Why hire an experienced scooter lawyer?
Simply put, an experienced scooter attorney can help you navigate the claims process with Bird.
Bird has a pretty robust user agreement that really tries to limit their responsibility related to any injury that occurs while riding one of their scooters. An experienced lawyer who understands this agreement and can advocate on your behalf is worth his or her weight in gold.
How can a Bird scooter lawyer help me determine who is liable for my accident?
A lawyer who has handled Bird scooter accidents can help investigate the facts and circumstances of your particular accident to determine fault. Most lawyers also work with experts who can be hired to help determine fault.
Do I need to hire a Bird scooter lawyer near me, or where the accident happened? How does it help to have a lawyer who is familiar with local scooter laws?
It is very important to find an attorney who is familiar with Bird scooter accidents. It is probably just as important that you find someone who is licensed to practice law in the state where the accident occurred. Some user agreements have language that selects the state for you. Please be aware of this when researching attorneys.
Most important, you wouldn’t want to hire just any attorney — and you certainly don’t want to hire someone who isn’t licensed in your state.
At Negretti & Associates, we have offices in Arizona, California and Colorado. If you have experienced a Bird scooter accident in one of these states, please give us a call to discuss your claim.
Is there anything unique about Bird’s terms and conditions in relation to my case?
Yes. For example, Bird’s user agreement requires that your claim be handled under California law. In other words, if your accident happened in another state, you will be operating under California law. Therefore, it would be wise to have an attorney licensed in California who is familiar with California law.
Is there a Bird scooter class-action lawsuit? Why not join a class-action lawsuit?
Bird’s user agreement does not allow you to start or join a class-action lawsuit. You waive that right when you click through the app at the moment of signing up and accepting Bird’s terms of service.
