When Is It Possible To Sue For Injuries Suffered On A Boat?

Before you get too far ahead of yourself in estimating the value of your lawsuit, it is critical to know when you can sue for injuries that occurred due to an accident on a boat. The crucial piece in this challenging puzzle is that you are only able to seek compensation for your injuries or losses due to injuries that were caused by or partially caused by someone else and their negligence. Some common examples of another person or entity being to blame for the injuries you sustained include:

  • A failure of the boat or its equipment
  • The boat operator was inattentive or distracted
  • The boat operator was inexperienced or inexperienced in operating the vessel in the current conditions
  • A lack of proper lookouts or other boat staff assisting with the operation of the boat, navigation, or observing views of the surrounding area
  • The boat was being operated at an unsafe speed or one inappropriate for the current conditions
  • The operator of the boat was under the influence of alcohol or other substances
  • Hazardous water or weather conditions

These issues that the boat encountered are some of the many reasons for a passenger to become the victim of an injury due to the following accidents:

  • The victim falls overboard
  • The victim falls while on the boat
  • The boat capsizes
  • The boat collides with another boat, object, or landmass

Unfortunately, these accidents on a boat can result in significant injuries to a passenger, which can be life-altering. Common severe harm suffered by a boat accident victim includes:

  • Head trauma
  • Injuries to the neck, back, or spinal cord
  • Severe and disfiguring burns
  • Broken or dislocated bones
  • Soft tissue injuries, damage to internal organs, or internal bleeding
  • Severe lacerations or amputations

Your safety is always the priority when you are involved in an accident aboard a boat. However, after getting a comprehensive medical evaluation, know that DTLA Law Group is here to help you navigate the challenges that will arise, such as mounting medical expenses, determining who is to blame for your injuries, and how to best secure the compensation that you are owed from the person or entity that is liable for the accident and your harm.

Understanding The Challenges Of Assigning Liability In A Boat Injury Claim

Much like the complexities of a car accident, there can be dozens of factors that converge to cause an accident. However, unlike the average car accident and driver who is familiar with these facts and contributing issues that influence liability, boating issues, and accidents are unfamiliar to many victims. Something that might be as simple as rough seas could have a significant influence on the demise of a small boat with an inexperienced captain.

Due to this added level of complexity, it is vital to have the experienced team from DTLA Law Group handling your boat accident injury lawsuit. Our boat injury lawyers have decades of combined expertise and hands-on experience in resolving these cases quickly and fairly for our valued clients. In most instances, our exploration and evaluation begins by discovering whom to hold accountable for your losses and damages, which could include any of the following people or entities:

  • The boat owner
  • The operator of the boat or the boat captain
  • A crewmember on the boat or working on the dock
  • Another passenger on the boat
  • The boat’s manufacturer
  • Someone operating a nearby boat or a crew member on that boat
  • Occupants of small watercraft in the area, such as jet skis, kayaks, or paddle boards
  • Lifeguards
  • Anyone who was near the boat at the time of the accident or before the accident

In addition to determining who is at fault, it can also be part of your lawyer’s job to show that you are not liable for your injuries or are only partially to blame for them. This can be critical in securing partial compensation for the injuries and losses you suffered, as California is a comparative negligence state.

What Determines The Amount Of My Boat Injury Claim?

All victims of personal injuries need to know that the value of their claim will be carefully calculated by their legal team. There are no preset or predetermined values for certain injuries or kinds of accidents. Instead, the actual losses and expenses incurred by the victim are used to establish the amount of compensation owed. You and your DTLA Law Group legal team will work together to ensure that all of the items that can be included in your compensation are calculated to deliver the most robust compensation possible. The typical items classified as allowable compensation are:

  • All current and future medical expenses, including any emotional healthcare for the stress and trauma of the boat accident injuries, essential medical equipment or devise, and prescribed medication
  • Your lost income if the injuries you suffered prevent you from completing the tasks of your normal job and for any work time that is missed due to medical treatment or other appointments for the care of the injuries from the boat accident
  • The replacement cost of damaged or destroyed personal property
  • Your pain and suffering in cases with a long recovery time
  • All legal costs for the preparation, filing, and litigation of your boat injury lawsuit
