Alternative transportation accidents—skateboards, scooters, e-bikes
Do you ride an alternative means of transportation? A scooter? A powered scooter? A skateboard? A hoverboard? An e-bike? A moped? A city-bike? An electric unicycle? Were you injured in a collision? Were you in the street? In a bike lane? On the sidewalk? Were you a pedestrian? A motorist? Something in between? Did a pedestrian collide with you? Are you covered by Connecticut’s new pedestrian-friendly traffic laws? Does automobile insurance apply? Who pays your medical bills? Your lost wages? Who pays to replace your expensive e-bike that is now destroyed? Do you have a case?
