Campbellton Boating Accident Lawyer

When the wrongful conduct of negligent boat drivers causes accidents on the water, unsuspecting boat occupants could be seriously injured. As the result of collisions with other vessels or stationary objects, boat drivers and passengers could sustain a host of injuries, ranging in severity from moderate to catastrophic. Examples of injuries commonly sustained in boating accidents include:

  • Anoxic brain injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Concussions
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Whiplash and other soft-tissue injuries
  • Strains and sprains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Facial and dental injuries
  • Traumatic amputations
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • And more

Depending on the severity of the injuries they have sustained, injured boating accident survivors could feel the effects of their accident for years to come, and even for the rest of their lives. Boating accident injuries are often permanent in nature, and can adversely impact an injured victim’s overall quality of life. Injured accident victims may be forced to endure long periods of hospitalization, drastic lifestyle adjustments, emotional and psychological distress, and financial instability, all because of another person’s failure to operate their vessel in a safe and considerate manner.

The operation of motor boats in coastal waters, lakes, rivers, and all other waterways throughout the country is governed by national marine laws. Boat operators are required by law to exercise caution while driving their pleasure crafts, and to exercise a reasonable degree of caution. By doing so, they may be able to prevent injurious collisions that could endanger the lives and physical safety of others. If a boat’s operator violates any number of these laws and an injury-causing accident ensues, they might be considered negligent, and therefore, responsible for financially compensating the victims of boating accidents injured because of their wrongful conduct.

Common examples of boat driver negligence that could be responsible for causing serious boating 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
