Boat Accident Claims in North Carolina
Boat accident claims can involve just about type of boat or personal watercraft,
- Speed boats
- Cabin cruisers
- Jet Ski
Like motor vehicle accidents, boating accidents can be caused by the inattention and negligence of the person operating and steering the boat. Boat accidents can involve something other than a collision with another boat—they can be caused by mechanical failures or defective boat parts. If you have reason to believe your boat accident injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, you have a right to pursue compensation for your injuries.
When Negligence Leads to a Boat Accident
When a boat accident is caused by someone else’s carelessness, then you may have a negligence claim.
Common causes of negligence-related boat accidents include:
- Boating under the influence of drugs or alcohol (BUI)
- Reckless boating
- Inexperienced boaters
- Violation of state or maritime boating laws
- Defective boat part or boat design
