To help you understand your options, we’ve prepared the following series of questions to consider when hiring a Lime scooter lawyer.

Why is important to choose an experienced Lime scooter lawyer — someone who has familiarity with scooter law?

An experienced attorney can lead you step-by-step through the Lime accident claims process. Lime has an extensive user agreement. Not only is it long — more than 6,500 words, requiring about a half hour to read — it’s designed to limit Lime’s responsibility related to any injuries that occur while riding one of their scooters.

It’s therefore very helpful to have a lawyer who is familiar with the intricacies of this user agreement — as well as other scooter companies’ user agreements — and can advocate on your behalf accordingly.

Should I hire a Lime scooter lawyer near me? How does it help to have a lawyer who is familiar with my local and state laws?

As we just discussed, it’s very important to find an attorney or law firm with experience in Lime scooter injury accidents. Yet, it’s equally important to choose a lawyer who is licensed to practice law in the state where your accident occurred.

Every state has its own unique laws that govern claims. If your lawyer does not have knowledge of local and state laws where your accident occurred, your ability to recover the full extent of your damages could be compromised.

Keep in mind that, when it comes to where a case can be heard, some scooter companies’ user agreements have language that selects the state for you. Please be aware of this when researching attorneys.

At Negretti & Associates, we have offices in Arizona, California and Colorado. If you have experienced a Lime scooter accident in one of these states, please give us a call to discuss your claim.

How can a Lime scooter lawyer help me determine who is liable for my accident?

A lawyer who has handled Lime scooter accidents can help investigate the facts and circumstances of your particular accident to determine fault. Most Lime scooter lawyers also work with experts who can be hired to help determine fault.

Is there anything unique about Lime’s user agreement in relation to my case?

Yes. For example, in its user agreement, Lime has a binding arbitration clause. As a result, it means that you are not able to sue Lime in open court. This doesn’t mean that you don’t have a claim — it just means that you may not be able to make your dispute public. Negretti & Associates has handled quite a few Lime claims and are familiar with Lime’s arbitration provision and how to navigate your claim appropriately.

Is there a Lime scooter class action lawsuit? Why not join a class-action lawsuit?

Everything with Lime claims hinges on the scooter company’s user agreement. Lime’s user agreement does not allow users to start or join a class-action lawsuit. There is a class-action waiver provision buried in its user agreement. You surrender the right to join a class-action suit when you when you first sign up on the Lime app and click the “I agree” button.
