Boating Accidents

California Boating Accident Lawyer

Injury Attorney in Northern California

California's sunny weather is an absolute paradise for those who love boating, fishing, sailing, swimming and/or any watercraft activities and water sports available. Unfortunately, with so many opportunities to partake in these activities, it's also an environment ripe for accidents and catastrophic injuries, including death. When these unfortunate accidents and injuries are due to the negligence of others, including liable manufacturers and sellers of faulty equipment, victims and their families have the right to seek compensation for damages under the law. If you or someone you love was injured or killed in a boating accident due to the negligence of others, it's vital that you contact an experienced California personal injury attorney right away.

Types and Causes of Boating Accidents

Each year, thousands are injured and/or killed in accidents during general water activities throughout the country, and the Golden State plays a major role in these statistics each year. Injuries can include but are not limited to:

According to recent data from the California Department of Boating and Waterways, boating accidents are typically caused by one or more of the following factors:

  • Operator inattention;
  • Operator inexperience;
  • Excessive speed;
  • Drugs and alcohol use;
  • Overloading and improper loading; and
  • Not wearing safety equipment such as life jackets

Whatever the circumstances of the accident, if negligence was the cause of injuries or wrongful death during a boat accident, personal injury laws protect you the same on the water as they do on land.
