Boat Accident Danger

If you or a loved one has been injured in a South Carolina boat accident caused by a negligent boat operator you deserve the professional attention of a boat accident lawyer. A person in a lake, ocean, sea, or river who has been hit by a boat, jet ski, or other watercraft may have pain and severe injuries that require immediate hospitalization. The fact that boat accidents happen in water increase the threat of injury due to the potential risk of drowning, which can be an extremely traumatic experience.

Boating Accidents in South Carolina

In South Carolina, with its many lakes, islands, and shores, boating accidents inevitably occur. Most boating accidents involve recreational watercraft, but commercial boat accidents can happen on or around cruise ships and freighters. Intoxication and substance abuse can contribute to boat accidents, especially in recreational swimming areas like lakes and near beach shore lines.

Every boat accident case is unique, and if you’ve been injured in one it’s important to have evidence to support your claim. Just like in any accident, you need this evidence to make a strong case to support your claim and render a favorable outcome. There usually tend to be many witnesses around boat accidents due to most of them involving recreational watercraft and cruise ships. The eyewitness accounts and testimony of individuals like lifeguards and coast guards can be crucial to helping you obtain maximum compensation for your medical expenses and damages.

Anyone who has been injured in a boating accident is at risk for many serious injuries due to the initial accident impact and the risk of drowning and lack of oxygen. Boating injuries can include:
