What should I do after a boat accident?
The Department of Boating and Waterways has reported that the chief cause
of boating accidents is operator inattention, followed by operator inexperience
and excessive speed. Thus, negligence is responsible for the majority
of such accidents. At- fault operators can be held accountable for paying
damages, especially when injuries occur. So what should you do if you
have been involved in an accident?
Much like a
car accident, you should do the following after boat accident:
- Take photos of the damaged boat and any injuries you may have sustained
- Exchange information with the other boat driver
- Record the contact information from anyone who may have witnessed the crash
- Take notes of the specific details of how and where the crash occurred
- Have an official report made up that contains your side of the story
- Seek immediate medical attention for your injuries
In some cases, a boat accident may be caused by a product defect, rather
than operator error. If this is what caused your accident, the boat manufacturer
may be held liable for damages. No matter what the cause of your accident,
be sure to call on our firm for counsel.
