  • Golf Course Fatalities: Establishing Liability

    July 12, 2018

    The recent tragic death of a Mississauga golfer whose golf-cart lost control and crashed into a retaining wall has brought the issue of golf course injuries into sharp focus. Under Ontario’s Occupier’s Liability Act, the premises owner is responsible for ensuring the safety of all visitors to the property. If you or a dear one has been injured in such an accident, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer immediately. You may be entitled to compensation.

    Accidents are caused by someone’s fault or negligence. It’s important to determine whether the course is privately or publicly owned. In case it’s a government-owned property, governments are generally held by courts to be immune from liability for ordinary negligence.

    In the case cited above, individuals/entities can be held liable for injuries arising from operating a powered golf-cart. There are various categories under which a personal injury claim can be made: negligence, breach of warranty, strict products liability against the driver of the cart, manufacturer, seller and the owner of the golf course where the accident happened. If the accident occurred on a government property, the owner (the government) is not liable. In the case of golf cart injuries, the issue of contributory negligence will be raised by the defendants, their insurance companies and legal representatives. Robust evidence has to be provided to back your claim and our personal injury lawyers can help you assemble this.

    A knowledgeable personal injury lawyer from a reputed, well-established law firm can provide the right advice, assistance and advocacy.
