Any act of recklessness while on a boat can put everyone on or near the vessel at risk. As such, it’s vital that negligent boat operators are held accountable when their actions result in harm to others.
Any type of accident is a traumatic experience for those involved. In the wake of a boating accident, you need peace of mind and representation that cares about you. If you’ve been involved in a boating accident, you are not alone. In fact, boating accidents occur far more frequently than most people realize. In 2017, the Coast Guard reported 658 deaths and 2,629 injuries stemming from more than 4,000 boating accidents. In addition to the human toll, more than $46 million dollars in property damage was done as a result of boating accidents. You should also know that:
It’s important for anyone planning on going out on the water to know the risks involved. This can help mitigate risk and prevent accidents before they happen. It’s even more important to know the facts if you’ve been involved in a serious boating accident. As the data shows, accidents can happen to people at any time of day with any experience level. If you have been involved in a boating accident, you should contact a lawyer immediately to ensure that your rights are protected.
Boating accidents often lead to severe and life-changing injuries. Aside from bodily damage caused by impact upon collision, you are at risk of drowning if another boater has hit you. When victims of boating accidents go into the water, consciousness may be lost, a traumatic brain injury may occur due to lack of oxygen, and long-lasting mental and emotional changes may occur.
The emotional and psychological impact could also appear in the form of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). As a result of PTSD, your relationships and dynamics with family and friends could be affected for the rest of your life. When added to the physical injuries that one can suffer in a boating accident, such as traumatic brain injuries, neck and spine injuries, lost limbs or paralysis, scarring and disfigurement, and others, it can be difficult to ever put the accident behind you.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a boating accident, do not let the person who acted recklessly or negligently escape liability. If a boater hit you and you sustained injuries, you have rights. That boater should be held responsible for the impact they have had on you, your life, your family, your friends, and your work. Seeking the help of an attorney to assess the circumstances surrounding the accident, the injuries you have sustained, and the projection of future treatment is critical to ensuring that you are fully compensated. Call one of the experienced boating attorneys at Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller, Overbeck & Baxter P.A. today to ensure that your rights and interests are protected and that you are awarded the compensation you are legally entitled to receive.
