Golf Cart Accidents and Injuries on the Rise

Millions of people in the United States enjoy spending a day on the golf course. Golf carts are often a huge part of a golf outing, especially to help you cover large distances on a sprawling course. Golf carts are also increasingly used for transportation in other settings as well, such as airports, sports stadiums, retirement communities, and more. Golf carts are motor vehicles, just like motorbikes or cars, and unfortunately come with the risk of auto accidents and injuries. If you suffer injury in a golf cart accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries, and an experienced Coweta County accident lawyer can help.

 

According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) approximately 15,000 people in the United States suffer injuries on golf carts every year. People in golf carts are particularly susceptible to injury because these carts usually to not have safety features such as airbags or even seat belts. Some examples of negligence that can cause golf cart injuries include:

  • Impaired driving

  • Distracted driving

  • Speeding

  • Driving off marked pathways

  • Defective golf carts

These are only a few of the common causes of golf cart accidents. Many people who are in golf cart collisions fall out of the golf cart, which can cause additional injuries such as broken bones, head and brain trauma, and more.
