Causes of boating accidents around Norfolk, Hampton and Portsmouth
Sustaining a boat accident injury is a traumatic experience. After seeking medical attention, you should contact a reputable injury law firm. At the auto accident law firm of Thomas L. Hunter, P.C., we can aggressively pursue damages on your behalf.
We are qualified to assist you with the following types of boating accidents —
- Collisions — Just as there are laws governing traffic on land, there are also rules that govern the lakes, rivers and other bodies of water in Virginia. Individuals who fail to follow these laws may collide with other vessels. If you were struck by another boat operator, seek the assistance of experienced boat accident attorneys at Thomas L. Hunter, P.C.
- Explosions — It is the responsibility of boat owners to regularly inspect and maintain their craft. If a component of a vessel malfunctions or fails to work properly, it can lead to explosion and cause burns and other serious injuries.
- Slips and Falls — The deck of a boat should always be clear of debris. An unkempt deck can cause passengers to sustain slip and fall injuries.
- Drunk Driving — Boat operators who drink and drive pose a serious danger to everyone on the water. If a drunk driver causes injury to you or someone you love, our tenacious attorneys are ready to rush to your side.
