Each year, hundreds of Canadians incur serious and permanent injuries resulting from boating accidents on motorboats, sailboats, jet skis, fishing boat and other types of watercraft. Regardless of whether the accident is caused because of drunk boating, an improperly trained or unlicensed operator, recklessness, or other factors, these mishaps can all result in hypothermia, broken bones, head and spinal cord injuries, chronic back conditions or drowning. In addition to the physical trauma, boating accident victims frequently suffer economic loss in the form of expenses and lost wages. Sadly and too often, they face a diminished quality of life for them and their family.
Because boating accidents can take into account both standard motor vehicle and marine law, legal cases tend to be complicated.
