Boating Accidents in Henry County
When you think about spending time on the water, you think about relaxing in the sun – and not about boating accidents. Negligent and inexperienced boat operators – to name a few risk factors – make dangerous boating accidents that much more likely. If you’re injured in a boating accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, the time to consult with an experienced boating accident lawyer in Henry County is now.
The Boat Operator
Every motorist who gets behind the wheel of a vehicle takes on a tremendous responsibility, and the operator behind the wheel of a boat is no different. He or she is responsible for all of the following:
- Boat operators are responsible for keeping a careful eye on the waterway ahead. Waterways are far more unpredictable than the roads we drive on, and boat operators must remain hyper-vigilant to potential dangers in their midst.
- Boat operators are often subject to distractions on their own boats – such as passengers who are engaged in fun-in-the-sun revelry (a boating thing) – but they are responsible for not letting this party atmosphere distract them from the task of maneuvering their crafts safely across the water. Distracted skippers are dangerous skippers.
- Boat operators are responsible for eschewing all forms of driver negligence (in addition to distraction), including exhaustion, impairment, speeding, and aggression.
Boat operators are the first line of defense when it comes to avoiding dangerous boating accidents.
