If you are like many people in Phoenix and surrounding communities, you love taking your boat out on a lake to enjoy the beautiful Arizona weather. However, your relaxing day turns into a medical and legal nightmare when you are involved in a boating accident. Unfortunately, Arizona is one of the top states in the nation for boating accidents that result in severe injuries. Just as it is with car accidents on dry land, boating accidents are often the result of carelessness on the part of the other boater. If you are now facing months of medical rehab, a mountain of bills, and have no idea when you will be able to return to your job, contact us here at Gary Phillips Accident Law.
Since people take their boats out on lakes and other bodies of water to relax, they sometimes have too much to drink while boating. As a result, you can find yourself being injured by a boater who was drunk while steering their boat on the water. Just like a drunk driver of an auto, these boaters can and should be held accountable for their actions, which is why you should immediately consult with us here at Gary Phillips Accident Law after your boating accident.
Speeding and Reckless Driving
When many people get their boats into the water, they fail to remember that there are plenty of recreational and maritime laws that must be observed. For example, boaters are required to obey speed limits in certain areas and conditions, and also cannot drive their boats in a reckless fashion. However, these laws are often ignored, resulting in serious injuries to innocent victims. Should you be injured by a boater who made no effort to drive their boat in a safe and reasonable manner, speak to us here at Gary Phillips Accident Law.
Rather than continue to worry about how you will pay your medical bills and replace the income needed to support yourself and your family, schedule a consultation today with us here at Gary Phillips Accident Law to discuss your accident in more detail.
