Golf Course Accident
With more golf courses than any other state, millions of people are drawn to Florida’s sunny skies, warm weather, and beautifully-manicured courses every year. The state boasts such nationally recognized courses as Seminole Golf Club in June Beach, TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Calusa Pines in Naples, and Jupiter Hills Club in Tequesta.
Yet despite its leisurely reputation, there are risks to golf. An improperly maintained course can lead to injury. Dangerous dips that golf carts may experience when driving over broken or uneven walkways can knock golfers out of the cart. Overgrown landscape can create a hazard if it blocks or interferes with a golfer’s line of sight as they may not see other golfers on the course when they hit the ball. Malfunctioning equipment, such as warning systems for lightning, can lead to injury if golfers aren’t aware of impending danger.
Serious injuries to the head, neck, or back, broken bones, and sprains can occur if a golf course is not properly maintained. These injuries may require days, weeks, even months of medical treatment and recovery time. They can also result in the victim losing their income if they are unable to work. If you were injured on the golf course, you should speak with a Florida golf course accident attorney to find out what your rights are and what legal remedies may be available to you.
