Hurt in a Boating incident? Our Attorneys Will Get You the Compensation You Deserve
Lakes, rivers and waterways draw crowds for recreation. While many enjoy boating in beautiful reservoirs, some boaters make the mistake of mixing alcohol and operating their vessel. Drinking and boating, also known as Boating Under the Influence, can quickly lead to serious injuries or death.
Laws prohibit anyone from operating any boat, sailboat, personal watercraft, water skis, sailboard or similar device while intoxicated. It is also unlawful for the owner of a boat or personal watercraft to allow anyone else to operate their boat or Personal Water Craft while that person is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
We deliver winning results in bringing justice to those suffering from bad acts of boaters who take risks while navigating waterways. Unless a case is immediately investigated, it’s easy for evidence to get lost or washed away in incidents that occur in the water. Proper documentation of the incident is crucial, just as it is in a roadway accident.
Boating accidents can involve any of the following:
- Reckless acts
- Boating too fast
- Distracted driving

It is the boat operator’s responsibility to follow the laws and ensure their passengers, other boaters and swimmers are unharmed.
