Quispamsis Boating Accident Lawyer


Recreational boating is a favourite local pastime for many Quispamsis residents. There is nothing quite like experiencing the beautiful maritime scenery from aboard a boat, either with friends and family members or on a solo voyage. Seasoned enthusiasts often develop their love for recreational boating from a young age, and have a lifetime of experience influencing their choices on the water. Experienced boat drivers know the importance of safety preparation before even leaving dry land, and of best practices for safe operation of the vessel while navigating the waters near Quispamsis.

However, even the safest, most experienced boat operator could be involved in an accident on the water because of the inexperience or negligence of another boat driver. New boat owners and operators tend to make beginner’s mistakes while maneuvering their crafts. They may lack the practical experience to avoid collisions with other boats or stationary objects. Additionally, while they may have attained the proper credentials required to legally operate their boats, many new boat operators race through their training and often do not retain crucial practical information about safe practices on the water.

Furthermore, regardless of their skill level, boat operators can– and frequently do– engage in negligent behaviour while driving their boats. When boat drivers violate the rules governing the safe operation of pleasure crafts, they can put other boater’s physical wellbeing and their very lives at risk.

In the waters near Quispamsis, accidents caused by negligent boat drivers can be fatal. Passengers of any boat involved in collisions on the water could lose their lives by drowning, or as the result of other traumatic injuries. Those fortunate enough to survive traumatic boating accidents often sustain severe injuries, many of which may impact their qualities of life for years or even decades following their accident. Some injuries commonly sustained in boating accidents 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
  • Amputations
  • Phobias
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • And more

By prioritizing their own fun and excitement over someone else’s safety, negligent boat operators can cause the victims of boat accidents years of physical pain and discomfort, psychological trauma, and financial instability. All boat operators in the country are required to comply with national safety regulations mandated by the Canada Shipping Act. By violating marine laws, negligent boat drivers fail to uphold the duty of care they are required by law to provide other boat operators and passengers. Most frequently, accidents resulting from a boat driver’s negligence are caused by impaired driving. If a boat operator operates their craft under the influence of alcohol and/or illicit drugs and a collision occurs as a result, the at-fault party may be considered negligent.

However, impaired boat driving is not the only marine law violation that could cause an injurious collision. Reckless or distracted boat driving, operating the boat without proper credentials, failing to comply with right-of-way rules, and other negligent actions could lead to accidents that cause other people to sustain severe injuries.
