Boating Accidents

Highly-Experienced Personal Injury Attorneys On Your Side

Boating is a popular pastime in Topeka, especially during the summer when a day on the Kansas River or Lake Shawnee sounds perfect. However, when safety is not kept as the top priority while on a recreational boat or another vessel, serious boating accidents can and do happen. If someone’s negligence and recklessness is the cause of the accident, then they should be the one held accountable for the resulting damages.

Mistakes That Can Cause Boating Accidents

In order to safely operate or steer a boat, a good amount of technical knowledge and even more care is necessary. A boater who fails to understand the extent of their responsibility as a boat owner or controller can inadvertently put others at risk of serious injury.

Examples of negligent acts or behaviors that can lead to a boating accident include:

  • Operating a boat while intoxicated
  • Speeding
  • Failing to provide all passengers life vests
  • Not keeping life boats on larger vessels
  • Ignoring inclement weather and rough water warnings
  • Steering a boat in channels dedicated to other vessels, like shipping routes

Boating accidents can be categorized by a collision with another vessel or crashing into a stationary object, like a rock or reef in the water. Additionally, a severe boating accident can include flooding, capsizing, and sinking. While the injuries that may be suffered in a boating accident can vary, the most common are near-drowning injuries, or fatal drowning incidents. If your loved one drowned in a boating accident, our attorneys can help you file a wrongful death claim in pursuit of specific damages, such as burial costs and lost consortium.
