Boating used to be a niche recreational activity, enjoyed by a few boat owners and summer tourists. However, more people are boating year-round. With increased popularity comes an increased probability of an accident. Boating accidents are often a result of:

  1. Drunk drivers – Boating is unlike most driving because it is a leisurely activity. Some boaters feel they can get away with drinking while operating the boat, especially when law enforcement is not as present as it is on the road.
  2. Inexperienced boaters – Many boaters are still learning. While not all novices are careless, they are more at risk for making mistakes that lead to accidents.
  3. Rentals that are poorly maintained – The rental business has a responsibility to ensure their boats are safe. The most careful operator cannot avoid an accident with a poorly maintained boat.

These issues are unfamiliar for many victims of boating accidents. Getting an experienced boating accident lawyer can really help. Sam & Ash know what it takes to make your boating accident claim a success.
