You never expect a friendly round of golf to end with a trip to the hospital, but it happens far too often. It’s even more unfortunate that many golf cart accidents are caused by negligence and are therefore preventable. If you’ve been hurt in a golf cart accident in Decatur, you can demand compensation from the negligent party who caused the accident.
A Decatur personal injury lawyer from Kaine Law can help. Our personal injury firm has been fighting for the rights of accident victims for multiple decades. We help our clients by handling the financial details of accident recovery, so they can focus on making the best physical recovery possible.
We Can Help Prove Negligence Caused Your Decatur Golf Cart Accident
Golf cart accident cases in Georgia are personal injury cases, which means you must prove your accident meets Georgia’s legal qualifications for negligence to demand damages. Georgia’s standard of negligence has the following four points:
- Duty of care– Golf cart operators have a duty of care to operate the carts safely, minimizing the chances of injury to passengers and other golfers.
- Breach of duty– We can help demonstrate that the operator breached their duty of care in some fashion (e.g., driving too fast, failing to yield to other golfers, etc.)
- Causation- We must show how the negligent party’s breach of duty of care caused an accident.
- Damages– Finally, our Decatur golf cart accident attorneys will work to show that you have suffered damages because of the accident.

Your Decatur Golf Cart Accident Attorney Will Handle the Insurance Company and Settlement Negotiations for You
One of the worst things about being injured in an accident is that it leaves you physically and emotionally compromised at a time when you need to be 100% focused. Dealing with insurance companies or legal representatives for negligent golf cart drivers can be exhausting and stressful. If you’re already hurt, this additional stress and aggravation can be overwhelming and distract you from your recovery.
That won’t be the case if a Decatur golf cart accident attorney from our firm is representing you. We will handle the phone calls and negotiations with the other party or their representatives. We will ensure we file your case on time and in the correct jurisdiction. If negotiations are unsuccessful, we will prepare for trial.
Throughout the process, we will keep you updated and ensure you understand what stage of the process your case is in. We believe in treating clients like family members, and a big part of that is giving them the peace of mind they need to focus on their recovery. We do that by putting you at ease that we are handling your case with professionalism and compassion.

What Damages Can You Seek in Golf Cart Accidents?
Golf carts can travel at speeds up to 30 miles per hour and have very little safety equipment. In fact, there aren’t even any doors to keep you inside the cart if it turns over. These are two reasons golf cart accidents can cause serious injuries to anyone involved. That’s why you’re entitled to demand reimbursement for the cost of treating your accident-related injuries.
If the injuries from your accident keep you from working, you’re also entitled to demand reimbursement for your lost wages. In severe cases where you are so seriously injured that you can no longer continue in your chosen profession, we may demand a lifetime of lost wages with adjustments for inflation. This would be in addition to the cost of repairing or replacing any personal property damaged in the accident.
You can also demand compensation for non-economic damages, such as emotional and physical losses caused by your accident. Far more than medical bills result from serious injuries. You may also endure significant physical pain, emotional anguish, and a diminished quality of life while you recover. Our Decatur golf cart accident lawyers will demand economic and non-economic damages based on the facts in your case.
What Are the Damages in Your Golf Cart Accident?
The amount of damages is different in every golf cart accident case because it is based on the specific circumstances of each accident victim. The total of your medical bills and other economic damages plus your non-economic damages will be different than that of another accident victim, even one who was sitting next to you in the golf cart at the time of the accident.
If you decide to work with a Decatur golf cart accident attorney from our firm, we can give you our opinion on the potential value of your case. Once we have all the facts, we will be in a better position to advise you.
