Based in Jacksonville, Boating Accident Lawyer Brett Hastings Understands the Nature of Boating Accidents

According to the U.S. Coast Guard, the five most common causes of boating accidents are careless driving, driver not paying attention, no one looking out for other boats and swimmers, inexperienced boat driver, and dangerous behavior by a passenger or skier. These and other causes led to 4,789 U.S. recreational boating accidents in 2008, including 709 deaths, the Coast Guard reports.

Personal injury attorneys with experience in boating injury cases are on the lookout for the causes listed above because they demonstrate negligent behavior and are grounds for a lawsuit. Other accident causes can indicate negligence as well. If you were injured in a boating accident and we can show that negligent or irresponsible actions of another person caused your injury, that person can be forced to pay monetary compensation for:

  • Medical treatment costs
  • Wages you missed out on while recovering
  • Loss of income or quality of life resulting from a permanent or long-lasting injury
  • Pain and suffering you experience
  • Damage to property you own

This is why it’s important to contact a Jacksonville boating accident lawyer as soon as possible after your accident.

Was someone drunk or intoxicated when your boating accident occurred?

Approximately 17% of all boating accidents involve alcohol, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. Intoxication does not reduce a person’s liability-in fact, they are likely to be both liable and negligent. If the person who caused the accident in which you were injured was drinking or under the effects of drugs or alcohol, read our article on Drunk Driving Accidents.
