He has been successfully handling golf cart accident cases for over 20 years, including cases involving single cart rollovers, rear end collisions with other carts, accidents with automobiles, golfers struck by golf carts, and more. We know how to fight for your rights and will work hard to get you compensation for losses.

Golf Cart Accident Risks

Charlotte residents and visitors alike are fortunate to have the perfect weather to golf for most of the year. There are more than 70 golf courses in the Charlotte and surrounding areas, and as more courses pop up in the Charlotte area, so do more golf carts.

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.

Golf Carts Are Highly Susceptible to Rollovers

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.

Golf Cart Safety Tips

To keep yourself and your passengers safe, consider the following:

  • Always maintain control and be aware of weather and terrain.
  • Do not operate a golf cart while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Steer clear of distractions when driving a golf cart, just as you would in a motor vehicle.
  • Horseplay or recklessness can cause serious injuries. A golf cart is not a toy and should not be treated like one.
  • Drivers and passengers should keep all body parts inside the golf cart and keep both feet firmly on the floor for passenger stability. Do not carry more passengers than the golf cart was designed to hold.
  • The back platform was not meant to seat passengers, and passengers should not stand while the vehicle is in motion. Standing in a golf cart causes the center of gravity to change, so the golf cart can tip over more easily.
  • When driving a golf cart, avoid sharp turns while traveling at significant speed and watch out for slopes or wet conditions. Excessive speed during a turn may cause the cart to flip.
