Golf Cart Accidents

Golf carts are a ubiquitous sight in Florida on and off the golf course. Out on the links on one of the many sunny days for which our state is famous, a golf cart is a convenient, quiet and practical way for golfers to get around, enjoy a quick 9 or 18 holes and get some fresh air. When a golfer takes a spill on the fairway or a green, it’s considered par for the course, and play is nearly always resumed in short order. However, in most Florida communities where golf carts are the preferred (or required) mode of transportation, golf cart accidents can be quite serious. It may surprise you to learn that according to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), around 15,000 people suffer injuries serious enough to warrant an emergency room visit in golf cart accidents each year in the U.S. However, this comes as no surprise to Florida golf cart accident attorneys such as James O. Cunningham. He and other personal injury lawyers in the Florida area see and help people injured in golf cart accidents on a regular basis and have done so for years.

Golf Cart Accidents Are Especially Dangerous for Children and Senior Citizens

The CPSC data indicate that four in ten golf cart accidents involve a person being ejected from the cart. As most golf carts do not have seat belts, this is not altogether surprising. What many people do find surprising, however, is that many golf cart ejections also involve rollovers. Golf carts are not designed and engineered to handle turns well at any speed. When a driver has to take quick, evasive action, forward momentum and the absence of seat belts frequently result in an ejection and potentially deadly rollover, particularly for passengers. As you might guess, the people most often ejected in golf cart accidents are retired people, but few people know that 40 percent of all accidents involving golf carts are children.
