Important Information Regarding Boating Accidents in NYC

As the weather warms up, more and more people have begun to take their boats out on the water here in New York City. Unfortunately, this may mean a spike in boating accidents, and if you are someone who has recently sustained an injury in one, you should continue reading and reach out to our Bronx personal injury lawyer to learn more about how our firm can help you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of boating accidents?

Boating accidents can happen for many different reasons. Unfortunately, they are generally preventable, and oftentimes, accident victims have to struggle with their injuries due to the negligent actions of another. Some of the most common causes of boating accidents are as follows:

  • Failing to inspect the boat before taking it out on the water.
  • Boating while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Failing to observe surroundings and colliding with fixed objects or another boat.
  • Inadequate experience or training in operating a boat.
  • Failing to have the necessary safety equipment on board.
  • Defective boat design or negligent boat manufacturers.
  • Boating at unsafe speeds.

How do I know if I have a valid personal injury claim?

To have a valid personal injury claim, you and your Bronx personal injury lawyer will have to prove that you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence, whether it be the driver of the boat that you were a passenger on, or the driver of another boat that collided into yours. Unfortunately, these claims are oftentimes quite complex, especially if the accident was not filmed or otherwise insufficiently documented, which is why you cannot afford to proceed without the assistance of a knowledgeable attorney on your side.

How long will I have to file a personal injury claim in New York State?

In New York State, you will have to file your personal injury claim within the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is generally three years. Do not wait any longer than three years from the date of your accident to sue the party responsible for your injuries. Doing so will most likely result in you being barred from taking legal action. Pick up the phone and give us a call today so we can begin the fight for your rightful compensation.
