Phoenix Golf Cart Accidents
Phoenix Area Personal Injury Lawyer
In the city of Surprise, Arizona, it is legal to drive golf carts on the street. This means that drivers and passengers in golf carts are subject to the same dangers that other vehicles face while on the road—particularly the dangers of getting into an accident. In fact, these vehicles are placed at even higher risk, considering that they are more open and have less protective covering as other vehicles, such as cars, trucks and buses. Other vehicles are larger and much heavier, which means that they can do a great amount of damage to golf carts in traffic accidents.

We can help you collect evidence for proving liability and then negotiate reasonable compensation on your behalf. We can also take your personal injury matter to court if a fair settlement cannot be secured.
Causes of Golf Cart Accidents
The potential causes of golf cart accidents are similar to the causes of other types of car accidents. Collisions may be caused by drunk driving, distracted driving, reckless driving, road rage, traffic violations and more. These violations may be carried out by the driver of either vehicle. There may be cases in which drivers of regular street vehicles fail to provide the golf carts with enough space, or there may be scenarios in which golf cart drivers fail to abide by the regular rules of the road. In other cases, accidents may be caused by defects with the golf carts, such those resulting from manufacturing errors or poor maintenance or improper/unsafe equipment.
Regardless of what caused your golf cart accident, we want to help you get properly compensated for your injuries. Contact Gerber Injury Law so our attorney can help you file a personal injury claim or lawsuit following your collision.
