An e-scooter rider hit and injured me. Can I file an insurance claim against the scooter rider? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Victims of crashes caused by e-scooter riders will have their best chance of securing injury settlements by filing uninsured motorist claims with their own auto insurance policies. E-scooter riders rarely have coverage under their insurance policies, and liability waivers that all e-scooter ride share users must accept protect companies like Bird and Lime from personal injury or wrongful death claims.
