Golf Cart Accidents in Crystal River, FL

The Sunshine State has the most golf courses in the country with approximately 1,250. But golf carts aren't just for golfers. For example, there are more than 50,000 golf carts for the 125,000 residents of the sprawling Florida community The Villages! So what is the cause of the golf cart accidents?

  • Rollovers due to overloading/overcrowding
  • No seatbelts (or not wearing them)
  • Drunk or distracted driving
  • Sharp turns and reversing downhill
  • Driving over wet, muddy, or uneven terrain
  • Leaving the brake unlocked upon exiting
  • Racing or other horseplay

Of course, inattentive or intoxicated motorists also cause many golf cart accidents, and that's where we come in. If you've been involved in a golf cart accident in Crystal River due to the negligence of someone else, we can help.

Who's At Fault?

Put Our Crystal River Golf Cart Accident Injury Lawyers On the Case!

 

Golf cart accidents in Crystal River are typically treated like any other vehicular accident and are just as serious. However, there are additional complexities when there is an accident involving a golf cart.

Florida golf carts do not need to be registered or insured, and drivers do not need a valid license because they cannot be operated on Florida roads; however, some local ordinances may allow them on roads which complicates matters. Additionally, some golf carts can be modified to qualify as a "low-speed vehicle," which does require registration, Personal Injury Protection insurance, and an operator's license.  So as you can see, the outcome of a golf cart accident could vary depending on who was at fault, where the cart was driving at the time (lawfully or unlawfully), and whether or not it is considered a low-speed vehicle.

Rather than guess your way through the aftermath of a golf cart accident, it's best to have an experienced Crystal River golf cart accident injury attorney at your side who will help you:

  • Find out whether the golf cart is properly insured (and if it needed to be)
  • Identify what its issued use was (road use or usage inside a community or complex)
  • Determine how to handle filing a claim
  • Understand the potential compensation you may receive for your injuries
  • Know your rights with insurance companies
  • Keep in contact with you during your case, providing your attorney's cell phone number so you can reach out directly anytime.
  • Obtain all documentation available to support your injury case including medical bills and physician testimony.
  • Collect any available evidence related to your accident, including any proof that the other party is at fault when possible.
  • Defend your rights throughout the legal process, and we do not collect a fee unless you win!
