Boating Accident attorneys

If you are the person who “caused” the accident, the Snohomish Law Group watercraft accident attorney has the experience to represent you against civil or criminal liability.
If you were injured by another boater’s negligence, Snohomish Law Group has the experience to help you prove that negligence.

Boating accidents may happen for a number of reasons

The top five contributing factors to boating accidents are operator inattention, operator inexperience, excessive speed, improper lookout and alcohol use. All five factors involve some level of negligence.

Severe weather, outside of the operator’s control, may make it difficult to navigate safely or cause damage to equipment. In this situation, a boat owner who doesn’t have adequate safety vests for the number of passengers could be considered negligent.

Operating a boat while under the influence of drugs or alcohol (BUI) violates Washington law. A boat operator who is found to be BUI and causes an accident may face criminal charges, and could also be held liable for property damage, medical expenses and other personal injury costs.

If you believe your boating injury was caused by negligence, contact us at 425-444-4444 or 888-246-1945. The consultation is free.
