Who is liable for injuries in a boating accident?

by | Jun 23, 2021

It depends.

Assessing fault and liability for boat accident injuries can be messy. You need to consider a range of factors including the parties involved and the cause of the accident. Depending on the circumstances, multiple parties may be liable for your injuries:

  • The operator or owner of the boat that hit or collided with your boat,
  • The operator or owner of the boat you were on,
  • The manufacturer of the boat, defective flotation devices, or safety equipment,
  • The owner of the dock or marina,
  • Anyone responsible for an obstruction in the water.
