Bathurst Boating Accident Lawyer

Both residents of Bathurst and tourists of the region have access to some of the most breathtaking Maritime scenery. The nearby rivers, bays, and other waterways can provide boat operators with opportunities to fish, explore, and unwind in a tranquil setting.

Unfortunately, the negligence of other boat operators can turn even the most peaceful recreational boat trip into a disastrous calamity. When boat operators prioritize their own carefree experience over the safety of others, fatal boating accidents can occur. Those lucky enough to survive a traumatic collision with another vessel often sustain severe injuries.

Boating accident victims who become trapped underwater for a prolonged period of time often develop anoxic brain injuries. Similar to the effect of severe traumatic brain injuries, anoxic brain injuries have the potential to severely impact boating accident victims physically, cognitively, behaviourally, and psychologically. As a result, injured boating accident victims who have sustained anoxic brain injuries may struggle maintaining their jobs, their social relationships, and their independence. Symptoms of severe anoxic brain injuries can include:

  • Anomia: linguistic difficulties, including inability to find the right word, confusing similar sounding words, failure to understand common words, etc.
  • Ataxia: lack of coordination
  • Apraxia: inability to perform familiar physical tasks (i.e. brushing teeth, using utensils, etc.)
  • Quadriparesis: weakness of arms and legs
  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty processing visual information
  • Mood swings
  • Difficulty reasoning, making decisions, synthesizing information
  • And more

A reckless, inebriated, or otherwise negligent boat driver could profoundly impact the lives of boating accident victims and their families. The people that operate a boat anywhere in the country have a responsibility to do so with a reasonable degree of caution, so as to ensure the safety of other boat drivers and occupants. Failure to uphold their legally required duty of care by violating any number of marine laws often constitutes negligence. Some examples of boat driver negligence that frequently result in injury-causing accidents include:

  • Operating the boat under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Distracted driving
  • Reckless boat operation
  • Excessive speeding
  • Operating the boat without proper credentials
  • Failing to comply with right-of-way rules
  • And more
