The Hazards of Boating

Accidents on the water can involve boats, Jet Skis or other types of personal watercraft. These accidents can be caused by issues such as:

  • Collisions with other boats
  • Running aground or hitting a dock or pier
  • Operating the boat under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Boat defects
  • No life jackets or safety equipment on board

Passengers are at risk for injuries and drowning from:

  • Falling overboard
  • Being thrown from the boat and hitting their head
  • Being hit by another boat and suffering a fracture
  • Contact with a propeller

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can occur if victims hit their head or sustain a hard blow to the body that bounces the brain against the skull. Brain damage due to lack of oxygen is often the result of drowning. TBI and brain damage are often permanent. Depending on the severity of the injury, victims may need extensive medical treatment and long-term care.

Broken bones, back and neck injuries, and spinal cord injuries are also possible in a traumatic accident. In the worst boat accidents, wrongful death may be the result. We can seek damages from the negligent party to cover all of your losses from the accident.
