Boating Accident - Ohio Personal Injury Lawsuits

In Ohio, residents are fortunate to have access to Lake Erie and many other lakes and rivers throughout the state. Many people take advantage of these accessible waterfronts by fishing, swimming, jet skiing, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, wind surfing, boating, or cruising. With a large number of people enjoying accessible Ohio waterfronts, there are bound to be accidents. 

Common causes of accidents include engine issues, alcohol, new boat operators, use of unsafe products, bad weather, overcrowding, and failure to use a life jacket. All of these causes of accidents pose serious risks of harm and can lead to personal injuries such as broken and fractured bones, brain injury, hypothermia, unconsciousness, anxiety, and even death.

Being involved in a boating accident can be an incredibly frightening experience, but it is important to take certain steps after a boating accident occurs. You will always want to ensure everyone is safe, contact local authorities, document the scene, and call a personal injury lawyer to discuss your rights.
