Santa Barbara Electric Car Accident Attorney

Electric Car Crash Lawyer Santa Barbara

People in Santa Barbara and throughout California care about the environment and have always been at the forefront of the fight to reduce their carbon footprints. There has been a major movement across California to reduce carbon emissions by utilizing public transportation, walking, or riding a bicycle instead of hopping in a car to get to work or to run errands. And for people who need their own vehicle for travel, electric cars are the way to go. Electric cars are much better for the environment, but as our Santa Barbara electric car accident attorneys know, they do come with their own risks of danger.

People at risk in electric car accidents

Public charging stations have popped up across the state making electric cars a much more practical alternative than they were even a few years ago. Now that electric cars are increasing in popularity, we are also seeing electric car injuries more frequently than ever before. See below for particular electric car injury scenarios.

  • Pedestrians – Electric cars make a very little sound and often pedestrians cannot hear a vehicle coming. This is especially true for people who are listening to music or podcasts through earbuds. When hearing and attention may already be compromised and a silent car is added to the mix, accidents happen.
  • Visually impaired pedestrians – Electric cars pose an even greater risk for visually impaired people who rely on their sense of hearing to compensate for being unable to see.
  • Children – Children are also at a greater risk because they are inexperienced and may not be as alert and on the lookout for motor vehicles. When they are crossing the street on their scooters or bicycles, hearing a car sometimes reminds them to look for the danger that they may not otherwise be thinking about.
  • BicyclistsBicyclists are also at risk when a silent vehicle approaches them from behind. Typically bicyclists will hear a vehicle coming and will be prepared for that vehicle to pass them. Not being aware of an approaching or passing vehicle is very dangerous for bicyclists.
  • Electric car driver – Electric cars come with risks of danger to their drivers caused by exploding batteries, vehicles catching fire, causing electric shock, and self-driving defects causing accidents.
  • Other vehicle occupants – When electric cars are involved in a collision with another vehicle, the other vehicle’s occupants may be injured due to the collision impact or an electric car fire that starts upon impact.
  • First responder – First responders have also sustained injuries due to battery fires and electric shock.

All car accidents have the potential to be dangerous and cause significant injuries, but electric cars have unique risks of dangers to their occupants and anyone else involved in an accident with an electric car. If you or a loved one has sustained injuries in an accident, contact a Santa Barbara electric car accident attorney at The Compass Law Group, PC to schedule a consultation.
