Phoenix Boat Accident Attorney
Boat Collision & Negligence
Almost seven of every ten boating accidents are caused by some form of human negligence — inexperience, carelessness, improper loading, operating while under the influence, speeding and other types of rule-breaking. Forgetting “the rules of the road” is the biggest problem on the water, watercraft officers say. Driving a boat is much different from driving a car because on the water, a boat can approach from any direction. A 2014 study shows that in the last five years, the number of registered boats in Arizona has risen dramatically. With this rise has come a rash of serious personal injury accidents. This firm has handled many boating accident negligence cases and we have the knowledge, expertise and resources to achieve maximum recoveries for accident victims.
Boating collisions caused by drunk drivers or individuals who have been cited for Boating Under the Influence (BUI) can be devastating and can result in death or serious and permanent injuries. If you or someone you love have suffered death or injuries as a result of boating negligence or BUI, our attorneys will begin an immediate investigation, collect police and other investigative reports, consult with witnesses, and collect all necessary evidence to maximize your recovery in your boating negligence claim.
