Scooter Accidents in Texas
Electronic scooters are a popular trend in metropolitan cities because of their convenience and low cost. Thousands of people are riding public electronic scooters every day nationwide, but with the rise in scooter accessibility also comes a rise in scooter accidents. Because riders are not required to wear helmets, they are more susceptible to sustaining very serious life-changing injuries. Often times these accidents occur when riders are crossing the street and drivers are not paying attention, especially if the accident occurs after midnight.
