New Glasgow Boating Accident Lawyer

In the rivers and waterways near New Glasgow, negligent boat drivers can cause serious accidents. Even if a boat collides with another vessel or stationary object at a low speed, occupants of either craft can sustain severe, life-altering injuries.

Depending on the force of impact and the severity of the injuries sustained in the collision, survivors of boat accidents could feel the adverse effects of their newly acquired medical conditions for years following their accident. All because of another boat operator’s negligence, their physical health, emotional well-being, and financial security could be disrupted by the injuries they have sustained. Injuries sustained in boating accidents often have long-lasting or permanent repercussions. These injuries frequently 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
  • Anoxic brain injuries
  • And more

Injured boating accident victims could experience more than just physical pain and discomfort. During the long, isolating recovery periods often associated with severe injuries, injured accident survivors frequently develop additional disabling conditions in the form of serious mental health issues. These may include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Insomnia
  • And more

Additionally, boating accident survivors who have sustained compensable injuries may incur financial losses related to their recovery. This may be especially true of injured accident victims whose newly acquired medical conditions make it impossible for them to continue performing the duties of their job. If this happens, injured boating accident survivors may experience financial distress.

Throughout the country, all boat operators are required to pilot their pleasure crafts with a reasonable degree of caution at all times. If a boat driver violates national marine laws and an accident ensues as a result of their wrongful conduct, the at-fault boat operator may be considered negligent. Common examples of negligence that often result in 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

Negligent boat drivers may be liable for compensating the people who sustained injuries as a direct result of their wrongful behaviour. If you were injured in a boating accident caused by another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
