A boating accident can certainly turn a sunny day on the water dark. Boating accident laws are regulated under a federal, state and local level, and include navigational regulations, lifejacket rules as well as boating under the influence (B.U.I.). Trips on the boat for recreation are different than a car ride in that they typically are not something you do everyday — unexpected weather patterns, unfamiliar waterways, an engine breaking down and certainly a crash be very scary, causing injuries, drowning and damaged property.
There are strict liabilities with boating accidents that must be taken seriously especially right after the incident. Call me today if you have been in boating accident to discuss what needs to happen next to make sure you are compensated fairly.
