Go Kart injury lawyers serving Go Kart accident victims and their families in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia
Every year, an estimated 15,000 Go Kart related injuries take place. Approximately two-thirds of those injured are children under 15 years old. Victims of Go Kart injuries may be hospitalized with concussions, hematomas, hemorrhaging, broken bones, lacerations, and other severe injuries. Tragically, some Go Kart injury victims have had their hair caught in the vehicle’s exposed engine or chain drive, resulting hair and flesh being ripped from the scalp.
Go Kart injuries can occur for many reasons. They may include factors such as a lack of supervision of the driver, collisions with objects, being hit by another vehicle, exposed engines or chain drive, or an improperly designed or manufactured Go Kart.
Drivers, passengers, and other victims who sustain severe Go Kart injuries may not be at fault for their own injuries. If you or a loved one were severely hurt in a Go Kart related accident, you may be entitled to substantial compensation.

Go Kart race track owners and operators may also be held liable for Go Kart injuries on their premises. Property owners have a legal responsibility to keep their patrons reasonably safe while on the grounds.
