Common Boat Accident Cases
Though boating feels very different from driving a car, many of the same behaviors that lead to car accidents can also lead to boat accidents. Because they occur on the open water, and in many instances on the ocean, boating accidents are incredibly dangerous and in many cases lethal. Some of the boat accident causes we see often include:
- Ignoring boating laws
- Boating under the influence
- Distracted boating
- Maneuvering a boat in a dangerous area
- Poor maneuvering of a boat
- Faulty parts or a lack of boat maintenance
- Too many passengers on the boat
- An overloaded or poorly loaded boat
When someone’s carelessness results in your injuries, you can hold them financially accountable for your resulting damages, including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If your accident leads to permanent disability or inability to work, you can recover compensation for that as well.
