Sacramento Boating Accident Lawyer
Put Decades of Experience in Your Corner
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 adds the potential for serious injury including drowning and fatal accidents. 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 than regular car accident cases. The top contributing factors to boating accidents include:
- Operator inattention
- Operator inexperience
- Excessive speed
- Improper lookout
- Machinery failure
- Hazardous waters
- Force of wave/wake
- Violations of safety rules

What To Do After a Boating Injury
- If you are on the boat, report the accident to the boat operator. If you have fallen overboard, call for help and find something to hang onto. Everyone on a water vessel should have a life jacket at all times to help them stay afloat.
- Seek medical attention immediately, even if you do not feel hurt at the time of the accident. Some injuries may take time to appear.
- Collect registration/insurance information from the boat operators and contact information from eyewitnesses, document what happened, and take photographs.
- Report the accident Coast Guard or the reporting authority of your state
- Contact an attorney for help recovering damages for your injuries.
