About Common Injuries
Most boating accidents occur at the end of the day when excessive drinking can influence bad decisions and weather conditions begin to deteriorate. Most fatalities are caused by the boat capsizing, or a person falling overboard.
When a boat capsizes, it is filled with water and sinks, usually flipping upside down in the process. This can happen as a result of weather, but most often occurs because of over occupancy or anchoring the boat at the stern.
The following are common boating accident injuries:
- Broken Bones: sprained ankle and knee injuries occur frequently because passengers are often trying to maintain their balance
- Head Injuries
Any injury that you experience when on a personal vessel or cruise ship should be run by an attorney who understands how the law works. Your injury could entitle you to compensation.
