Florida is known for its lush golf courses. While most people enjoy the activity without incident, the reality is that Florida golf cart accidents are quite common. Some of these accidents can result in serious and long-term injuries. In most cases, a person who sustains an injury can file a claim for damages against the at-fault party. The at-fault party’s insurance company will then evaluate the case and make or deny payments for medical expenses and other losses accordingly.
A Florida appeals court recently issued an opinion in a case involving a female pedestrian who suffered injuries after being hit by a golf cart. The woman was walking along a path in a retirement community when she was hit by another resident driving a golf cart. Sadly, the operator of the golf cart who caused the crash did not have enough insurance coverage to properly compensate the victim for her harm. As a result, the woman had to file a claim under her own insurance policy’s underinsured motorist (UM) provision.
