Unfortunately, accidents involving golf carts sometimes happen. And when they do, the injuries can often be very serious, especially when golf cart accidents involve larger, motorized vehicles, including cars and trucks.
Knowing what to do after a golf cart accident can be confusing. Who has jurisdiction over such accidents? Do the same laws regarding car accidents apply to golf cart accidents? That’s why it’s important to talk to a Villages golf cart accident lawyer who knows how the legal system works here. That’s why you need the Law Offices of Brent C. Miller, P.A. on your side.
Common causes of accidents
Accidents involving golf carts caused by other drivers happen for many different reasons. Some of the most common causes include:
- Distracted drivers (especially texting drivers)
- Reckless drivers (especially speeding drivers)
- Drivers who run a stop sign or traffic light
- Drunk driving accidents
- Aggressive drivers
You have the right to use the roads in The Villages designed for golf cart use. When other drivers fail to respect these specially-marked lanes, those drivers should be held accountable for their actions. Rules exist for a reason. And people who break the rules – and cause serious golf cart accidents – should be held responsible for their actions.
We’re here to serve you
You might think you don’t need a lawyer if another driver clearly caused your golf cart accident. But the reality is most accidents involving golf carts and larger, motorized vehicles often turn out to be very complicated.
The other driver might deny doing anything wrong. Or they might try to blame you. You may also need to deal with The Villages’ board of supervisors, The Villages Homeowners’ Association (VHA) or various attorneys. And then there are the insurance companies. They’ll often do everything they can to reduce or deny your accident claim.
That’s not right. You didn’t do anything wrong. You shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s reckless or negligent behavior. Put your trust in a law firm that believes in law and order.
