“Routine feeds the illusion of safety.”
Golf carts have become some of the most popular recreational vehicles of families all of the United States. Convenience and relatively low speeds make them seem safe enough to let kids of almost any age drive. However the illusion of safety and relieved inhibitions have lead to some serious untended consequences. Golf cart accidents can cause severe injuries and even fatalities.
If you have been involved in a golf cart related accident, you ned to know your rights. There are laws to protect you from the negligence or carelessness of liable parties that may have contributed to the cause or that could have stopped the accident from occurring altogether.
The counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney can help you understand the multiplicity of factors that may have lead to your injury. Some of these factors could include:
- A golf course’s poorly designed inclines or cart paths
- Manufacturer’s defects
- Improper maintenance of the golf cart
- Insufficient hazard repair
- Failure to warn of hazards
- Insufficient signage (eg. pedestrian crossing, golf cart crossing)
- Poorly paved or maintained roads and pathways
In addition, the right personal injury attorney can help you understand things like the limitations of any waivers you may have signed, how to negotiate with your insurance adjuster, how to gather and submit relevant paperwork to strengthen your case (such as medical bills and doctors reports).
