Boating Accident Lawyers in Phoenix, Arizona
Our Boating Accident Lawyers understand that boating is an enjoyable pastime, but there are numerous safety risks associated with this form of recreation. Boating accidents typically occur because operators underestimate the dangers of operating a boat. Similar to vehicle accidents, boating accidents occur due to a number of factors:
- Mechanical or equipment defects
- Operator inexperience
- Operator inattentiveness
- Dangerous weather conditions
DUI and Boating Accidents
Any of these factors can be aggravated if the boat is being operated while under the influence of alcohol. If this is the case, the operator of the boat can possibly be charged with criminal DUI. Such negligent operation of a boat is likely to cause severe injuries such as neck injuries, head injuries, and whiplash.
Common Boating Accidents
Some common boating accidents include:
- Collisions with other watercrafts
- Drowning accident because of ejected passengers
- Swimmers being hit by a boat
- Swimmers being injured by the boat propellers
We are able to resolve the overwhelming majority of our cases relatively promptly and without ever having to go to court.

When that occurs, our office will thoroughly explain the litigation process, including the risks, benefits, and how it relates to your case before we file litigation.
