Recreational Watercraft Injury Attorney - Ehline Law Firm
A multitude of small, sporty boats, including pleasure boats, sailboats, and power boats are registered in the state of California.
Also, many people use Jet Ski™ craft and those manufactured by other companies, such as:
- Polaris™, for example. These small watercraft are a fun and exciting method of navigating the water.
But alas, along with the pleasures of spending time on the waterways comes the possibility of having an accident.
As a matter of fact, any water accident is scary.
- This small craft can easily bang you in the face and head in many situations.
- High waves, rough seas, risky maneuvers, and riding with passengers all carry special risks.
- Even if no other craft is involved, the risks of drowning in a single vehicle incident while unconscious is great.
- California places second in the number of water-related accidents in the United States. (Read more.)
Carelessness due to drugs or alcohol is often contributing factors. Often, a lack of experience leads to catastrophic water accidents. Also, recreational watercraft accidents can cause the downfall and demise of an otherwise physically fit person. Furthermore, they could prompt him or her to look for a tort attorney.
In many cases, an investigation will be needed immediately to ascertain the cause of the accident. Our California watercraft injury law firm advises you to protect your legal rights.
You must take the following steps immediately after a recreational watercraft accident in California:
