Boating Accident Attorney

Boating Accident AttorneyBoat owners and operators are required by law to exercise the highest degree of care to insure the safety of their passengers, other vessels or boats and their passengers, and people in the water. California laws prohibit boat operators from operating a boat or vessel while intoxicated. If an operator injures another party while operating a boat or vessel while intoxicated, or by violating a navigational rule or regulation, failing to properly check or maintain the equipment and safety equipment, the boat operator and/or the owner may be held responsible for any damages caused by their conduct. These laws apply to all types of watercraft such as ferries, jet skis, personal watercraft, as well as all privately owned boats or vessels.

Boating accidents can cause serious injury or death since many victims are severely injured and then ejected into the water where they are unable to swim due to their injuries or the lack of consciousness. Victims frequently drown or have serious brain injuries where efforts to rescue them were delayed or untimely. Please contact Rocky K. Copley for a free initial consultation today.
