Shediac Boating Accident Lawyer

Across the country, the people who operate motor boats with more than 10 horsepower are required to carry a license and comply with national marine laws. If a boat driver violates the rules governing the safe operation of pleasure crafts, their wrongful behaviour could cause seriously harmful boating accidents.

In the waters near Shediac, boating accidents are frequently the result of a boat operator’s negligence. In accordance with national marine laws, boat drivers are obligated to provide a duty of care to others who may be impacted by their wrongful conduct behind the helm. When a boat operator’s failure to uphold this duty of care results in injury-causing accidents, they may be considered negligent. If so, they may be liable for the damages incurred by the accident victims injured by their negligent behaviour.

Common examples of boat driver negligence that often leads to injury-causing 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 can cause their passengers and the occupants of other vessels to lose their lives. The force of a collision with another boat or a stationary object could send passengers overboard, where they could lose their lives by drowning. Boating accidents could also cause accident victims to sustain numerous injuries, including:

  • 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

The injuries sustained by the survivors of traumatic boat accidents could have profound, life-changing impacts on accident victims’ physical health, psychological well-being, and financial security. Because of another person’s complete disregard for the safety of others, injured accident victims could be forced to live with the consequences of their accident for the rest of their lives.
