Boating Accidents

Personal injury lawyers generally handle far less boating accidents than car accidents. While there are distinct differences between the two, personal injury lawyers can tell you that they actually have some strong similarities.

For example, they share some of the same causes namely, drunk driving, reckless driving and impacts with other vehicles. Other boating accident causes include fire, falls overboard, sinking and even disappearance. Consult your personal injury attorney for cases involving water or jet skis as those may require special legal attention.

Another strong similarity personal injury lawyers have found is that liability often rests with the vehicle’s owner. Again, consult your personal injury lawyer to identify the liable parties in your case as exceptions to this rule can arise. Laws also differ from state to state, but your personal injury lawyer should be able to help you with that as well.

What caused the accident is a primary factor in helping your personal injury lawyer determine liability. Your personal injury lawyer will also consider the boat’s equipment and whether the boat was being operated in compliance with state law. If you’ve been in a boating accident, be sure to report it and seek proper medical attention. Then contact your personal injury lawyer immediately. Let your personal injury lawyer deal with the legal issues, while you focus on your recovery.
