Boating Accidents

Our Experienced Boating Accident Lawyer Will Fight For You

When you're sharing the water with negligent or irresponsible parties, both commercial and private boats can present any number of injury risks. Accidents can occur in a variety of situations ranging from cruise line vessels to small boats in local rivers and lakes.

Safe boating has been clearly outlined by regulations from various authorities. In many personal injury cases, the conduct of a boat operator or passenger violates these guidelines. When you're injured as a result of someone else's irresponsibility, he or she can be held accountable for your losses and compensation for your injury.

What To Do In The Event of a Boating Accident

Just as with hit and run accidents, it is illegal to fail to remain on the accident scene to render aid, or to fail to promptly report the boating accident to the appropriate regulatory agency.

In a boat-to-boat collision, or when a fixed object or stationery vessel is struck, immediately contact the appropriate regulatory agency (may vary from state to state; keep appropriate information onboard your vessel). They will inform you of your obligation to file a report.
