You have seen them in large cities. E-Scooters — all over the place. If you have ever wondered if people are being injured, the answer is a resounding yes.

As reported in the AAJ Brief Magazine published in September, 2021, a research project at the Henry Ford Health System estimated that more than 103,000 E-Scooter injuries have occurred since the launch of sharing programs, such as Lime and Bird. Until 2018, injuries were most prevalent for riders under age 18. But from 2018 forward — those 18 to 44 have now become the most injured group.

The injuries span a large range — from fractures to traumatic brain injuries.

So if you are going to ride an E-Scooter, please be careful. And consider wearing a helmet.
