Florida Golf Cart Accident Attorney
Helping people from Tampa to The Villages and statewide who have suffered a golf cart injury
Study after study tells the same story. About 15,000 people are injured in golf car accidents every year, with the number of incidents steadily increasing year after year, especially among older adults. Injuries include superficial cuts, scrapes, bruises, and facial lacerations; soft tissue muscle tears, sprains and strains; fractures; dislocations; head and neck injuries; and others, with many accident victims requiring hospitalization and some ending tragically in a fatality.
Accident rates are rising because golf carts are becoming more popular and more widely available every year, not just on the golf course but at a wide variety of sporting and recreational events and for private use in retirement villages and gated communities. Thanks to federal regulations, automobile manufacturers introduce new features to make cars safer every year, but golf carts remain the same as ever with little to no safety improvements. Golf carts continue to be manufactured without seat belts, mirrors, or even doors, and Florida law allows unlicensed individuals as young as 14 to operate them. It’s no wonder golf cart accidents are on the rise, but these facts don’t excuse the negligent driving and reckless behaviors that cause the accidents to happen.
The attorneys at GolfCartAttorney are golf cart accident attorneys serving accident victims across the state of Florida who have been injured in a golf cart collision, ejection, rollover, or other incident. Just as a golf cart is very different from a car, truck, or SUV, golf cart accidents are vastly different from car accidents. Even the applicable laws themselves are different. Simply put, don’t go to a car accident lawyer for a golf cart accident. Go to the golf cart accident attorneys who have handled these cases many times before, who devote a significant portion of their law practice to these unique cases, and who have a record of success you can count on. Call the Law Offices of Frank D. Butler, and speak to an experienced Florida golf cart accident attorney today.
Florida Golf Cart Injuries
Some lawyers out there advertise that they handle every kind of personal injury matter, from car accidents to slip and falls to dog bites. While it’s true that most personal injury cases involve common issues related to the law of negligence, certain types of accidents such as those involving boats, semi-trucks or, yes, golf carts, have unique sets of laws and facts that don’t apply to other types of personal injury claims. For the best shot at the best result, you need a law firm that is experienced in handling your particular kind of accident and has a record of success helping other injury victims in similar situations. At GolfCartAttorney, we don’t say we do every kind of personal injury. We also don’t just say we do golf cart accidents, we actually do them, often and on a regular basis.
