Electric scooter use in California has increased over the past several years, offering a convenient and eco-friendly way to get around town. These motorized vehicles are the go-to option for short-distance commuting, with the popular e-scooter model LINK traveling around 420,000 miles and taking more than 270,000 trips in Los Angeles as of January 2022.
Despite their convenience and environmental benefits, e-scooters can cause serious injuries that require diagnostic imaging, hospital stays, and follow-up care. 1,354 people were injured by e-scooters in the greater Los Angeles area between 2014 and 2020, 6% of whom required inpatient admission.
