Golf Injuries

An Excellent Reputation
Built On Success
In The Courtroom

Nothing is more important than recovery and compensation for your loved one after a severe injury. 

Dangerous Conditions On Golf Courses Lead To Injuries

Safety on a golf course is more than just ducking when someone yells, “Fore.” Risks are inherent on a golf course and there are certain steps a golfer must take. However, unforeseen dangers and hazards can result in serious, life-altering injuries. At Abraham Smith & Waldsmith, LLP, our attorneys are experienced in advocating for clients and their family members following an accident that caused a golf injury.

If you have been injured in a golf accident, contact us at 415-421-7995 or toll-free at 888-745-2988. We represent clients in the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout Northern California.

Inherent Risks Becoming Unnecessary Dangers

In junior golf camp clinics, school golf classes and matches, waivers of liability are often required. Essentially, the course owner does not want to be responsible for injuries. However, those documents typically do not cover golf injuries caused by gross negligence. Poorly maintained carts can crash or catch fire. The head of a rented golf club could fly off during a swing. Golf balls flying through the air are part of the environment when standing near the tee or hole. Clubs or parts of them striking a player on the head are not.

The Waiver May Not Be Enforceable

At Abraham Smith & Waldsmith, LLP, we review the waivers if one was signed. Many times, there are weaknesses in the verbiage, the language is oppressive or it is simply illegible. If gross negligence played a part in a golf injury, that contract may not hold up. A waiver is for protection, not for excuses related to negligence.

Vehicle Accidents

There are two things to establish in any motor vehicle accident case: the cause of the accident (fault) and the full cost of the injuries and losses. As we prepare your case, we will investigate both of these.


Abuse & Molestation

 Priests, ministers, church officials and workers, coaches, teachers, day care workers, park rangers, and other trusted adults who sexually molest children, ruin lives and cause irreparable psychological damage.


& Serious Injuries

People suffering from a brain injury, spinal cord injury or other severe injury will require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitative therapy and other long-term care.



Claims related to sports and recreation injuries can be complicated. These cases often include issues involving waivers and the “assumption of risk” defense.


& Spine Injuries

When you or a loved one suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI), life changes dramatically. Even mild TBIs can lead to years of recovery and rehabilitation.
