When Can I File a Personal Injury Case for a Boating Accident?
If you were injured in a boating accident due to someone else's negligence, you're probably eligible to file a personal injury case against the person who injured you.
Some common causes of boating accidents due to negligence include:
- An inexperienced boat captain may underestimate their speed, colliding with another boat or a person in the water.
- A boat captain may get distracted and fail to notice other boats or people in the water, causing them bodily harm.
- A boat driver or individuals responsible for operating a boat may get distracted due to alcohol use. It's relatively common for people to drink while on the water, which can result in accidents similar to drunk driving incidents.
- Inclement weather may cause a boat captain to lose control of their ship, resulting in injuries to other individuals on the water.
If you are involved in a boating accident, you should immediately contact a personal injury lawyer located in PA, like our team here at Scaringi Law. Then, work with your lawyer to collect and document as much evidence as you can about the accident.
The more evidence you have to prove that the boat operator acted negligently, the easier it will be to pursue a favorable judgment in your boating accident case.
You should also document any expenses incurred due to the accident, such as lost professional wages and medical costs. You may be able to fully recoup these expenses during your case, or even recoup them and get additional payment from the individual responsible for the accident.
