Boat Accident Attorney

Have you been hurt or lost a family member in a boating accident?

Going out on a boat for a fun-filled weekend or lazy afternoon is a pastime that many Americans favor, but it has its dangers.

Boating accidents can be serious, particularly when drinking is involved. Negligent behavior can lead to painful injuries. Persons at fault can include the boat’s owner, manufacturer, driver or the driver of another boat who instigates a collision.

Causes of accidents include:

  • Distracted Driving – Music, talking and eating are just some of the ways that someone driving a boat can get distracted. Insure that the boat has the driver’s full attention.
  • Reckless Operating – Speeding or daredevil like maneuvers can put everyone at risk.
  • Inexperience – If someone doesn’t have the experience to handle the boat well, the journey can be perilous.
  • Under the Influence – Drugs and alcohol severely impair judgment. Whether going to the lake or the bar a designated person in charge is a great idea.
  • Poor Maintenance or Design – A boat’s condition can be a major factor, one which the operators and passengers can’t control.
  • Failure to Take Safety Precautions – A boat should have all the essential safety equipment and the owner should ensure that those using it know what the safety rules are.  Do the passengers need to wear life jackets? Are small children allowed on board?

Were you in an accident that wasn’t your fault?

Accidents can happen even to the most safety-cautious and experienced people.
