Golf Cart & Utility Vehicle Accident Attorneys in Austin

Assisting Injured Involved in Accidents

Every year, approximately 15,000 golf cart accidents result in injuries that require medical attention. Golf carts and other types of utility vehicles typically lack the standard protections—such as doors, seatbelts, and airbags—that normal passenger vehicles have. Because of this, even relatively minor accidents can lead to major injuries.

At Howry Breen & Herman, we assist clients with personal injury claims for cases involving golf cart and utility vehicle accidents. Our attorneys have achieved numerous record-setting results for our clients, and we are prepared to aggressively advocate for the maximum compensation you deserve. If you or your loved one was injured in a golf cart or utility vehicle accident in Austin or the surrounding areas, contact our firm for a free case evaluation.

Call (512) 430-4844 or fill out an online contact form to get started.

How Do Golf Cart & Utility Vehicle Accidents Occur?

The most common type of golf cart accident occurs when the golf cart flips over. The same is true for all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). Because these are open-air vehicles that lack safety restraints, passengers can easily be thrown from a golf cart or ATV when it flips over. In some cases, a golf cart may flip over due to a defective, top-heavy design. In other instances, an accident can occur due to the negligence of another vehicle driver, motorist, or even pedestrian.

Some of the most common causes of golf cart accidents include:

  • Defective golf carts, vehicles, or parts
  • Unsafe driving behaviors
  • Operating a golf cart after consuming alcohol
  • Inexperienced drivers
  • Distracted driving

Surprisingly, most golf cart accidents do not occur on the golf course. In fact, statistics show that many accidents occur when golf carts are used on or near public and private roads. This is especially true when golf carts are used for entertainment or driven by children.

How Our Firm Can Help

Golf cart and other utility cart collisions with other carts, pedestrians, and even large passenger vehicles can lead to severe, life-altering injuries. If you or your loved one was injured as a result of someone else’s careless, reckless, or negligent actions, you are likely facing massive medical bills, not to mention immense pain and suffering. You should not have to face these consequences on your own.
