Types of Boat Accident Injuries
Boat accidents do not always take place on the vessel itself. Slips on the dock, swimming platforms, or crashes on the beach can result in broken bones, lacerations, bruises, internal organ injuries, and physical or psychological trauma. Accidents that take place on the boat, such as explosions, crashes, capsizes, and spills can result in burns, cuts, bone and spinal cord injuries, hypothermia, and even drowning or death.
Determining Liability in Boating Accidents
Whether you are injured while sailing recreationally or while delivering transported goods as part of your employment, you may not be liable to pay the damages and medical bills in a boat accident. Often, in recreational and occupational boat accidents, the injuries sustained are a result of malpractice or inappropriate behavior on the part of someone else.
Some potential causes of boating accidents can be:
- Malfunctioning engine or equipment
- Boat operation under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Inappropriate use of vessel
- Failure to maintain proper lookout
- Improper maintenance of propellers, sails, or anchors
- Failure to follow proper sailing and docking procedures
- Unsafe vessel conditions (i.e. lack of slip-resistant surfaces)
