injury cases and might not need to sue to secure a financial recovery for you, we will be in the strongest position to win the best result for you by treating your case as if it may ultimately be presented at trial before a judge and jury. We will handle your case in that manner if you choose our firm as your injury lawyers. Let us explain how the claims process works during your complimentary consultation with our team.
