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
His attorneys are P. Dean Brinkley of the law firm Templeton

Greer in Beaumont.
