One of the many blessings of living in Colorado is that there are multitudes of lakes and reservoirs where you can put your boat in and enjoy the amazing weather. Whether you're fishing, water skiing, or enjoying some other type of water-related activity, a boat can increase your enjoyment as you find yourself on the open water.
The only problem with enjoying boating activities is that, just like the roads, there are those that operate vehicles without the proper knowledge of these vehicles. People may be impaired or simply not paying attention and can cause horrific accidents and injuries while operating their boats.
If you've suffered because of a boat accident, please contact our attorney, Christopher W. Jeffress of Jeffress Law today. Mr. Jeffress makes every single client his priority and will never treat you like you're a number. He will help you seek financial compensation so you can recover from your injuries, get back on your feet, and return to enjoying your aquatic activities. Call us at 303-993-8685.
Causes of Boat Accidents
Just as with an automobile accident, there are hazards everywhere while you're enjoying your boating excursion. Some of the most common boating accidents occur because of the following:
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Disobeying speed limits and other water regulations
- Violent turns that cause riders to fall out of the boat
Most boat accidents are easily avoidable; they simply require drivers to abide by the rules of the lake that they're in and to be sober and attentive. Unfortunately, this is not always the case among boat drivers and can lead to horrific injuries including the following:
- Brain injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Choking injuries
- Wrongful death
