How To Sue Driver That Hit Me On Scooter – MN Lawyers


A University of Minnesota student posted this video on the university sub-Reddit earlier this week. The video shows the student riding an electric scooter on the University Avenue Southeast and 17th Avenue Southeast near campus without the right of way when a car strikes him.  The student acknowledges in the post’s comments that he was responsible for the crash, but the scooter or car were not damaged in the accident. “As I was going down University Ave in the right bike lane, I had a slight thought in my head that I could make it across the intersection and make it onto the sidewalk of 17th Ave.”  Fortunately, he wasn’t seriously injured.

When asked for comment by WCCO news, a university spokesperson referred to campus rules for electric scooter use, including using available bike lanes and obeying traffic laws. This is a good reminder to be respectful of the driving conditions when riding a scooter on busy roads.  It is dangerous enough as it is with so many distracted drivers on the road.
