SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — It was bound to happen. The city of San Antonio is being sued by a woman who was injured while riding an electric scooter on a city street.
The lawsuit filed on Tuesday names both the city and Lime Scooters as defendants.
It claims 48 year old Tina Galvan was riding one of the scooters on East Carson on June 15th when she rode into a hole in a recently paved section of the street.
Brad Bonilla is Galvan’s attorney. He says there were no warnings of the road hazard and his client was seriously injured with fractures, facial lacerations and a spinal injury that will likely require surgery.
Bonilla says his client hasn’t been able to return to work.
Lime Scooters is being blamed for not informing Galvan of the dangers of using scooters on public roads.
As far as how much they’re asking for in damages, Bonilla didn’t give us an exact amount but said it could be up to a million dollars.
