Rental Bike, Electric Scooter, and Divvy Rental Accidents

Chicago Rental Bike and Electric Scooter Accident Attorney

Rental bikes and electric scooters offer an easy and economical way to get around the city, but they do pose risks. As the popularity of these eco-friendly transportation options has increased, so too have injuries and collisions. At The Horwitz Law Group, we help people injured in all kinds of accidents, including collisions involving rental bikes, electric scooters, and Divvy bike shares. Protecting our community since 1992, our Chicago personal injury lawyers provide trusted legal guidance and professional representation to help you get your life back and get the compensation you need to recover.

Injured in a Rental Bike, Electric Scooter, or Divvy Accident in Chicago?

Bike shares and electric scooter rentals in Chicago provide residents with a cost-effective and environmentally-friendly transportation option. Divvy makes it easy to grab a bike from just about anywhere in the city. A program of the Chicago Department of Transportation, the bike-sharing system offers round-the-clock availability, even on weekends and holidays. 

While Divvy has been quickly embraced by residents, it is important to be aware of the risks. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), rental bikes and e-scooters are blamed for an increasing number of accidents, resulting in nearly 60,000 hospital emergency room visits each year. Personal injuries often sustained by victims include: 

  • Broken bones and multiple fractures;
  • Burn injuries and road rash;
  • Crushing injuries, causing loss of limbs;
  • Head, back, and neck injuries;
  • Internal injuries, impacting body organs;
  • Soft tissue injuries, such as muscle tears;
  • Spinal cord injuries;
  • Traumatic brain injuries.  

At The Horwitz Law Group, we help clients injured in rental bike and e-scooter accidents. While you focus on recovering from your injuries, our Chicago personal injury lawyers focus on holding those at fault accountable. 

Our Chicago Personal Injury Lawyers Help You Get Compensation

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has conducted studies into electric scooters and rental bike accidents. In addition to a steadily increasing number of cases, they determined that reckless behavior on the part of motorists was often to blame. 

As experienced Chicago personal injury lawyers, The Horwitz Law Group takes the actions needed to hold negligent drivers accountable for their actions and help injury victims get the compensation they are entitled to in a claim. This includes: 

  • Conducting our own investigation into your rental bike or electric scooter accident;
  • Determining who is at fault and gathering evidence to support your claim;
  • Negotiating with insurance representatives to obtain the maximum amount in a settlement;
  • Filing a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf, if the driver was uninsured, your injuries are severe, or multiple parties are responsible.
