Golf Cart Accidents
Golf carts can cause serious, even fatal, accidents. While the four-wheeled vehicles cannot go any faster than 15 miles per hour, the consequences of an accident can be devastating, since the carts lack common safety features that could protect drivers and passengers.
If you were harmed in a golf cart accident, you have legal recourse. Learn more about such incidents and how our personal injury attorneys can help.

Golf Cart Injuries
Golf carts may look safe as someone is puttering around the golf course community, but looks can be deceiving. In the last two years, 35,000 people visited the emergency room for golf cart-related injuries.
These vehicles have no common safety features, such as seatbelts or airbags. While aftermarket seatbelts can be installed, they’re not enough to prevent serious injuries from rollovers or impact crashes.
Compare golf carts to cars, which have crumple zones that are designed to take the impact in a crash. Steering columns in standard cars are likewise designed to absorb force so it isn’t passed on to you. Golf carts lack these features, which means passengers absorb all the impact of a crash.
The lack of doors on golf carts means that passengers can fall out because there's little to hold onto when carts turn. Falls from these vehicles can cause head injuries, physical trauma, or death.
There's no way around it: Golf carts are not safe. If you are harmed in a related accident, our personal injury attorneys can fight for your rights under the law.
Our lawyers may be able to obtain damages that reflect:
- Physical trauma
- Pain and emotional strain
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
