Help for victims of summertime boating accidents is available

Summer is in full swing and with it comes boating fun and time spent on local Virginia waterways and lakes. Unfortunately, however, some of that summer fun can lead to serious accidents such as a fatal boating accident. Boats, jet skis and other watercraft are all common sites on local waterways. But many boaters may not follow boating rules, which can lead to disastrous results and serious accidents.

Waterways, like roadways, have specific boating safety rules that must be followed to ensure the safety of everyone enjoying the water. When boaters and others enjoying the water do not familiarize themselves with these rules, or simply disregard the rules, accidents can occur. Boating collisions, that may sometimes involve jet skis or other watercraft, can cause serious and debilitating injuries or may result in death.

Boats do not come with all of the safety features of automobiles, and as is true of car accidents, many boating accidents may also be alcohol related. As is also true of many car accidents, a number of parties may be involved in a boating accident including the victims and their families, the negligent party that caused the accident, marinas, manufacturers of watercraft and insurance companies. The legal system is equipped to help victims and their families handle the multitude of parties and complexities that may arise when pursuing a claim for damages following a boating accident.

In addition to the stresses that follow an unexpected boating accident, victims and their families may encounter challenges associated with the physical, financial and emotional harm they are likely to suffer following the accident. As a result, victims and their families can pursue those responsible for the accident to get compensation for medical expenses and other damages.
