Every year, hundreds of Canadians suffer serious and permanent injuries from accidents on motorboats, sailboats, jet skis, fishing boats, and other types of watercraft. Regardless of whether the boating accident is caused because of drunk boating (DUI), an improperly trained or unlicensed operator, recklessness, or another factor, these mishaps can result in serious injuries ranging from hypothermia, broken bones, torn ligaments, concussion, spinal cord trauma, chronic back conditions or even drowning. In addition to the physical trauma, boating accident victims frequently suffer economic loss in the form of expenses from losing their boat, medical expenses, and lost income. Sadly, boat accident victims often face a diminished quality of life following an accident.
Because boating accident cases often involve both standard motor vehicle law and marine law, legal cases tend to be complicated. This can be made worse by insurance companies who may delay or deny your claim. To make sure that you are justly compensated, it is important to speak with a personal injury lawyer who is experienced handling these specialized areas of law as quickly as possible after being involved in a boating accident.
