Boat Accidents in Rochester
We are fortunate in Western New York and the Rochester area to have vast boating opportunities from Lake Ontario, through the Finger Lakes and the Erie Canal. Operation of these vessels takes special skill, training, experience, and in some cases, certification. Unfortunately, all too often the operators of these vessels fail to follow the rules of the road, do not heed weather advisories, or simply fail to appreciate their surroundings which leads to horrific collisions with other boats, a fixed obstacle, or swimmers in the water.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a boating accident, our boat accident lawyers may be able to help. Headquartered in Rochester, NY, we have been providing local residents with high quality personalized legal services for over 40 years. Call 585-546-2500
Common Causes of Boat Accidents
Each summer in the Rochester NY area, thousands of boaters take to our waterways on a wide range of boats and personal watercrafts (i.e., jet skis). The most common causes for boating accidents are:
- Hazardous Water Conditions
- Operator Inexperience
- Operator Inattention
- Excessive Speed
Although you can practice every bit of precaution you cannot predict the behavior of others on the water. After an accident be sure to report the accident to the United States Coast Guard, document all evidence with photographs, and seek medical attention after an injury.
