Boating Accident Attorneys in Mesa

Fighting for the Compensation You Deserve

In and around Mesa, traffic accidents make up a substantial percentage of the cases that personal injury attorneys deal with. Auto accidents of many different types occur in the U.S. with alarming regularity, including car, truck, bus, and motorcycle accidents. However, a surprising fact you may not be aware of is that, even in a landlocked state such as Arizona, boating accidents are still an unfortunate fact of life. There are numerous recreational lakes and rivers near to Phoenix that boat owners like to visit and, although boating should be a fun time for the whole family, boating misadventures and injuries repeatedly occur.

At Skousen, Gulbrandsen & Patience, PLC, our Mesa boat accident lawyers know how startling the boating accident facts and figures are. For example, in 2012, the American Boating Association found "the Coast Guard counted 4515 accidents that involved 651 deaths, 3000 injuries, and approximately $38 million dollars of damage to property as a result of recreational boating accidents."

If you or a loved one has been injured in a boating accident, contact us online or call (480) 999-9181 for a free consultation.

Causes of Boat Accidents

The boating accident statistics are made even worse when you consider "Alcohol use is the leading contributing factor in fatal boating accidents; it was listed as the leading factor in 17% of deaths."

The over-consumption of alcohol is not the only reason why boat-based disasters occur; the other chief causes of boating accidents include:

  • Operator inexperience
  • Excessive speeding
  • Reckless operator or passenger behavior
  • Lack of concentration
  • Machinery malfunction

Boating Accident Damages

If you have recently been involved in a boating accident in which the injuries you or a member of your family have sustained were not your fault, you may deserve compensation. This is especially true if your injuries have negatively affected your quality of life, such as failing to be able to walk or travel to work without assistance. Another thing to keep in mind is that, although financial difficulties due to costly hospital bills are one thing, it is another thing entirely if a boating disaster results in the death of a loved one. Skousen, Gulbrandsen & Patience, PLC provides first-class legal help to those who have suffered due to the negligence of a careless, distracted, and/or drunk boat operator, or due to boating equipment failure.
