At Fund Capital America, we can provide same-day electric scooter accident legal funding. Have you been injured in a scooter crash or by a reckless scooter rider? If the accident wasn’t your fault and you’re facing a mountain of medical bills, we can provide the settlement funding you need now.
A settlement may be months away or more. But if you have a scooter injury, financial support can be available in less than 24 hours when you apply with Fund Capital America. Our process is paperless and there are no hidden fees. You’ll receive a non-recourse cash advance that you don’t owe us back if your case doesn’t win and you don’t recover compensation. The repayment terms are solely based on the time of your case to settlement.
The financial repercussions of a scooter accident can be substantial. Scooter riders often have little protection, so being hit by a heavier vehicle or impacting the road surface can result in major injuries that require extensive medical care.
Electric scooter companies have been assertive about their safety guidelines. For example, you must be 18+ years old, have a valid driver’s license, wear a helmet, and follow all traffic laws. Riders are also urged to stay within designated bike lanes. If you follow safety guidelines and have been in an accident, your attorney can build a stronger case for you.
Pre-settlement funding can help you afford daily expenses until you obtain a fair settlement following:
As you can see, scooter accidents are often the result of negligence or actions that increase the risk of a crash. You can seek legal recourse from a liable party and be compensated for medical treatment, property damage, pain and suffering, etc. However, because accident victims are often out of work, they may struggle to pay immediate obligations such as rent, utilities, and exorbitant medical bills. But relief may be just hours, not months, away.
In Southern California, rideshare electric scooters have taken over the streets and sidewalks, thanks to aggressive campaigns by several companies. Riders face the risk of accidents and severe injuries. In such cases, pre-settlement funding is a much more practical alternative to settlement loans for electric scooter accidents.
The following companies have dominated California streets with electric scooters:
The leading rideshare company purchased JUMP, an electric bicycle-sharing company, and has since launched JUMP scooters in 10 cities. These low-cost scooters can be reserved through the Uber app or you can unlock one by scanning the QR code on the scooter’s handlebar. Riders can travel from point A to point B at up to 15 miles per hour.
Lime-S scooters first became available in San Francisco. Like many other rideshare scooters, Lime scooters are just unlocked to get going. They are monitored remotely by so-called Lime Juicers, who seek out scooters that need recharging. In October 2018, thousands of lime scooters were pulled from the streets due to concerns of battery fires.
Based in Santa Monica, Bird has advocated environmental benefits, convenience for low-income riders, and safety. It even offers free helmets for riders. As of summer 2018, bird scooters were in 20 U.S. cities, while cities like San Francisco and Denver have banned them. Like Lime, the company pays “chargers” to find and power up scooters with low batteries.
Lyft launched electric scooters in September 2018, starting in Santa Monica and Denver, and is now present in many U.S. cities. In addition to unlocking a scooter, users can end or pause a ride and get directions to an available scooter. Lyft Community Pass targets residents of Lyft’s service areas. An online fare estimator is available as well.

Legal funding provides a fast and risk-free way to obtain scooter injury financial support before your case settles. The legal process involves many steps, each of which can take time. It may be a year or more before you recover any settlement funds, but legal funding can provide the cash you need instantly out of your future settlement proceeds.
In contrast to a traditional loan, legal funding is not backed by property or other assets. Approval is not dependent on your employment status or your credit score. A bank loan can require stiff repayment terms and you must start repaying the principal plus interest right away. But legal funding requires no upfront fees and you pay nothing out of pocket. Therefore, it adds no financial strain.
In short, the benefits of legal funding for electric scooter accident victims include:
Applying for electric scooter accident legal funding is fast and simple. Our online application can be completed in minutes and requires just your name, contact information, and details of your accident and injuries. We’ll also need your attorney’s contact information, as the facts of the case will help us decide whether to approve your request and determine an amount to offer.
Each case is evaluated individually using a risk assessment model. We’re familiar with many types of cases and the injuries scooter riders are susceptible to. Therefore, our underwriters can quickly determine the strength of your case. The better its chances of winning, the more likely you’ll be approved for legal funding.
