A Message From Attorney Bill Connor

A Boating injury can occur as a result of several different reasons.
A common belief among boaters is that in the event of an accident the victim assumes all responsibility. This is simply not true in some cases.

Here are some situations where a boating accident victim is NOT at fault

  • Purposely navigating into a large wave or wake at an unsafe speed or angle
  • Ejections from a watercraft due to improper handling or knowingly navigating into bad weather
  • Coming in contact with boat propellers
  • Operating a watercraft at high speed
  • Not keeping careful watch while a passenger is skiing or tubing
  • Failure to educate oneself with navigational rules
  • Colliding with other boats and/or watercraft
  • Faulty watercraft design
  • Improper boat repair
  • Colliding with an immovable object, water buoy, dock or bridge
  • Overcrowding or Overloading.
