Holding Boat Owners & Operators Accountable
There are many reasons why you can get injured on someone else’s boat, but most often come down to how a vessel was maintained, how it was operated, and what safety precautions were taken.
Boat owners and operators are required to make sure their craft is in a safe condition to take out on the water and carry passengers. They’re also obligated to follow certain rules for safe boat operation, such as respecting speed limits in harbors and other speed-restricted areas. They may also be legally required to take certain safety measures such as providing life-jackets or educating passengers about how to stay safe on their vessel.
If you were harmed on someone’s boat, we understand you may feel responsible or that you made a mistake. We want to assure you that owners and operators carry a great deal of responsibility for your safety aboard their vessels, and that you can hold them responsible for an injury you suffered.
