Chéticamp Boating Accident Lawyer

Fishing is more than an industry in Chéticamp; it is a way of life. With its sweeping views of the maritime coastline, Chéticamp is home to many people who feel at home on the water. Each year, especially in the summer months, visitors to the region and local boating enthusiasts take to the water for a recreational excursion, and to experience the beauty of the local scenery from aboard a boat.

Operating a boat with more than 10 horsepower requires a pleasure craft license. The experienced boat drivers who have obtained the proper license should know how to safely operate their pleasure crafts and be familiar with the rules of safe boating as legislated by national marine laws. Unfortunately, not all boat drivers choose to abide by the rules that have been established nationwide. When boat drivers operate their vessels in a negligent manner, violating the rules that govern the safe operation of pleasure crafts, they put the lives of others at risk.

Collisions on the water with either stationary objects or other boats can cause the passengers of a fast-moving vessel to sustain serious injuries. The injuries sustained in traumatic boating accidents caused by another boat driver’s negligence have the potential to impact an accident survivor’s life physically, emotionally, and financially for years following their collision. These injuries often include:

  • Concussions
  • Anoxic brain injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Sprains, strains and musculoskeletal injuries
  • 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

If the operator of a pleasure craft violates marine laws and a boating accident ensues as a result, they may be considered negligent. Therefore, they may be required to provide injured victims of the boating accident they caused with financial compensation.

A boat operator may be considered negligent if their wrongful actions at the helm led to an injury-causing accident. In the waters near Chéticamp, boating accidents are often the result of:

  • Inebriated boating
  • Distracted driving
  • Reckless endangerment
  • Excessive speeding
  • Operating the boat without proper credentials
  • Failing to comply with right-of-way rules
  • And more
