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.
