Morrow Ga Boat Accident Attorney
It is difficult to imagine a better way to while away a day than on a boat, but boat accidents are an entirely different story. Boat accidents have all the dangers of car accidents, but there is a far greater risk of being thrown from the boat, and there is the very real danger of drowning in the process. If someone else’s negligence leaves you injured in a boat accident, now is a good time to make the call to an experienced Morrow boat accident attorney.
The Elements of Your Boat Accident Claim
While boat accidents vary considerably from claim to claim, the basic elements do not change and include:
- The at-fault party has a responsibility to your safety – or owes you a duty of care – to begin with. The skipper of the boat you are on, for example, owes you the duty of care of proceeding safely and following the rules of the water. Those skippers who share the waterway with you owe you the same duty of care.
- The at-fault party breached this duty of care – or failed to live up to his or her responsibility to your safety. This can mean being distracted, impaired, drowsy, aggressive, or otherwise negligent behind the wheel of the boat. Just like on land, excess speed is a common safety concern on the water.
- The at-fault party’s negligence led to an injury-causing boat accident.
- You suffered losses such as medical expenses, lost earnings, or pain and suffering (or any combination of these) as a result of the at-fault skipper’s negligence.
