GALVESTON – A Jefferson County man has pursued legal action regarding an accident with a go kart last year, recent Galveston County District Court records show.

In a lawsuit filed Mar. 13 in the Galveston County 56th District Court, Christopher Dollins asserts that his minor daughter sustained injuries while riding a go kart with him at the Galveston Go Kart and Fun Center on Mar. 15, 2015.

The steering wheel on the go kart in which Dollins and the girl were in became loose, the suit says.

Dollins adds that the supposed malfunction made it difficult to turn the vehicle, stating it then came into contact with a portion of the defendant’s protective railing.

“The portion of the railing at which the contact occurred constituted a dangerous condition, as it had a metal portion extruding out, with said portion being bare and unprotected by rubber or anything else,” the original petition says. “When this go kart came into contact with this dangerous protective railing, CGD was injured when her right hand and arm were struck and cut by this bare metal extruding from the railing.”

Consequently, the elder Dollins seeks unspecified monetary damages.

His attorneys are P. Dean Brinkley of the law firm Templeton & Brinkley in Houston and Douglas P. Greer of the Law Office of Douglas P. Greer in Beaumont.
