Common Causes of Boating Accidents

Many boat accidents are entirely preventable, which makes it even more important to hold the responsible parties accountable. Our boat accident attorneys in Maryland have extensive experience fighting for the injured. We understand the importance of remaining in contact and providing honest assessments of the situation.

Our law firm has handled a variety of boat accident cases, including:

  • Boating under the influence
  • Collisions with other water vessels
  • Defective equipment
  • Inexperienced operation
  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding

Boat accident injury claims are much more complex than a typical injury case. Maritime torts (negligence claims) are often under Federal Admiralty jurisdiction if the injury occurs on "navigable waters." Even eyewitnesses have trouble recounting exactly what happened between the boaters involved. With boating crashes, there are often factual disputes regarding which boat operator was at fault, who had the legal right-of-way, and whether the operator was impaired by alcohol. As a result, promptly obtaining witness statements is essential to a successful boating accident case. When you retain Wilson & Parlett for a Maryland boat accident case, we act as quickly as possible.
