Boating Accidents

There is nothing like being able to make your way out onto the open water to enjoy the amazing breeze and the beautiful water. Every year, people everywhere hook up their boats, and zoom to the nearest waterway for a day of fishing, swimming, water-skiing, or just riding. Louisiana and our coast are a special places for hunters and fishermen, but, with so many places to boat, people can be injured. Experience has taught us that when you mix powerful machinery and human operators on the water, things can go wrong very quickly. One mistake made in a flash can have grave consequences. Injuries suffered during boating accidents are usually quite severe and many times life-threatening. Additionally, there are many laws applicable to boating and boating accidents. So it is no wonder that most people risk sinking their own case when trying to make claims without the assistance of a skilled attorney.

The US Coast Guard has recognized that most boating accidents are caused by events that were partly or entirely within the control of the boat’s operator. If boat operators act responsibly, most boating accidents can be avoided. The most common causes of boating accidents are operator inattention, improper lookout, operator inexperience, excessive speed, alcohol use, machinery failure, navigational rule violations, hazardous waters, weather, and the force of waves/wake.

Common questions you may need to ask are:

  • What are the different laws involved in my boating accident?
  • How do I make a claim with my insurance company?
  • What do I do if drugs or alcohol were involved and how will that impact my claim?
  • How do I go about recovering from my injuries?
  • What laws impact the value of my claim?

You may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. It is essential that you have The Law Offices of Tony Morrow on your side to cover all the bases.
