Waldorf Boating Accident Attorneys
Millions Recovered for Our Clients
Boating accidents often result in catastrophic or even fatal injuries. Due to the fact that many boating accidents take place on the water, these incidents often lead to fatal drownings. And, sadly, the vast majority of boating accidents could have—and should have—been prevented with proper care and attention.
If you were injured or lost a loved one in a boating accident, the Law Office of James E. Farmer, LLC can help. We know that nothing can undo the suffering you have been through, but if your accident was the result of someone else’s negligence, you shouldn’t have to simply deal with the resulting medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering on your own. Our Waldorf boating accident lawyers can help you take action against the liable party and seek fair compensation for your damages.
Common Causes of Boating Accidents
As stated above, boating accidents are often preventable, meaning they are caused by someone’s careless, reckless, negligent, or wrongful actions. When this is the case, the at-fault party can be held legally liable for damages.
Some of the most common causes of boating accidents include:
- Inexperienced boat operators
- Operating a watercraft while intoxicated
- Failure to follow navigational rules
- Distracted boat operators/operator inattention
- Failure to keep a proper lookout
- Hazards in the water
- Poor weather/water conditions
- Excessive speed
- Defective parts
- Machinery failure
Because boating is often a recreational activity, many people do not treat it with the same level of care as operating another type of motor vehicle, such as a car or motorcycle. However, boating can be just as dangerous as driving. Operating a boat or personal watercraft while intoxicated, speeding, or failing to pay attention while out on the water is never acceptable—and the consequences can be severe.
Fighting to Hold the Negligent Party Accountable
If you were hit by a careless boater or were otherwise involved in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, our Waldorf boating accident lawyers are ready to help.
