Truro Boating Accident Lawyer

The lakes and waterways near Truro offer some of the most beautiful scenic views in the country. Recreational boat operators in the region often take to the water to relax, unwind, and enjoy the picturesque scenery. However, when other boat drivers behave negligently, in an instant, relaxing boat expeditions can turn into disastrous, life-changing, traumatic situations.

No matter how safety-conscious, attentive, and prepared the occupants of a boat may be, they cannot control the behaviours of another boat driver. When boat operators violate marine laws, they put the lives of others at risk.

In accordance with national marine laws, anyone operating a motorized boat has a responsibility to the people around them. All boat drivers owe a duty of care to others. That means they must take reasonable precautions and drive their boats in accordance with the rules governing pleasure crafts. By doing so, they reduce the risk of injurious or fatal accidents with other boats.

If a boat driver fails to fulfill their duty of care by engaging in unsafe, unlawful, or otherwise wrongful behaviour, they may be considered negligent if their actions result in an accident. Negligent boat operators may be required to financially compensate the injured victims of accidents caused by their wrongful conduct.

Examples of negligent behaviour that often causes injurious or fatal boating accidents in the region include:

  • Operating the boat under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
  • Distracted boating
  • Inexperience/ operating the boat without proper certification
  • Speeding
  • Failing to adhere to right-of-way rules
  • And more

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
