Vero Beach Crash Left Passenger Seriously Injured

At the Law Offices of Keith Bregoff, P.A., our Vero Beach car accident attorney has previously discussed how Florida passengers have rights after being injured in a vehicle collision that was caused by either the driver of the vehicle they were in, or another negligent third-party driver.

The question becomes, does the negligent driver have to be behind the wheel of a vehicle that is a car, truck, or SUV?

The answer is no, and a crash that occurred in Vero Beach last month explains why.

27-Year-Old-Man Driving a Golf Cart Had Blood-Alcohol Content Level Over Twice The Legal Driving Limit

On September 1, 2022, a 27-year-old man was jailed in Vero Beach following a crash where he was operating a golf cart, and his passenger was ejected and seriously injured. Police said the passenger was taken to the intensive care unit at a trauma center.

Reports show when officers arrived, the passenger was unconscious, but breathing and was taken to HCA Florida Lawnwood Hospital in Fort Pierce with a severe head injury, police said.

Much like a vehicle driver who gets behind the wheel while he or she is intoxicated, injures a passenger onboard, and is arrested for their negligent actions, those who cause accidents with injuries on golf carts, scooters, four-wheelers, or other ATVs can also be held liable for their reckless behavior.
