Causes of boating accidents in Hampton Roads

Sustaining a boat accident injury is a traumatic experience. After seeking medical attention, you should contact a reputable law firm. Hunter Law Firm will aggressively pursue damages on your behalf.

We can represent you in the following types of boating accident cases  —

  • 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 our attorneys at Hunter Law Firm.
  • 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 will fight for the compensation you deserve.

Personalized legal guidance

After sustaining injuries in a boating accident, the last thing you need to worry about is how to understand the law. We can guide you through the process of filing a lawsuit, so you can get the compensation you need to move on with your life.
