Golf Cart Accidents
Golf Cart accidents are common and can lead to severe injuries and long-lasting medical conditions. Every year upward of 15,000 people are injured severe enough to warrant a trip to the hospital. Golf Cart accidents can be extremely serious and some of the causes of injury can include:
- Reckless driving or joyriding
- Underestimating the cart’s power
- Inattentiveness, distraction, or negligence
- Uneven grounds (potholes, roots, slopes, etc)
The most common injuries are bruises and lacerations, crush injuries, broken bones, head injuries and most of these injuries are caused by ejections from the golf cart. The majority of people ejected from golf carts are retired people however you might be surprised to know that 40% off all accidents involving golf carts are associated with children.
