Houston Golf Cart Accident Lawyer

Golf cart tipped on side

Our Houston golf cart accident lawyer will help you fight for the maximum compensation you deserve due to accident-related losses, such as costly medical expenses, lost wages, and emotional suffering.

Golf carts are a cost-effective way to get around, and for Houston residents, it may be more convenient to use these low-speed vehicles than cars to travel to local shops, get around college campuses, or around their neighborhoods. While, generally, golf carts are a safe mode of transportation, there are many people that get injured every year due to driver negligence. Between 2010 and 2019, there were over 60,000 golf cart-related injuries that required immediate medical care.

Steps to Take Following a Houston Golf Cart Accident

In order to protect your legal rights and wellbeing following a Houston golf cart accident, you must follow specific steps to bolster your claim for damages due to negligence:

  • Call Law Enforcement to the Accident Scene. In Houston, if you have sustained a minimum of $1,000 in damages or severe injuries, you must report your accident to local law enforcement. Police reports are also essential to golf cart accident claims, as they offer an account of the accident. This may be especially helpful in determining liability if any traffic violations were documented.
  • Record Essential Evidence. If you are able, it may be helpful to record evidence in the form of pictures and videos of the accident scene. This may include the positioning of the vehicles, the weather, the traffic lights, the damage you sustained, and other details. You may also want to record a written account of the cause of your accident and how your injuries have impacted your life following the accident. Exchange information with the other driver as well as witnesses. Testimony from a witness may be a powerful source of evidence when building your golf cart accident claim.
  • Seek Medical Attention. If you have substantial injuries in a golf cart accident in Houston, it is essential to get medical attention immediately following your accident. Having medical documentation protects your legal rights and connects your accident to the losses you have sustained. If you wait to be treated or until your injuries worsen, your insurance company may deny that your injuries are the result of your accident. Evidence such as diagnoses, medical imaging, visit summaries, and treatment plans act as vital evidence and help determine the value of the compensation you may be able to recover.

Damages Recoverable in a Houston Golf Cart Accident

Damages can leave a significant toll on the lives of victims in the form of costly medical bills, lost wages, and emotional suffering. Depending on the severe injuries you have sustained, you may be able to recover economic and non-economic damages, including the following:

  • Present and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages and future earning potential
  • Emotional suffering
  • Disfigurement or disability
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

At Hilliard Law, our attorneys will work with you to assess the value of your claim and fight for the fair, maximum compensation you deserve so you can focus on your recovery. If someone else’s negligence caused your significant injuries, you should not have to pay the price for their mistakes.

Statute of Limitations in a Houston Golf Cart Accident

In order to recover the compensation you deserve in a golf cart accident claim, you must file within Texas’s set statute of limitations. If you file after the two-year period, your claim may be dismissed. Many factors may delay building your claim and gathering important evidence to establish liability, so it’s essential to act quickly.
