Who Can Be Held Accountable for Injuries Suffered in Boat Crashes?

Boaters are often found liable for causing personal injury and deaths in a Lexington boat accident. Examples of when boat operators are at fault include:

  • The operator was inattentive due to his phone or others on the boat.
  • The vessel had mechanical issues that the operator or owner ignored.
  • The boater was driving under the influence at the time of the accident.
  • The boater was moving too fast, causing the accident.
  • Boaters who are inexperienced.

What Types of Injuries Result From Boat Accidents?

Personal injury and, often, death are some of unfortunate results that can be caused by boating accidents on waterways in Lexington and all other South Carolina waterways. The US Coast Guard reports that South Carolina’s most common cause of death in a boat accident is drowning after being thrown overboard. Away from the coast, South Carolina’s Department of Natural Resources usually responds to accidents, and conducts investigations, involving catastrophic injury or death caused by a boating accident.

Types of Damages You Might Recover If A Boating Injury Occurs

Compensation that might be recovered following injuries in a boat accident are similar to those recoverable after any other accident. Potential compensation, which a lawyer can help in recovering, includes reimbursement for:

  • medical costs
  • costs associated with permanent disability
  • pain and suffering
  • lost wages and income
  • loss of consortium
  • loss of future earnings capacity

Who is responsible for paying for the mistakes of a careless boat operator?

South Carolina does not require boat operators to carry insurance. In case of an accident, however, every boat operator or owner should certainly carry liability insurance.

Moreover, if you suffered injuries in a boat accident, sometimes your own health insurance company might refuse to pay for your medical expenses if the injuries fall into a gap in your coverage.

It can be beneficial to seek and retain an accident lawyer if you are hurt in a boating accident. Attorneys can help protect you from boat operators and large insurance companies intentionally avoiding payment of claims.

How Much Does It Cost To Hire Lexington Boating Accident Lawyers Following a Watercraft Accident?

Hiring the personal injury lawyers at Strom Law Firm will not cost you anything until we collect compensation for your injuries. We generally operate on a contingency basis. This means that we only get paid if you get paid. After securing compensation on your behalf, we generally collect a set percentage of your settlement or judgment, which is set forth in a contract at the start of representation, as well as payment for any costs we may have extended during the case. Expenses pile up after a boating accident injury, and you do not need us adding to those expenses. Contact an attorney at our office today to allow us to get to work for you as soon as possible.

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care.

My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
