Golf Cart Accidents – A Growing Concern

 

As more and more people relocate to Manatee County’s Gulf Coast beach towns such as Holmes Beach, Anna Maria Island, and Longboat Key, they are finding it easier to travel around via golf cart. Some of our firm’s own attorneys live in Holmes Beach and drive their golf cart as their primary vehicle while in town.

The increase in golf carts has inevitably led to accidents with regular vehicles, as they share the road. Because of the size difference between a car or SUV and a golf cart, these accidents usually result in serious injuries to the golf cart driver or passengers. In fact, Mackey Law Group has one such case now where a truck hit our client’s golf cart while she was sitting at an intersection and severely broke our client’s hand.

From a law perspective, handling a golf cart accident is not the same as a regular automobile accident – this is mostly due to insurance. There are unique insurance issues that must be determined/analyzed to ensure that coverage exists and to obtain the maximum financial compensation for the injured client.
