Numerous studies show go-cart accidents are responsible for death and serious injuries to children. Long-term physical therapy, immediate medical costs and hospital stays can cost a family a fortune over a lifetime.
NC Go-Cart Accidents
A six-year-old boy in eastern North Carolina's Duplin County recently died due to a go-cart accident. The go-cart was driven by Canyon River Hatcher who was crossing a road off NC Hwy 111 in Chinquapin when he was hit by a Honda minivan. The Honda driver was Tina Cavenaugh Batts, according to WRAL reports. Hatcher was driving his go-cart alongside his older brother who was also riding an ATV.
ATV and four-wheeler accidents happen on private properties and public roadways. Go-carts can travel up to 90 MPH. Speeding, faulty machinery, obstructions and other vehicles all contribute to four-wheeler accidents. Regardless if ATV drivers follow the law and keep their vehicle off public roads, accidents still happen. Within the past few years a young girl from England died by being suffocated when her scarf got tangled in a four-wheeler. If a go-cart accident occurs on a special track designed for the vehicles, victims may have cases for professional negligence if the property was not maintained properly.
