Tireless Pursuit Of Your Goals

Boating accidents often result in catastophic injuries

Many Alabama residents (as well as visitors) enjoy spending time on the water during summer months. Whether people own their own boating vessels or pay for commercial rides, the open seas and smaller waterways are often crowded with pleasure-seekers in June, July and August. As with motor vehicle traffic on highways, the more crafts sharing waterways, the greater chances are of boating accidents occurring.

Also similar to motor vehicle travel, avoiding a boating mishap is often more likely for those who remain alert and do their research ahead of time regarding pertinent boating regulations and guidance to avoid seafaring disasters. Some people simply do not realize the risks involved with boat travel, such as running out of gas, getting stranded, electrical fires or collisions with other boats. Some situations are easily avoidable, such as by checking to make sure there's enough fuel in the tank before heading out to sea.

Following all speed regulations and other safety tips for boaters also increase your chances of arriving safely back to shore after a day on the water. Equally important to knowing how to safely operate and ride in a boat is knowing where to turn for help if a serious problem arises. If a collision occurs, chances are one or more people may suffer catastrophic injuries, needing emergency medical care.

Beyond the obvious medical attention needed when boating accidents occur, recovering victims often need legal guidance as well. This is especially so if you plan on filing a personal injury claim against another party for negligence. The Law Offices of Vickers, White, and Griffin, PLLC has successfully helped many boat accident victims recover their losses in court. If you'd like to discuss a particular Alabama boating incident, you may request a meeting with one of our experienced attorneys.
