Tulsa lawyers who protect your rights after a boating accident
There are a number of things that make boating accidents dangerous, not the least of which includes the risk of long-term brain damage if a person has a near-drowning experience. It is the responsibility of the boat operator to protect all passengers, and if that person is negligent or operates while intoxicated, he or she may be held liable for any injuries that occur. These personal injury cases can be challenging, but they ensure that everyone remains safe in the future.
Different types of boating accidents
There are a number of different types of boating accidents that may happen on the water, including those involving both small and large boats. We can help you with all kinds of personal injury cases related to boating accidents, including those involving:
- Recreational boats. These types of boats, including fishing boats and speedboats, are typically enjoyed by friends and family in a recreational environment. However, without the proper precautions in place, injuries may occur.
- Personal watercraft (PWC). These boats are popular for their freedom and speed, but they also have certain risks associated with them. Collisions with other watercraft or hitting the water at high speeds can cause serious injuries.
- Ferries and charter boats. Operators of these larger boats have an obligation to protect their passengers, including from incidents like slip and fall accidents, flawed equipment and even sinking.
