What causes boating accidents?

There are many different causes for boating accidents. Even the most experienced captains and top water athletes can get into situations where an accident is unavoidable.

Negligence A key cause of boating accidents is negligence. This can be on the part of a boat operator or its passengers, or it can be the negligence of another watercraft operator, or a swimmer- really anyone who is in or on the water at the time of the accident. Even if a boat is not involved in an accident that happens on or near the water in Washington, DC, an accident victim may still need the help of a personal injury boating accident law firm that is experienced with maritime laws.

Weather Foul and inclement weather can cause boating accidents, especially when changes in weather are unexpected and/or people are caught in conditions they are unprepared for.

Collisions Accidents can occur when a water vessel collides with, another vessel or person in the water; something that is fixed or stationary such as a dock or buoy; runs aground a structure in the water such as a sand bank or reef; or crashes into land when going ashore.

Alcohol & Drugs Impairment from alcohol and other drugs, including prescription drugs, is a
contributing factor to many boating and water related accidents. If the party or parties that caused your boating or water accident were impaired, a Washington, DC personal injury law firm may be able to hold them accountable for your injuries.

Inexperience Whether it is operating a motor boat, sailing a sailboat, paddling a kayak, swimming, rafting, tidepooling, or many other water activities, a participant’s inexperience with these activities can often lead them into situations where they and/or others get hurt.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
