I’m sure you or someone you know has an e-bike… it’s all the rage right now, right? But are you covered if something happened on that e-bike?
E-bikes are everywhere now it seems, making it more and more likely that accidents involving them will happen more often! You might be thinking…
What could happen?
- E-bike collides with and injures a pedestrian (we’ve witnessed it!)
- E-bike collides with another bike rider and injures them
- E-bike merges without warning into a driving lane, causing an auto accident
Anything could happen! In the event of an accident such as or similar to the ones listed: owners of e-bikes, scooters and other micro-mobility devices could be held liable for damages and the injuries, disabilities or even deaths of others involved.
Most Homeowners Insurance policies exclude liability coverage when e-bikes or other micro-mobility devices are used to travel on public roads and sidewalks. We believe that your best move is to purchase a separate policy.
