It is necessary to inspect boats and watercraft on a regular basis, to ensure that the boats are seaworthy and safe at all times. Boats that are unsafe have a high propensity to sink, get into trouble and be hazardous to passengers on the boats. Boat inspectors have a hazardous call to duty, to go onto sea vessels that may be unfit, unsafe or unsteady, in an effort to perform their inspections. A boat inspector needs to review the sea vessel’s equipment, stability, structure and construction, to verify that it is a seaworthy vessel for use on a lake, waterway, river, shore or ocean journey.
A boat inspector will have to review many different types of boats. The boats being reviewed need to have at least the minimum safety requirements already in place, or the craft is not seaworthy in the first instance. If you are injured in a slip and fall accident as a boat inspector, just give us a call right now. Additionally, if you are injured on a boat that is being inspected by a boat inspector, you also need to call us immediately, as we can assist you in getting the recovery compensation that you need in this type of case.
