Boating Accident Lawyer New Orleans
New Orleans Boating Accident Lawyer
With miles of shoreline, lakes and winding rivers, Louisiana is an amazing location for recreational boating. Fishing or riding in a boat should provide relaxation. When those sharing the water with you act negligently or a design defect causes a collision, a day of recreation becomes tragic. If you’ve been injured in a boating accident as a result of someone’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. New Orleans boat accident lawyer Michael Brandner, The Big Gun™, represents clients that have been injured in recreational boating accidents.
How Boating Accidents Occur
Unlike cars or trucks, you don’t always need a special kind of license in order to operate a boat for recreational purposes. Because of this, there are many inexperienced operators who may not be aware of the proper guidelines that can put boaters at risk. Add to this, those who drive boats under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and chances of being in a boat accident go up.
In 2014, there were over 250 injuries reported from:
- Distracted Operators
- Improper Lookout
- Excessive Speed
- Alcohol Use
These are things that can be easily avoided by exercising caution and keeping a lookout for other boats and stationary, submerged obstacles.
