Choose a Boating Accident Lawyer to Represent You

Many people like to spend time on boats, and for this reason, there can be accidents associated with boating events and time spent near boating enthusiasts. Boating accidents, unfortunately, happen throughout Virginia and Kentucky. If you or a loved one have been injured while on a boat, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries. A professional boating accident lawyer can investigate the accident in order to determine the liable party and bring forth a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf. Their job is to represent you while you take the necessary time to heal and recover from your injuries. These accidents can occur when tubing, fishing, water skiing, motorboating, canoeing, kayaking, surfing, paddle boarding, sailing and more.

Causes of Boat Accidents

There are many common causes of boat accidents. They can include excess speed, lack of attention, failure to follow the rules, improper lookout, alcohol and drug use, inadequate training, operator error, boat overcrowding, or collision with docks or other objects. A boating accident lawyer can investigate the accident to determine the cause and get you the reimbursement and recovery that you deserve if someone else is responsible for your injuries or damages. If someone was drunkenly operating a boat, they could be charged with a BUI or boating under the influence, which can be a serious offense.
