Boating Accidents in Virginia

Newport News Injury Attorney Serving All Hampton Roads Cities & Counties

Boating and other recreational water sports are popular forms of recreation throughout Virginia. Whether on the state's beaches by the Atlantic Ocean or at Chesapeake Bay or any of the commonwealth's lakes, recreational waters provide hours of enjoyment for residents and visitors. Although the ocean, bay, rivers, streams, and lakes should be places of relaxation, negligence on the part of another individual can result in serious injuries and wrongful death. At Larry King Law, our Newport News boating accident lawyer has 50 years of experience that can be put to use for the benefit of your case. Pursue just compensation with our firm's legal guidance.

Were you injured in a boating accident?

With the increase in recreational boating, the risk of associated injury has also increased, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. About 200,000 personal water crafts (PWCs) are sold each year with more than 1 million already in operation. For recreational vessels such as PWCs, the primary cause of fatalities is blunt force trauma caused by another operator's negligence.

Drowning is also a tragic result of boating accidents. If a boater has failed to follow the laws pertaining to boating, he or she can be held liable for damages. Some of the boating laws that should be followed include:

  • Drinking and Boating
  • Speed limits
  • Safety equipment
  • Proper lighting
  • Yielding right-of-way

Consult Our Newport News Injury Lawyer

The owner or operator of the other boat can be held responsible for your injuries if the accident was caused by operator negligence, driving under the influence, or failure to keep a proper lookout. If you are pursuing a claim for compensation because of a boating accident, we encourage you to have your case evaluated by a member of our firm. Your case can be aggressively handled by our Newport News boating accident attorney. At Larry King Law, we can fight for your right to compensation from the responsible party.
