Orlando Golf Cart
Golf carts are common in Florida, both on the golf course and in retirement communities. While most people use these vehicles safely every day, golf cart accidents are a serious — and growing — problem in this state’s communities. In the last two years alone, there were 35,000 emergency room visits from such crashes, some of which were fatal.

Common Causes of Golf Cart Accidents
Golf carts do not have doors, which means that occupants can fall out of them. There are no seatbelts and little to hold on to inside the cart, and ejections are particularly common when making left turns. A fall from a golf cart could cause concussions, head trauma, sprains and strains, broken bones, or death.
The lack of additional safety features, such as airbags, also means that crashes are devastating for passengers and drivers alike. If you are hurt in a regular auto accident, you have some measure of protection, whereas in a golf cart crash, drivers and passengers take the full force of the impact.
Rollover accidents and tip-overs can cause severe brain trauma, head wounds, and paralysis. These injuries come with devastating recoveries that may require lifelong medical care for you or a loved one.
Another concern with golf carts is that drivers may not follow the rules of the road. This is of particular concern in Florida retirement communities, where residents often use these vehicles instead of cars. Drivers may not come to a complete halt at stop signs, thinking this rule does not apply to golf carts. A driver who runs a stop sign could hit a pedestrian or another vehicle, causing severe injuries for multiple parties.
Golf carts also frequently appear in stunt videos on social media, with drivers crashing or hitting their friends for likes. It’s safe to anticipate more golf cart injuries going forward.
