North Carolina is popular a popular golf destination. Our state has great weather statewide, and residents and tourists alike make playing golf a year-roundactivity.
Unfortunately, with a high amount of golf in North Carolina, accidents involving golf carts can also happen.
Injuries in Golf Cart Accidents
Golf cart accidents are common across the North Carolina, and can often result in serious and costly injuries. While accidents can happen to anyone – young or old – children can be especially susceptible to golf cart injuries due to their inexperience driving and controlling a golf cart. Injuries can range from broken bones and concussions, to even more serious injuries, such as spinal injuries and traumatic brain injuries. Since golf carts do not have seat belt, air bags, or other safety features, accidents involving golf carts can be extremely severe.
How do These Accidents Happen?
Aside from inexperience of young golf cart drivers, golf cart accidents can also be caused by drunk or inebriated drivers, or general dangerous mishandling of a golf cart. For example, golf carts can collide with other golf carts, motor vehicles, humans, trees, or other hazards. Some of the most serious golf cart accidents might not involves a collision with another object or person, but when the golf cart flips over, possibly landing on or trapping its drivers and passengers. Such accidents can result in serious injury or even death.
