Experienced Boating Accident Attorneys Are Here For You
Boating accidents are a common consequence of the boating season in Minnesota and all over the United States. If you’ve been in a boating accident, you need an experienced boating accident lawyer on your side. Contact Cory P. Whalen at SiebenCarey for a free consultation.
Federal law requires the boat operator in a boating accident to submit an accident report to the reporting authority. If the operator is unable to submit the report then the owner must submit the report when a person dies; a person disappears from the vessel under circumstances that indicate death or injury; a person is injured and requires more than just first aid; damage to the vessel or other property usually more than $2,000; and if the boat is destroyed.
Obviously, such a report is important to track and establish regulations and safety standards for educational and investigative purposes. Accident reporting forms can be found on the Coast Guard’s website.
Serious injuries and death can occur in boating accidents. Investigation at an early stage is key to preserving evidence and gathering data.
