Morrow Boating Accident Attorney
Boating is an extremely relaxing recreational activity. While there is no better way to soak up the sun, it’s important to recognize exactly how dangerous boating accidents can be. Because they happen on the water, they involve the additional danger of drowning – on top of the risk of other life-threatening physical damages. If someone else’s negligence leaves you injured in a boating accident, call an experienced Morrow boating accident lawyer today.
The Operator’s Negligence
The person manning the boat you’re on takes on just as much responsibility as any other motorist does (while facing some additional hurdles). Serious boating accidents are often directly attributable to driver negligence, including:
- Impairment – When an operator adopts the party mood that boats tend to evoke, it can lead to dangerous impairment by alcohol and/or drugs and to a serious boating accident.
- Distraction – One of the most important tasks an operator must attend to is carefully observing and reacting to the waterway, which is unpredictable. Distracted operators are dangerous operators, and there are typically plenty of distractions on boats.
- Speed – Being out on a boat is not an invitation to engage in a free for all. A boat’s operator must maneuver his or her boat safely in relation to the conditions at hand – and this includes traveling at a safe speed.
