A yacht passenger injury is serious and legal representation is a must to navigate admiralty and maritime law. If you get injured on a yacht or a sailboat, you must be able to prove that your injury resulted from negligence in order to be able to recover money. Negligence is the failure to act with reasonable care when sailing a yacht. With yachting accidents, Conlogue Law LLP proves that someone failed to act with reasonable care and that as a result you got hurt.
Types Of Boating Accidents
There are various types of boating accidents. The majority of boating accidents are as follows:
- one boat hits another boat–both yachts or boats are at fault for this accident, and you can recover compensation from both
- a boat hits another boat’s wake–if a vessel is not following proper boating laws and regulations, port speeds, and safe boating practices, you can be compensated for your injuries
- your boat hits a submerged object, rock, or land–yachts and sailboats are to keep clear of rock and land, and collisions likely entitle you to compensation
