Negligent Boat Operation & Your Rights
Negligence manifests itself in many ways. Simply put, a person commits
negligence when he or she does something careless or reckless, causing
harm to another individual.
In boating accidents, negligence might include:
- Operating a boat under the influence of alcohol
- Speeding or driving recklessly
- Neglecting to pay attention / driving while distracted
- Failing to obey navigation rules and regulations
- Defective boats and components
Some forms of negligence are easy to define, such as boating under the
influence of alcohol or drugs; others are less obvious. Failing to pay
attention, for example, is a common practice that may not always cause
an accident but can lead to severe – even deadly – collisions.
In any case, compensation is never guaranteed - often because these matters
are legally complex and because insurance companies devote resources to
minimizing victim payouts. Our legal team has accumulated a wide breadth
of insight into how injury cases work, the laws at hand, and how insurance
companies defend against boat claims. This insight allows us to make the
difference for our clients.
