Lawsuits Against Negligent Boat Operators

Are you suffering from a boating injury? Is your injury caused by a reckless boat operator? Whether your boating accident was caused by a negligent boater or even a drunken boat operator, innocent accident victims have been hurt. If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident, you have a right to fight for compensation.

If you experienced the unfortunate loss of a loved one in a reckless boating accident, you also have the right to sue for wrongful death.

When a negligent boat operator hurts innocent victims, the victims pain does not go in vain. In fact, as difficult as it is to believe, when a negligent boat operator causes an injury or even the death of victim, it can actually benefit the community as a whole. When someone is penalized and/or even jailed, due to reckless boating, it sends out a warning message to the public. Accident consequences can help prevent future boating accidents. When accident penalties are harsh, this can help deter poor decision-making, like operating a boat while under the influence of alcohol and even drugs.

Many people who operate motor boats and other types of watercraft underestimate the power of an engine. Some boat operators compare boat riding to driving a car. They assume that boating is less harmful than getting behind a vehicle because there is a lot less traffic to deal with and you’re surrounded by a body of water. Most people fail to realize that drinking while boating is just as dangerous as drinking and driving a motor vehicle. Boating While Intoxicated (BWI) is a serious offense in New Hampshire, which could lead to jail time.

If you or your loved one have been injured in a boating accident, due to the fault of a negligent boater, you may be eligible to receive compensation for damages and medical expenses. If you were severely hurt, you may be entitled to receive money to cover income loss if you are unable to work due to the severity of your injuries.
