Speeding, Boating While Drunk, Reckless Boating

Recreational boating can be fun, but it can also cause accidents with serious injuries, drowning and wrongful death on the Lake of the Ozarks, the Mississippi River, and other area waterways.

Boating Accident Attorneys

Boating accidents are subject to many of the same laws as car accidents. The boat’s driver and the owner are responsible for damage done by their negligence. If you have been injured in a boating accident, talk to a personal injury lawyer at Gray, Ritter & Graham in St. Louis.

  • Drunk boat operators can cause serious accidents, and they can be held liable for any injuries that result.
  • Speeding and reckless driving are dangerous on waterways. When those actions contribute to a boating accident, talk to a GRG attorney who has the resources and experience to thoroughly investigate the evidence.
  • When a boat accident happens at night, it may be because the boat was not equipped with or did not use boat lights. And, congestion on waterways — day or night — can lead to accidents when drivers do not adjust to high levels of traffic.

Your GRG lawyer can protect your personal injury rights.

If you are injured on the water rather than a roadway, you still have rights. Boat owners and drivers should have insurance and should be held responsible for their negligent actions. If you have been injured in a boating accident, contact us for a consultation. We represent clients in Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas, and the surrounding region.
