Electric Scooter Accident - Dallas, TX - Reyes Browne ReilleyIt’s hard to miss the colorful bikes and scooters that have been popping up throughout Dallas. It would appear to be a great concept: accessible, affordable, ‘greener’ urban transportation. But what happens when things take a turn for the worse? No one plans on having an accident, but they inevitably do. Who is liable in a scooter accident – the corporation or the consumer?

Several weeks after the e-scooters made their debut in Dallas, Uptown resident Kelley Mitchum underestimated the speed at which she was traveling and ended up in a severe crash. Upon turning a corner too quickly, she was launched headfirst into McKinney Avenue’s trolley tracks. The $1.38 rental resulted in a hefty emergency room bill, treating her two black eyes, scraped arms and knees, and a laceration in her forehead which required stitches.

Cases like Mitchum’s are bound to become more frequent in Dallas’ busy urban landscape, as was the case of a local Dallas musician in early August.

The woman, Kelley Mitchum, told WFAA that she was with friends at a restaurant on McKinney Avenue and decided to try out the new scooters.

At the end of June, the City of Dallas passed regulations for bike share companies that many in the city have been asking for.
