Representation for Watercraft Injuries
When you are injured in a boat accident in Sacramento, Roseville, El Dorado,
or the surrounding area, you are going to want an experienced attorney
at your side. The fact that boats operate on water add the potential for
serious injury including drowning and
death. In addition, many boat operators who would never think of drinking and
driving will operate their boats after consuming alcohol.
Boat accident cases can be more complex that regular car accident cases.
The top contributing factors to boating accidents include:
- Operator inattention
- Operator inexperience
- Excessive speed
- Improper lookout
- Machinery failure
- Hazardous waters
