Boating Accidents in Washington
Retain a Seattle Personal Injury Lawyer
Seattle’s waterways are a prime area for recreation and enjoying the beauty of the environment. When one is out on the water, it is not expected that a dangerous boating accident can occur. Unfortunately, many boaters believe that a day on the water must include the consumption of alcohol, which can lead to some deadly accidents on the water. An impaired watercraft operator is as much of a danger on the water as a drunk driver is on the road. Alcohol consumption is one of the main factors in many boating accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in a boating accident, it is crucial that you contact an attorney without delay.
Common Types of Injuries
The injuries that can occur in boating accidents can be very serious. Brain and head injuries can occur, and these injuries can have devastating effects on an individual. When a person is unconscious and has been under water, there are often serious effects on the brain, due to the deprivation of oxygen.
