Boating accidents may involve any type of wakeboarding, waterskiing, watercraft, other recreational boats, fishing boats, or even large commercial ships. The swift rise in popularity of personal watercraft and boating days has made boating accidents an unfortunate reality.
These incidents occur when a boat owner, driver, or operator is not acting with the care and attention that they should when controlling a boat that weighs a few thousand pounds. Their lack of care can cause serious injury or death. This lack of attention, however brief, has the potential to ruin peoples lives.
Anytime there is a large amount of speed and weight being moved around, people have the ability to get injured or killed. Laws have been put in place to try to minimize the types of bad decisions and poor judgment that ends up seriously injuring or killing fellow community members. Yet when it does happen, the law needs to act.
These types of injuries include the following different types of boats:
- Jet Ski
- Personal Watercraft Or PWC
- Wakeboard boat
- Fishing Boat
- Commerical Boat
- Charter Boat
- Private Boat
If you are involved in any type of boating accident or collision, you should know your rights. The lawyers at the Ernst Law Group have been practicing law with boat accidents for more than 35 years.
