Negligence on the water can cause severe and fatal injuries. Boats and personal watercrafts can be fun, but many boat owners fail to realize that their vessels come with serious responsibilities and are subject to a set of laws, similar to motor vehicles.
If you or a loved one suffered severe injury in a boating accident, let us guide you through the legal maze.
Boating accidents may occur as a result of:
- Intoxicated operators
- Inexperienced or unlicensed operators
- Reckless driving
- Defective engine and other boat components
- Failure of boat owners to meet safety and maintenance requirements
- Failure of boaters to adhere to boating restrictions
The experienced Little Rock team at Duncan Firm has handled many cases of boat accidents that could have been prevented. Our skilled accident investigators will work hard to find out why your boating accident occurred and where negligence played a part. By holding careless operators accountable, we hope to not only get you a fair settlement, but also prevent future injuries.
Whether you were injured while at work on a boat, on a friend’s boat, on a cruise ship vacation, or on a watercraft that was hit by a negligent boat driver, you may be entitled to a substantial recovery.
