Going golfing can be a fun way to get exercise and socialize with friends. To get from hole to hole, and to navigate the grounds, it’s common for golfers to ride on golf carts that they rent from the course. Although the golf carts are intended for safe rides around the course, sometimes they are not driven safely or encounter objects and animals along the way that put the driver and others at risk.

When you’ve been injured by or in a golf cart accident that wasn’t your fault, then you could be eligible to file a personal injury claim against the person who caused your injuries. In Louisville, Thomas Law Offices can handle your case and ensure that you get justice for your wrongful injuries and receive full and fair compensation.

How Can Consumers Fight Back Against Forced Arbitration?

Arbitration is an alternative method of resolving disputes. Two parties present their sides of a complaint to an arbitrator or panel of arbitrators. The arbitrator’s job is to weigh the facts and arguments of both sides and make a determination.

While there are instances of voluntary arbitration, forced arbitration arises when a company requires a consumer to submit any dispute to binding arbitration as a condition of buying a product. The consumer has to waive their right to sue, participate in a class-action lawsuit, or file an appeal. With this type of dispute resolution, the decision is binding and the results are not made public.

When consumers are dealing with defective or harmful products, forced arbitration can get in the way of recovery and informing others about the potential dangers. That’s why it’s important for consumers to know how to fight back against forced arbitration.

Person in suit standing

Injuries can occur from all kinds of situations. A personal injury case stems from a serious injury caused by another person. Whether you’ve been in a serious car accident, experienced medical malpractice, or used a product that later turned out to be harmful, you could get injured from the negligence of another person. But you don’t always know you’re injured immediately after an accident. It can sometimes take weeks, months, or even years to realize you’ve been injured or developed a disease from an incident or product.
