What are Golf Cart Injuries?
While golf carts may seem harmless due to their low speeds, accidents can lead to serious injuries, especially in situations where seat belts are not provided or used. These injuries can include:
- Fractures and broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Sprains and strains
- Lacerations and contusions
Is the Golf Course or Country Club Always Responsible for Golf Cart Accidents?
While it’s not always the case, golf courses or country clubs can be held responsible if they fail to properly maintain their golf carts or the driving environment. Responsibility can also lie with other drivers, manufacturers, or even the golf cart occupants themselves depending on the situation.
What Should I Do If I’m Involved in a Golf Cart Accident at a Golf Course?
First, ensure your safety and seek medical attention if needed. Document the scene with photographs, gather witness information, and report the incident to the management. Then, contact an attorney to understand your rights and evaluate potential claims.
What Kind of Compensation Can I Receive in a Golf Cart Accident Case?
Compensation can include:
- Medical expenses, current and future
- Lost wages and loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Property damage
What if I’m Partially Responsible for the Golf Cart Accident?
Even if you’re partially at fault, you may still be able to receive compensation. Florida follows a “pure comparative negligence” rule, meaning you can recover damages reduced by your percentage of fault.
How Long Do I Have to File a Legal Claim in a Golf Cart Accident?
In Florida, you typically have four years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, this can vary depending on the specifics of your case, so it’s crucial to consult with an attorney as soon as possible.
How Long Will It Take to Resolve My Case?
The timeline for resolving a golf cart accident claim depends on the complexity of the case and whether it can be settled out of court or goes to trial. While we aim to resolve cases swiftly, our priority is ensuring you receive the maximum compensation.
