Moncton Boating Accident Lawyer


The province is home to thousands of lakes and waterways, and a breathtaking coastline that’s best enjoyed aboard a boat. During the summer months, many Moncton residents take to the water for recreational boating excursions to enjoy the beautiful scenery the province has to offer.

Seasoned boaters know the importance of taking safety precautions before leaving dry land. But even the most cautious boat operator is susceptible to boating accidents caused by another person’s negligence.

Boating accidents near Moncton can result in wrongful deaths. High-speed collisions with other boats or stationary objects can cause boat operators and passengers to sustain serious, sometimes catastrophic injuries. Some injuries that are often sustained in boating collisions include:

  • Concussions
  • 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

Depending on the speed of collision and force of impact, boating accident victims can be thrown overboard as the result of another party’s negligence. If an accident victim loses consciousness or becomes trapped underwater, they may drown as a result of the collision. Even if they survive the crash, boating accident victims who have been trapped underwater for a substantial length of time may develop an anoxic brain injury due to lack of oxygen.

People who have acquired anoxic brain injuries as the result of boating accidents may experience physical, cognitive, and behavioural difficulties that can impact the rest of their lives. They may develop permanent brain damage that diminishes their quality of life, all because of someone’s negligence behind their boat’s wheel.

Negligence is one of the most common causes of boating accidents. Negligence refers to a number of actions or inactions whereby a boat’s operator fails to reasonably ensure the safety of other boaters around them. Common examples of negligent behaviour on the water that could cause boating accidents include:

  • Operating the boat under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Excessive speeding
  • Distracted boating
  • Failure to adhere to right-of-way rules
  • And more
