Boating Accident Lawyers

There’s nothing like escaping the heat and enjoying a day on the water boating. Unfortunately, one thing that can’t be escaped is boating accidents. Most people may not think about the possibility of getting into an accident while on the water in their boat, but boating accidents are more common than you think and can cause severe injuries and significant property damages.

Boating can be an enjoyable way to spend a hot summer day, but unfortunately, not everyone is a responsible boater. Irresponsible boaters put everyone on the water at risk. Inexperienced or drunk boat operators can cause serious accidents and injuries.

If you operate a boat, it’s important that you understand your rights, as well as the boating regulations and legal penalties if you are ever involved in a boating accident. Many of the same causes for automobile accidents apply to boating accidents as well.

Common causes for boating accidents can include:

  • Speeding
  • Operator inexperience
  • Distracted driving
  • Not obeying posted boating signs and signals
  • Operating Under the Influence (OUI)

If you or a loved one has been involved in a boating accident and sustained injuries, you may be entitled to compensation, but you should contact an experienced boat accident attorney as soon as possible. Insurance companies will try to pay as little as possible, so proving fault and liability can be an uphill battle that will require an experienced attorney who is well-versed in boating laws and insurance regulations.
