Stay Safe on Your Next Segway Ride

Segways have been a common sight in malls and among city touring groups since their debut in 2001. Although the Segway's creator hoped to fundamentally change the way we travel, potentially replacing the motor vehicle and altering pedestrian traffic, it never reached this level of influence. It was, however, adopted by many companies and organizations for use by security guards, police officers, and tour group leaders and participants.

Segways, like any other type of vehicle, can be dangerous. A Segway's top speed is 12 miles per hour, and when ridden on a sidewalk among bicyclists and pedestrians, a fast, bulky Segway can cause a collision that results in injury. They are also at risk of mechanical failures just like any other mechanical or electronic product. When an individual is injured in a Segway accident that could have been prevented through better care on another party's part, he or she can file a personal injury claim to seek compensation for his or her related damages. The type of personal injury claim the individual files depends on the nature of the incident. It could be a premises liability claim, a product liability claim, or a simple claim based on negligence.
