San Jose Golf Course Injury Attorney

Golf Resort Injury Lawyer in the Bay Area

Golf courses are generally thought to be safe. Golfers will usually expect to spend as much time as necessary on a course, without being subject to risks that could lead to accidents and injuries. However, there are some situations where golfers, others who use a golf course, or people who engage in other activities at a golf resort may be placed in danger of harm. When accidents occur, injury victims will need to understand how they can seek compensation from a golf resort owner or other liable parties through a premises liability claim.

When you or a family member has been injured at a golf course in California, you need the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney. The Law Office of John J. Garvey, III can provide you with representation, helping you take the correct steps to hold a resort's owners or managers liable for the damages you have experienced. He will work to gather evidence showing that you were injured because of negligence, and he will advocate on your behalf during legal proceedings, fighting to obtain the full compensation you need and deserve.

Accidents Leading to Injuries at Golf Courses

Golf courses in the San Francisco Bay area and elsewhere present multiple risk factors for golfers, visitors, and workers. Injuries may occur in situations such as:

  • A golfer or other visitor may trip and fall on steps, on uneven ground, or where there are unmarked holes.
  • A guest at a golf resort may be struck on the head by an errant golf ball.
  • Someone on the grounds at a golf resort may be hit by a golf cart.
  • A person may be injured by a golf cart that did not function correctly because of inadequate maintenance.
  • An altercation between golfers may result in an assault, causing a person to suffer an injury.

After a serious accident at a golf resort in the San Jose area or anywhere else, it is important to seek knowledgeable legal counsel to help you protect your rights and obtain monetary compensation. Contact the Law Office of John J. Garvey, III to schedule a free initial consultation with an experienced San Jose golf course injury lawyer.

Recovering From a Golf Injury Takes Time and Money

Following a serious injury, you may require emergency medical care, ongoing therapy and follow-up treatment, and perhaps medical equipment or devices such as crutches, a wheelchair, or handrails for your shower. Your injury may fall under one of these categories:

  • A blunt-force injury requiring medical evaluation and care, pain control, and time to heal
  • A laceration requiring stitches
  • A sprain or bone fracture
  • A head injury
  • An eye, mouth, or nose injury

Attorney John Garvey will work to ensure that you will be able to receive compensation that covers all necessary medical expenses. Depending on the circumstances of your case, other forms of compensation may also be available to address damages such as lost income or pain and suffering.
