Boating Accident Lawyers

Boat Accident Lawyers in Phoenix

Most boating accidents due to:

 

    Boating while under the influence of alcohol

    Excessive speed

    Machinery failure

    No proper lookout

    Operator inattention

    Carelessness

 

The results from these accidents can be a variety of injuries, drowning or wrongful death.

 

For children, drowning is the leading cause of death while boating.

 

Overall, two-thirds of boating accident victims drowned, and of those, 90 percent did not wear a life jacket.

 

Federal law (33 CFR Part 173; Subpart C-Casualty and Accident Reporting) requires that victims of boating accidents file a report with the nearest state boating authority. Boating accidents should be reported within 48 hours in the event that:

 

    A death occurs within 24 hours of the accident

    An injury results that requires medical treatment beyond first aid

    A person disappears from a vessel under circumstances that point to death or injury

    Damage to vessel results in more than $2000.00 worth of damage or in a total loss.
