Scooter-sharing companies involved in class action litigation

Many companies have innovative ideas to help better their areas and the world. Of course, while their intentions may be good, some customers or clients may find issue with the product or services provided. In some instances, class action litigation could result if several individuals feel that they have suffered damages from the same company.

Florida readers may be interested in an out-of-state class action lawsuit that involves two scooter-sharing companies. These companies offer electric scooters for rent that individuals can use to get to their destinations or ride for pleasure and return later. While the companies hoped to offer environmentally-friendly ways for individuals to get from one place to another, nine people have filed the lawsuit due to the injuries they have suffered in relation to the scooters.

It it unclear exactly how many injuries have resulted from these e-scooters, but at least three people have died in scooter-related incidents. Other individuals claim to have suffered facial injuries, detached biceps and damage to their teeth. Two of the individuals involved in the lawsuit claim that they suffered injuries after tripping over scooters left on sidewalks, and four others stated that they were hit from behind by riders while walking. An attorney involved in the case stated that 75 other people have expressed interested in the suit due to injuries they have suffered from these scooters.

When businesses face class action litigation, it can cause considerable worry for the future of the company. Fortunately, there are ways that Florida business owners can address these claims. Exploring their legal options for handling such lawsuits may help them determine their most viable courses of action.
