Along with all the slips, trips and falls we see on comedy clip shows, we often see segments of sports accidents. While these programmes do offer light-hearted evening entertainment, if you have actually been involved in accidents on golf buggies, you may not remember the event as quite so humorous.
Accidents on golf buggies
When we participate in sports, there is always the risk of sustaining a sport-related injury. In the case of golfing, where you are also sometimes required to drive from hole to hole, the risk of sustaining injury due to accidents on golf buggies increases the risk to participant health and safety.
Common accidents on golf buggies include, but are not limited to:
- Falling out of the buggy during travel, due to absence of doors
- Collisions with golfers or other golf buggies
- Full or partial turnover of the buggy when moving, due to uneven terrain or foreign objects
- Lake-related water accidents on golf buggies
- Strikes to the vehicle, the driver or the passenger, by a golf ball in play
Placing blame for accidents on golf buggies
At times, accidents on golf buggies can occur through no fault of your own. Perhaps you were not shown how to operate the golf buggy properly, or you slipped when disembarking a poorly maintained vehicle, or maybe you sustained a sport-related injury due to someone recklessly driving a golf buggy?
No matter the nature of the accidents on golf buggies, if you feel someone else is liable for the harm you have suffered, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation.
