Golf carts have become familiar in many communities, and not just along country club fairways. Many seniors and others are using these vehicles as a convenient, economical and even fun form of transportation. Manufacturers are designing carts that are faster and more maneuverable. But there’s a dark side to golf carts: Because they don’t have to meet the same federal rules that govern auto and truck safety, golf carts offer very little accident protection to drivers and passengers. When a golf cart is involved in an accident with another vehicle, the damage and injuries can be devastating. And when golf carts are used on uneven surfaces (like golf courses), they can be unstable and tip over easily. No wonder doctors are seeing more golf cart injuries — and those injuries are more severe.
If you or someone you love has been injured in (or by) a golf cart, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Gerling Law’s accident lawyers are experienced in personal injury law. We are dedicated to obtaining full and fair compensation for your golf cart-related injury, or wrongful death compensation if a family member was killed while operating or riding in a golf cart. We will thoroughly investigate the accident to determine who was at fault. That includes situations when a faulty golf cart or improperly maintained property may have contributed to the accident.
