New Haven Boating Accident Lawyer

The majority of boating accidents occur because people underestimate the dangers associated with being on the open water. For example, recreational boaters may be more focused on having a good time than on operating the boat in a safe manner, or tanker operators may not pay attention to small fishing boats in their path. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious boating accident injury caused by the carelessness or recklessness of another, talk to a personal injury lawyer at Jacobs & Jacobs in New Haven about your options for pursuing full and fair compensation.

How Jacobs & Jacobs Handles Boating Accident Cases

The causes of boating accidents vary greatly. Perhaps the most common type of boating accident involves recreational motorboats colliding with another vessel. This is followed closely by accidents involving skiers, personal watercraft, and falls overboard.

Many of these accidents, as well as the resulting injuries or drownings can be directly attributed to:

  • Operator inattentiveness
  • Operator inexperience
  • Excessive speed
  • Boating while intoxicated
