Contact with other boats, obstacles, swimmers, water skiers or jet skis are the most common causes of maritime accidents and injuries. There are many factors that can lead to a boating accident. Bad weather can give way to unsafe boating conditions. Water depth and distance to shore should also be kept in mind. A boating accident in adverse weather can easily lead to the boat capsizing and sinking. High winds and waves are often the culprits. This can lead to vast injuries or result in death.

Two boats in a crashIt is a general rule of law that the owner of a boat and its driver must show the utmost level of caution. This is to prevent injuries that could happen to swimmers, riders in the boat, or anyone else who may be in the local area. Many boating accidents could be curtailed had the driver not been negligent. The most common are driver inexperience, driver error, DWI, bad weather, and equipment failure. Loved ones of boating accident victims who have lost their lives can be faced with mounting medical bills and burial costs. We are here to help you, you don’t need to go through it alone.

Keep in mind, if you get injured in a boating accident, you must be able to prove that your injury was a result from another party’s neglect. This must be done in order to be able to recoup damages from that person. Just because you were hurt, does not equate neglect. As a personal injury lawyer, I can help dissect the merits of your case and show you the options you have.
