Lake County Golf Cart Accident Lawyer

Oldham & Smith Defends Golf Cart Accidents in Florida

Golf carts and pedestrians often share the same sidewalk – an issue we do not face driving an automobile – which increases the chances for golf cart accidents involving pedestrians. Golf cart drivers also have to worry about the traffic of other golf cart drivers on very narrow driving paths or walkways. A collision at just 20 miles per hour could still cause severe injuries to the parties involved.

At Oldham & Smith, we specialize in cases involving golf cart wrecks. Call today for a  free consultation!

Golf Cart Accident Statistics

Golf carts have become extremely popular outside of the golf course. Many Lake County residents use golf carts to navigate large university campuses, retirement communities, or ranch lands. While their versatility has increased, their build and safety standards have not. Golf carts are built with an open frame that allows them to be cost-efficient and affordable to just about anyone – unfortunately, our golf cart accident attorneys understand that this also means that they lack certain safety features available in a regular car.

We are experienced in golf cart accident cases involving:

  • Collisions between two golf carts
  • Overcrowding (too many passengers on a cart)
  • Drunk driving
  • Golf carts struck by cars while crossing roads
  • Pedestrians, bicyclists, and golfers hit by carts
  • Sharp turns and reversals
  • Wet, slippery roads/environments
  • Passengers thrown from carts or pinned when carts tip over
  • Injuries to children
  • Distractions (such as eating, drinking, texting, or not paying attention to surroundings)
  • Brain and spinal cord injury
  • Wrongful death

What To Do After a Golf Cart Accident

After an accident, we will begin an immediate investigation to identify all parties responsible, such as government agencies or their contractors guilty of negligent road maintenance, reckless drivers, underage golf cart drivers, and drunk drivers. As your attorneys, we will keep you fully informed about your case at all times. We will be with you every step of the way until your case is resolved.

For most clients, recovering compensation for medical care is primary. We understand that a serious injury could leave you or a loved one unable to work, support your family, or even manage day-to-day tasks. When your family is affected by a serious accident or injury, you can trust that our attorneys will pursue every available avenue of recovery to help you rebuild your life.

Dependable Golf Cart Wreck Litigation & Trial Attorneys

According to Florida law, a golf cart is “a motor vehicle that is designed and manufactured for operation on a golf course for sporting or recreational purposes and that is not capable of exceeding speeds of 20 miles per hour.” While the legal definition of a golf cart is easy to understand, when it comes to golf cart accidents, it is not always so easy to understand who may be at fault.

We believe that it is important that you receive compensation for any injuries you sustain from a golf cart accident. Our team can help you receive what you are entitled to. We can help answer any questions you have about the financial burden you may be facing due to your injuries such as medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

These kinds of accidents can happen out of the blue and you may be facing medical and financial stresses you never have before. Our Lake County golf cart accident attorneys want you to focus on your recovery while we handle the rest.

Just like cars, if you own a golf cart you can choose to purchase golf cart insurance. Many homeowners associations in the state of Florida require that a golf cart is insured, especially in communities where golf carts are the primary source of transportation. There are different types of golf cart insurance to choose from, depending on how you use the vehicle. Accidents can happen, and they can happen fast, so if you plan to use your golf cart often, it may be beneficial to purchase insurance to cover yourself should an accident occur.

Free Consultation

We do not charge an attorney fee for an initial consultation with you about your golf cart accident injury case. We also cover all expenses until the end of a case, when we are paid a portion of the funds recovered. If we are unable to recover compensation for you, you do not owe us a fee.
