Minnesota Boating Accident Attorneys
Our experienced personal injury attorneys can help after a boating accident
Recreational boating has always been a popular leisure time activity in Minnesota, the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Unfortunately, far too often, this pursuit of pleasure can result in grievous bodily harm, enormous property damages, and heartbreaking fatalities because of boating accidents.
When attorneys refer to "boating accidents," they mean any accident in any type of watercraft in which a serious injury resulted from someone else's negligence. Serious injuries can occur in a yacht, jet ski or other boat crashes, or can occur on commercial boating and cruise ship accidents in which no boating collision occurred. In short, if any operator of any watercraft is negligent and causes serious property damage and/or serious injury or death in your family, you have a right to be compensated.
When you are involved in a boating accident, your injuries can be just as severe as in a car accident. Given the vulnerability of the occupants of watercraft, it is no wonder these accidents cause serious injuries such as brain injuries and spinal cord damage.
Most boating accidents occur due to negligence when the driver is careless, reckless, inexperienced, or inattentive. The most common boating accidents are boat-to-boat collisions and a boat colliding with a stationary object. Alcohol is a factor in over one-third of boating accidents.
In most fatal boating accidents, the victims drown-especially those who are not wearing life preservers. Under these circumstances, the family of the deceased may file a wrongful death lawsuit.
