Liability in Golf Cart Accidents
Golf cart laws are nuanced beyond the rules of the road for other motor vehicles. It is important to have capable counsel when assessing liability in a golf cart accident.
Many golf car accidents are caused by:
- Reckless driving
- Failure to obey traffic laws
- Texting while driving
- Drunk driving
- A defective golf cart or faulty vehicle parts
If a driver’s mistake or misconduct caused the accident, we can pursue a claim against them and seek compensation from their insurance company. It is also possible that a manufacturer may bear responsibility in the accident if the golf cart was defective. We can carefully investigate the incident and determine whether manufacturer error was to blame.
What to Do after a Golf Cart Accident
After a golf cart accident, it is in your best interest to document and gather as much evidence as possible. This will help you later on should you choose to file a claim.
We recommend that you:
- Exchange contact information with other parties: Make sure you have contact and insurance information from the driver or the person who caused the accident. You should also get information from any potential witnesses.
- Document your property damages: If possible, take photos of the golf cart, the accident scene, and any other property damage.
- Document your injuries: If you are severely injured, seek medical attention right away. If you are well enough to take photos of your injuries, do so. After receiving medical care, be sure to document even the little details. Take note of the cost of the treatment and any time you missed from work.
