How Do Boating Accidents Happen & Who Is Liable?

Liability is an important element of any personal injury claim, including those involving boating accidents. It is also almost invariably linked with how the accident occurred. Typically, to determine who was liable for the accident, our attorneys evaluate how the accident happened. This allows us to identify which party (if any) acted negligently, recklessly, or unlawfully.

Boating accidents can happen due to a wide variety of factors. Some of the leading causes of boating and personal watercraft accidents include:

  • Operator inexperience/inattention
  • Failure to keep a lookout
  • Intoxication
  • Unsafe weather/water conditions
  • Excessive speed
  • Navigational rule violations
  • Hazards in the water
  • Improper towing
  • Defective vessels/parts
  • Mechanical failures
  • Improper maintenance or repairs

Depending on how the accident occurred, any number of people or parties could be liable, including another boat or personal watercraft operator, a boat rental company, a manufacturer, and more.

Recovering Compensation for Your Damages

Sadly, boating accidents tend to result in catastrophic injuries, including near-drownings, brain injuries, spine injuries, and more. Many of these injuries ultimately prove fatal. Those who survive face a long, uphill battle when it comes to both their physical and financial recovery.

At the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A., we fight for maximum compensation for our clients. We may be able to recover the following damages on your behalf:

  • Medical bills for immediate and ongoing treatment and care
  • Future medical expenses and lost earnings
  • Lost income/wages related to your injuries
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost quality of life
  • Inconvenience and disfigurement

If your loved one died in a boating accident, we may be able to help you recover additional damages—including funeral/burial costs, the value of support and services provided by your loved one, loss of love and companionship, and more—through a wrongful death lawsuit.
