Common Types of Boating Accidents
Some boat accidents are caused by operator errors, while others might be the result of inclement weather, mechanical failures or unforeseen obstacles, like rocks or hazards sitting beneath the water’s surface. Whatever the cause, boating accidents can result in major damage and may seriously injure or even take the lives of drivers, passengers, as well as other nearby boaters and swimmers.
Some of the common types of Missouri boating accidents include:
- Boat traffic accidents and collisions
- Accidents caused by boat operator negligence
- Mechanical boat defects
- Jet ski accidents
- Ferry accidents
- Tour boat accidents
- Drowning incidents
Seek Justice and Maximum Compensation
Boating incidents can be extremely damaging and can result in serious head injuries, spinal damage, broken bones, burns, puncture wounds, or worse. In many cases, victims may drown as the result of a severe boating crash, or capsizing. If you or someone you love was involved in a boat accident, it is important to find out everyone who was liable and responsible for the tragedy.
Our firm can work with you to determine whether the boat operator was to blame, or if the boating company was negligent. Once we have determined liability, our legal team can help you seek maximum compensation for your injuries, including medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. If you lost a loved one in a boat accident due to someone else’s carelessness, we can help you with a wrongful death claim.
