Flagstaff Boating Injury Attorney
Fighting for Your Right to Fair & Just Compensation in Prescott & Sedona
Have you or someone you love been injured in a boating accident? If the injuries were caused by the negligence of a third party, such as another boating operator or tour company, you may have a claim for damages against the at fault party. Recoverable damages may include your accident-related medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other out of pocket expenses.
Evans Garrey is a Flagstaff law firm dedicated to standing up for the rights of wrongfully injured Arizonans. If you or someone you care about has been hurt, our Flagstaff based boating injury lawyers Erin Evans and Reid Garrey are prepared to fight for your right to fair and just compensation.
Common Causes of Boating Accidents
There are many factors that may lead to a boating accident. All too often, these accidents occur because another person failed to act in a reasonably safe manner. When this is the case, injured victims and their families may be entitled to financial compensation for the resulting damages, including medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more.
Some of the most common causes of boating accidents include:
- Inexperienced boat operators
- Inattentive driving
- Poorly maintained boats and boat engines
- Weather conditions
- Alcohol and drug use
- Improper lighting and other safety features
While many boating accidents involve boats colliding with one another, they may also involve boats colliding with piers, harbors, and other structures. Individuals may be knocked overboard or otherwise hurt due to the impact of the accident. Defective boat parts or equipment, including motors and exhaust mechanisms, may also lead to severe injuries.
Liability in Boating Accidents
Just as America’s highways accommodate everything from small, personal cars to massive commercial vehicles, boats and other watercraft may be operated by private or public parties. This means that, depending on the cause of the accident, an individual, multiple parties, or even an entire company may be found liable for your injuries.
For example, if you were involved in a collision with a boater enjoying the water for recreation, your claim may be significantly more straightforward than if you were hurt while on a tour boat operated by a major corporation. Regardless of who is at fault for your injuries and how intensely they fight back, our legal team has what it takes to protect your rights and help you secure fair compensation for your injuries.
