How Can You Determine Liability in a Golf Cart Accident?

Depending on the unique circumstances of your golf cart accident, one or more parties may be responsible for your injuries. In order to establish that another’s negligence caused your injuries and is liable for damages, you have the burden of proof to establish the following:

  • You were owed a proper duty of care
  • The liable party failed to uphold that reasonable duty of care
  • The violation of the duty of care was the direct cause of the golf cart accident
  • You suffered economic and non-economic losses

Determining liability may be complex. At Hilliard Law, we can obtain the necessary evidence to demonstrate negligence by conducting an extensive investigation into the accident. Using photos, videos, witness testimony, and other essential information, we can successfully prove elements of negligence that determine who may be held liable for the varied losses you may have suffered.

The following parties may be held responsible for the golf cart accident:

  • Vehicle drivers
  • Golf cart part manufacturers
  • Golf cart repair shops or mechanics
  • Pedestrians
  • Golf cart passengers
  • City or municipality

With the help of an experienced golf cart accident lawyer at Hilliard Law, we can fight for the maximum monetary compensation you are owed and hold the negligent party accountable for your present and future losses.

Damages You May Collect Through a Golf Cart Accident Claim

A severe golf cart accident can leave victims and their families emotionally, physically, and financially devastated. Depending on the nature of their injuries, a golf cart accident injury victim may have to endure extended hospital stays as well as physical and psychological therapies. These costs can add up quickly, financially overwhelming victims and their families.

If you have been harmed in a golf cart accident, you should not be held responsible for all of the costs associated with your own recovery. The skilled attorneys at Hilliard Law can help you file a claim for damages against the negligent party responsible for your accident. Some of the damages our team may be able to help you collect include:


Whether you were in a hospital recuperating, your doctor told you to take time off work to let your injuries heal, or your condition prevents you from doing your job, there are many reasons you may have missed out on paychecks in the aftermath of a golf cart accident. With reduced earnings, it can be difficult to cover your everyday expenses, let alone the many costs associated with suffering a serious injury.

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, you may be able to seek compensation for earnings lost as a direct result of the wreck. Additionally, if your injuries are likely to affect your ability to make a living down the line, you may also be able to factor future lost wages into settlement approximations.


Even a relatively minor injury can still cost a small fortune to treat—especially if you don’t have a comprehensive health insurance plan. If you suffered a catastrophic injury or permanent disability, you may be straddled with medical expenses for the rest of your life. Typically, healthcare costs will make up the lion’s share of the financial award in a personal injury case.


If you had to hire someone to oversee tasks you can no longer do because of your injuries, the cost of such services could be factored into the eventual settlement. However, if it emerges that you hired someone even though you were perfectly able to handle a specific task on your own, it’s unlikely that you will receive compensation for the associated expenses. As such, you should never delegate tasks you can oversee yourself.


The full impact of a serious wreck isn’t just limited to receipts, invoices, and estimates. Some of the effects of an injury are invisible scars that will still have a major impact on your quality of life. For instance, the pain associated with a severe injury can make it difficult to enjoy your hobbies or quality time with your family. Alternatively, some injuries can prevent you from engaging in physical activity, driving, or impede your ability to live independently.

In Texas, accident victims have a right to seek compensation for such intangible losses. While these damages can be difficult to prove, there are many strategies you could use to demonstrate your non-economic damages such as keeping detailed logs in a personal injury journal, undergoing a psychological evaluation, and getting family, friends, and colleagues to provide testimony on the ways in which your injuries have affected you.

When you retain our experienced attorneys, we will partner with you to understand every detail of your case and the damages you may be eligible to collect.

Statute of Limitations for a Golf Cart Accident Claim

In Texas, there is a legal time limit to file personal injury claims, known as the statute of limitations. If you have been injured in any sort of automotive accident, you have two years from the accident date to file a claim for compensation.

While this may seem like a long time, it is in your best interests to act sooner rather than later. Witnesses to your accident may forget what they saw or move away before they can testify. Additionally, the insurance company may employ tactics to stall your case.

Steps to Follow After Your Golf Cart Accident

After a Texas golf cart accident, it is essential that you take the following steps in order to ensure your safety and protect your legal rights to fair compensation in a golf cart accident claim:


If you have suffered a severe injury or sustained more than $1,000 in damages, you are legally required to report your accident to law enforcement. In the event of an accident, police reports also act as an essential piece of evidence should you decide to pursue a claim. Additionally, if any traffic violations occurred, evidence of those citations may help prove liability later down the road.


If you are not too severely injured from your accident, collect valuable evidence at the accident scene. This could mean taking pictures and videos of the positioning of the vehicles, the damage, and other vital details. It is also imperative that you exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver, as well as from any witnesses that may be able to provide a detailed account of what occurred.


Seeking medical attention for all injuries is an essential step in protecting your legal rights in a golf cart accident. Injuries may be latent or internal and may need a professional evaluation from a healthcare provider. If you wait to be treated and your injuries worsen, your insurance company may deny that your injuries were connected to the accident. Medical documentation, such as treatment plans, diagnoses, and imaging tests, are important to your case and act as objective evidence of the amount of compensation you may be eligible to recover.


Working with a seasoned Texas golf cart accident lawyer, you will have an aggressive advocate on your side, ready to build a successful claim. At Hilliard Law we conduct comprehensive investigations on your behalf, obtain evidence pertinent to your claim, establish liability, and fight for the maximum, fair compensation you deserve.
