Boating Accidents

Bossier City Boating Accident Attorney

We Can Help You Recover Punitive & Restorative Damages

Boat drivers are no less obligated to follow vehicle safety laws than their counterparts on the road. Despite the absence of lanes and traffic signals on bodies of water, the State of Louisiana maintains clearly defined statutes regarding the safe and lawful operation of a watercraft. When these laws are violated and an accident ensues, the guilty party is just as culpable for the resulting damages as if they'd been driving a car or truck.

Contact usonline or call us at (318) 719-7515today to schedule a free consultation with our experienced team of legal professionals.

Major causes of boating accidents include:

  • Operator inattention
  • Careless or reckless operation
  • Operator inexperience
  • Operating at an unsafe speed
  • Failure to maintain a proper lookout

The negligent operation of a watercraft is subject to criminal penalties whether an accident takes place or not-particularly if drugs or alcohol are involved. If negligent operation does lead to personal injury or property damage, the driver can be sued for compensation. The final amount owed to you as the victim will depend on your medical bills, lost income, and long-term disability. It may also include punitive damages which serve to further deter such behavior in the future.
