Helping Victims of Boating Accident Injuries Recover the Compensation They Deserve
The San Francisco Bay presents many opportunities for boaters to enjoy themselves on the open waters. However, boating does not come without its hazards and dangers. In particular, boat owners and operators are responsible for ensuring that they operate their watercraft in a safe manner at all times – and that they maintain their watercraft in a safe manner. When boat operators violate boating regulations and fail to maintain their boats properly, accidents and injuries can occur while on board. Boat riders could injure themselves on the boat – or even in the water – and might suffer one or more broken bones, traumatic head injuries, spinal injuries, or other damages.
If you have been injured in a boating accident, the experienced San Francisco boating accident lawyers at The Cartwright Law Firm, Inc. could help you pursue and recover the monetary compensation that you deserve for your injuries. Please give us a call today to learn more about how we could help you file a personal injury claim or lawsuit arising from your boating accident.
Common Causes of San Francisco Boat Accidents
Boating accidents in and around the San Francisco Bay area can occur for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common causes of boat accidents – and accidents that occur on boats – include the following:
- Failing to abide by speed limits and other applicable boating regulations that exist on local waterways
- Intoxicated boat operation and operating a watercraft while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Reckless or careless boat operation, including distracted operation
- Failing to keep walkways and other surfaces on the boat clear of debris
- Failing to properly maintain railings, stairwells, and other areas on board the vessel
If you have been injured in one of these types of boat accidents, you may be in a position to file a claim against the boat owner or operator, seeking monetary compensation and damages for your injuries. For example, you could seek compensation for your medical treatment costs, lost earnings (in the event you were unable to work after your accident), inconvenience, and pain and suffering that resulted from the accident and your injuries.
