Common Boating Accident Injuries
Boating accidents can cause all sorts of injuries. Common examples include:
- broken bones, often resulting from collisions or falls on or even the boat;
- head injuries, including concussions;
- drowning or near-drowning incidents, sometimes leading to brain damage due to oxygen deprivation;
- soft tissue injuries, like sprains and bruises; and even
- spinal cord injuries, especially in high-speed impacts.
If you or a loved one has suffered such injuries or anything along those lines, contact Morgan and Morgan to have your case reviewed for free by a boating accident specialist.
Boat Accident Injuries Can Have Long-Term Consequences
Injuries from boat accidents in New York City can extend far beyond the initial impact. For instance, spinal injuries or serious fractures can lead to chronic pain or mobility issues, significantly affecting your quality of life.
Head injuries, on the other hand, even those that seem mild initially, can have lasting cognitive and emotional effects. In cases of severe trauma, such as when two boats collide with each other, victims might experience psychological repercussions like PTSD, which can be just as debilitating as physical injuries.
Liability for Boating Accident Injuries
Liability may fall on the boat operator if the accident occurred due to recklessness, inattention, or the operator being under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
If the boat had a mechanical failure, the manufacturer or a maintenance provider could be responsible.
Where rented boats are involved, the rental company might be liable. Think of a situation where the rental company fails to provide a safe, well-maintained vessel or adequate safety instructions to their clients, who then get injured or even killed in the boating accident.
Sometimes, liability can extend to marina operators or other entities responsible for safe waterway conditions.
