Dallas Golf Cart

Suing the manufacturer because you fell off a golf cart sounds like the kind of exaggerated claim Americans are notorious for.

But golf cart accidents are no laughing matter. From 1990 to 2006, injuries and fatalities from riding in these small, open vehicles increased 123%, and they are still on the rise today. Meanwhile, golf carts have become not only more powerful but also a more common form of transportation off the course, particularly in retirement communities.

Have you or a loved one been injured by a golf cart? Morgan & Morgan can help. With 50 offices in 14 states, we combine local presence with national influence and clout. And unlike other personal injury law firms, we are not afraid to take on big insurance companies. We have a proven track record of getting favorable settlements for our clients.

What Makes Golf Carts So Dangerous?

Today's golf carts can reach speeds of 25 miles per hour and travel up to 40 miles on a single charge. For that reason, they are increasingly becoming the vehicle of choice for venues off the links, including retirement communities, resorts, parks, college campuses, and military bases.

But as their use increases, golf carts for the most part escape federal regulations. Many don't even have seat belts, which increases the likelihood that someone will fall out, especially off the back. In many states, children as young as 14 are allowed to drive golf carts. And because they are so frequently used in resort areas, there are many instances of drunk driving.

How Do Golf Carts Cause Injury?

The most common golf cart injury occurs when someone falls out. However, at least 10% of all such accidents happen when a cart runs someone over. In total, golf cart accidents send about 15,000 people to the emergency room each year.

One of the biggest hazards involving golf carts stems from the perception that they are simply for casual use. Owners often fail to maintain them properly. They also make mechanical alterations that can increase the likelihood that someone will be injured.
