Causes of Boating Accidents
When you have been injured or lost a loved one in a boating accident, it is crucial to establish clear liability for what happened. Our team of Kansas City boating accident lawyers can use our extensive combined experience working on intricate cases and claims to determine what caused your boating accident. By proving that you did not contribute to the cause, or that another party could have done more to prevent it, we can maximize your compensation by minimizing or eliminating your liability.
Some examples of mistakes, negligence, or events that cause boating accidents are:
- Defective boat part causes the vessel to become unsafe or unstable.
- Inclement weather capsizes the vessel & boat operator should have known to avoid the water at that time.
- Boat operator intoxication causes them to recklessly steer the vessel, leading to capsize event or a collision.
- An inexperienced boater cannot safely control their vessel, crashing it into yours.
- Poorly-maintained boat parts catastrophically fail in use, causing loss of vessel control or an onboard fire.
- Commercial vessel does not contain enough life vests or lifeboats for passengers it allows aboard.
