Our client was injured at a golf course in O’Fallon, Missouri after the defendant was driving the golf cart recklessly and texting at the same time. Our client was the passenger in the golf cart, which flipped over and our client was ejected. The client’s right upper arm was pinned underneath the roof of the cart. His upper arm was fractured and required surgery, with placement of a plate and screws. We sent a letter of representation to the driver of the golf cart, who then turned the claim over to his auto insurance carrier. Travelers determined that the auto coverage applied to the defendant’s driving of the golf cart. We made a policy limits demand of $100,000 to Travelers and it agreed to pay the limits, plus an additional $1,000 in med pay. The golf course also paid out its med pay coverage of $10,000. The total settlement was $111,000.
