Who Is Liable in a Boating Accident?

Time we spend with friends and family on the water is to be cherished. Although boating is an enjoyable pastime, it is not without risks. Especially on crowded holiday weekends or when alcohol is involved, the waterways can become dangerous even for leisurely cruisers. 

Because of the risks involved in boating, being involved in an accident can often come with serious consequences. When the careless conduct on the water of another boater causes you injury or other losses, however, you could be able to recover damages. Read on to learn about who is liable in a boating accident. 

Investigating Liability in a Boating Accident

In the wake of a boating accident, many accident victims choose to move swiftly in order to increase their chances of receiving economic damages from the liable party. Success in your case depends on your ability to demonstrate the elements of a standard personal injury case

For starters, you will have to investigate the facts of the accident in order to demonstrate that the liable party owed you a duty of care and violated it by acting carelessly or negligently. Finally, you will also demonstrate that the accident led to real injuries and losses, which can often be more complicated than it seems. 

Some evidence that can be used to establish the fault of the liable party includes witness statements, police reports, and expert testimony. Medical records can also be used to help you get a clear understanding of the value of your potential damages.
