It could be hard to hold an electric scooter company liable for these incidents because most users sign a waiver of liability when they agree to use the scooters. However, the companies may be liable if the scooter in question was defective or if an underage rider was allowed to rent a device.
More likely, liability will revolve around a negligent party that caused the actual accident. This could include a negligent vehicle driver that strikes an electric scooter operator. In some cases, the electric scooter operator may be found liable if they cause injury to other parties involved, such as pedestrians and bicyclists
