Golf Cart Accident in The Villages?
With the ever-increasing number of retirees moving to The Villages each year, we continue to see a rise in the number of golf carts being utilized on the streets. And with that, comes an increase in golf cart accidents.
If you are involved in a golf cart accident in The Villages or surrounding areas, there are several things to remember:
- Do not leave the scene of the accident.
- Call 911 and get medical attention if you need it. It is also important to call the police even if there is are no serious injuries. You will likely need a police report to file a claim with your insurance company (even if it is just for property damage to your golf cart).
- Write down the names, phone numbers, addresses, drivers license numbers, and insurance information for all drivers involved in the accident.
- If you have a cell phone camera or camera in your golf cart, take pictures of the accident scene and all golf carts/vehicles involved.
- Contact your insurance company (including your golf cart insurance company, automobile insurance company, and homeowner’s insurance company, as they may all provide some type of coverage).
- Follow-up with a medical provider. A lot of injuries resulting from golf cart accidents are not immediately apparent. So it is very important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible following a golf cart accident unless you are absolutely certain you were not injured.
