What You Need to Know About Golf Cart Injuries

It’s a common site in The Villages, people zooming around in golf carts to get from here to there. In fact, according to local regulations, residents are allowed to own and drive golf carts on designated paths and roads as if they were driving a regular motor vehicle. As a result of these very liberal laws, the use of golf carts as a secondary vehicle has skyrocketed – along with the many miles of increasingly crowded paths being built daily.

Like any type of motor vehicle, with so many golf carts on the roads accidents will happen. Golf cart accidents can involve a single cart, several carts hitting each other, a cart and car hitting each other or even a cart hitting a pedestrian. Regardless of who is involved, all types of golf cart accidents can cause serious injury to all those involved. Common golf cart accident injuries include:

As with a motor vehicle accident, if you are the victim of a golf cart accident you have the right to be compensated for your injuries. The law treats golf cart drivers like any other driver, requiring them to utilize a specific standard of care when operating a golf cart so as to ensure the safety of others. If the driver operates the golf cart negligently, drives recklessly, drives under the influence, speeds, fails to use a turn signal, or operates a malfunctioning cart, then they have breached this duty of care and can be held liable for your injuries.

To ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for your golf cart accident injuries, you should consult an attorney experienced in handling golf cart accident claims. They will be able to review the facts of your case, the extent of your injuries and the applicable law and develop a strategy for collecting the full amount of compensation you are entitled to.

    I was involved in a motor vehicle accident where the other driver ran a red light and my car was a total loss. I was referred to James Cunningham due to the fact that our attorney’s have been very impressed with James Cunningham’s work. This fact turned out to be very true as Mr. Cunningham helped me win my case to a full and maximum settlement.
