These easy-to-operate vehicles are convenient for golfers and golf course staff members. However, there is a risk of accidents on golf carts… especially when horseplay or alcohol is involved.
If you have been injured in a golf cart related crash, Auger & Auger can help. While many of our golf cart accident clients are worried about suing their friends, it is not your friend who will pay the bills. Nine out of ten times, we are able to settle claims out of court with the driver’s homeowner’s insurance. It is the insurer who will compensate victims for medical bills, lost income and personal injuries.
Pursuing a case after a golf car accident is important because injuries are often serious. Golf carts lack many of the safety standards found on cars and trucks, such as doors, seat belts, airbags and antilock brakes. These vehicles can reach speeds of up to 25 mph and are highly susceptible to rollovers. All of this makes it more likely your injuries will not be minor ones.
Of the estimated 15,000 annual golf car accidents, approximately 13,000 result in a visit to the hospital emergency department. Young males between the ages of 10-19 account for nearly 40 percent of all golf cart accidents, and half of those accidents involved ejection or falling from the golf cart.
