Golf Injuries

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 Abramson Smith Waldsmith LLP, our attorneys are experienced in advocating for clients and their family members following an accident that caused a golf injury.

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 Abramson 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.
