PERAZZO LAW HANDLES LIME SCOOTER ACCIDENT CLAIMS IN MIAMI
LIME SCOOTER AND E-BIKE ACCIDENTS ARE ON THE RISE IN MIAMI AND THROUGHOUT MANY MIAMI-DADE AND BROWARD CITIES. PERAZZO LAW HELPS VICTIMS OF LIME SCOOTER RELATED ACCIDENTS FILE ACCIDENT CLAIMS TO GAIN FAIR COMPENSATION FROM INJURIES, LOSSES, OR DAMAGES INCURRED.
In Miami, Lime Scooter practicality is appealing, their app and design are fresh, and riding them is a fun experience, but an accident aboard a Lime Scooter, Lime E, or Lime Pedal Bike can end tragically in Miami. Perazzo Law knows that Lime and the scooter craze has cast riders into the heart of Miami's congested streets and avenues, and with this comes an alarming trend of scooter accidents that inflict injuries and damages on Miami pedestrians, motorists, other bike riders, and more. When there is a Lime scooter or Lime E Bike accident in Miami, Perazzo Law urges victims to seek both medical care and legal advice immediately. Though a Lime Scooter, Lime E Bike, or Lime Pedal Bike rider may not necessarily be at fault for an accident, Perazzo Law knows that Lime Scooter rider injuries can involve Miami motorists and pedestrians, which may play an important role in the Lime scooter accident. Despite the training videos and safety measures offered by the Lime company, users don't always abide to them. Though it's not entirely clear whether Lime scooter riders can use streets, sidewalks, or bike lanes only, motorists may encounter a Lime scooter or pedal bike rider at any given turn and riding at any direction.
Perazzo Law Explains types of Accidents and Injuries involving Lime Scooters in Miami
In order to deal with Lime Scooter accidents and injuries in Miami, Perazzo Law urges victims and those involved to notify the authorities and attend to injuries immediately.

The types of personal injuries a Lime Scooter accident victim may suffer:
- Head Trauma
- Broken Bones
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Death (as a result of severe head trauma)
The types of accidents that involve Lime Scooters and E-Bike in Miami:
- Miami Motorist Negligence that leads to a Lime Scooter or E-Bike accident - This may include a motorist that crashes into a Lime Scooter or E-Bike rider as a result of a violation of traffic laws, negligent cellphone use while driving, or reckless driving.
- Miami Lime Scooter or E-Bike rider negligence - This may include negligence on behalf of a Lime Scooter or E-Bike operator through disregard for safety measures such as abiding by local helmet laws, speed limits, traffic signals, use of bike lanes and access to streets. Lime Scooter and E-Bike riders are urged to apply care and safety when operating scooters and bikes on Miami streets and avenues.

Pedestrians may also cross negligently at night and in poorly lit areas while wearing dark clothes. (See Pedestrians Beware)
How Lime Operates in Miami - Perazzo Law Shares Insight
Those looking to get around in Miami, or any city where Lime offers its Scooter and Electric and Pedal Bike services, must download an app and register as a user. Once this is done, they can begin to use the scooters, E-bikes, or pedal bikes at a fixed price and pick-up a unit at the location marked on the app's map screen and drop off the unit anywhere they want after inputting the drop-off location. It is really simple, practical, and relatively hassle-free. Users are advised to watch a training video in order for them to gain insight into proper use and safety measures riders should apply. Such as using hand signals, apply alertness to obstacles or potholes, do pre-ride safety checks, and obey traffic laws. Once users have watched the videos (optional) and become familiar with the use of the app, they are ready to take to the streets on a Lime Electric Scooter, Lime E-bike or conventional pedal bike.
