Atlanta Golf Cart Accidents and Injuries
Golf carts are becoming increasingly popular for use as recreational vehicles, and as a primary mode of transportation in certain areas. Perhaps the most well-known golf cart community in Georgia is Peachtree City, which has 90 miles of a multi-use path for use by golf carts, pedestrians, and cyclists. Residents of Peachtree City own over 10,000 golf carts. In areas like Peachtree City where there are a large number of golf carts in operation, golf cart accidents are going to happen. Because golf carts do not have the same protections as cars, serious injuries can unfortunately result.
Do I Need an Attorney after a Golf Car Accident?
If you’ve been injured in a golf cart accident, you should hire an attorney as soon as possible. Golf cart accident cases aren’t like your typical car accident case. With a car accident, there’s often no dispute about what insurance applies.
With a golf cart accident though, the question can get a little bit trickier. We actually had a case several years ago that we took all the way to the Georgia Court of Appeals, that involved the dispute about whether a golf cart driver’s homeowners insurance covered him while he was driving a golf cart, and seriously injured our client.
We were able to prove that the homeowners insurance did apply, and it allowed our client to obtain a very significant recovery. If you’ve had a golf cart accident, it’s very important that you talk to somebody who’s had that experience working on golf cart accident cases, and locating all the insurance that’s going to apply, and to be able to cover your damages.
