Many Rainham residents love to play golf at the weekend – either on a local course or further afield. Golf is a fantastic sport providing fresh air, exercise and physical and intellectual challenges for the participants. Thankfully it is also a very safe sport and enjoys a much better safety record than some contact sports such as rugby. However, golfing accidents do occur and they can leave people having to seek the services of a lawyer who works for ‘no win, no fee*’ on Rainham golf cases.
A popular way of finding a lawyer who will work for ‘no win, no fee*’ on Rainham golf cases is calling Accident Advice Helpline. Here are some examples of the sort of case that these lawyers can help with.
Lawyers working for ‘no win, no fee*’ on Rainham golf cases – golf buggy rollover accidents
Lawyers working for ‘no win, no fee*’ on Rainham golf cases may have to deal with some very seriously injured people. One example of a golf course accident that can result in serious injuries is a golf buggy rolling over. This can happen if it is travelling downhill and begins to accelerate uncontrollably. The golf buggy may leave the path and fall over an embankment, down a steeper slope or even into one of the many lakes or rivers that are located around golf courses.
Golf buggy drivers sometimes can also lose control when they are travelling downhill because buggies only have brakes on the rear axle wheels. This causes the rear tyres to lock and skid whilst the front tyres continue free-rolling. This can cause the driver to think that the brakes are not working and so they apply the brakes even more vigorously which just makes the skid worse – the vehicle becomes out of control. The risk of this happening can be minimised by providing drivers with sufficient instruction on how to drive a buggy safely.
Lawyers working for ‘no win, no fee*’ on Rainham golf cases – golf buggy ejection accidents
A great many golf buggies do not have seat belts fitted and even where they are fitted people may not use them. This means that during a sharp turn it is possible for the forces to be great enough to throw or eject people out of the buggy. If it is travelling at slow speeds and the passenger lands on soft ground then no-one will get injured. However, if the buggy is in a car park and travelling at speed then the passenger can be thrown out in the path of another vehicle and be seriously injured. This can be prevented by the provision and use of hand rails and seatbelts and by instruction on safe speeds. Accident Advice Helpline can advise you and guide you through the legal process. They can be contacted any time of the day or night and on 365 days a year.
