School’s Auto Liability Policy Doesn’t Cover Golf Cart Mishap, Texas High Court Rules

The Texas Supreme Court affirmed an appellate court’s ruling that a mutual insurance fund is not required to defend a school district from a personal injury claim made after a girl was allegedly injured in a mishap involving a golf cart. Lorena Flores had sued the Pharr–San Juan–Alamo Independent School District, alleging that her daughter was thrown from a golf cart being recklessly driven by a school employee and severely injured. The high court ruled that the golf cart did not meet the definition of a vehicle designed for travel on public roads as defined by the school’s auto policy issued by the Texas Political Subdivisions Property/Casualty Joint Self Insurance Fund and thus it had no duty to indemnify the district for liability from the accident nor defend it from the lawsuit.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
