Boating While Intoxicated
Driving while intoxicated in our culture has largely come to be recognized for what it is: a despicable crime that selfishly places the lives and well-being of others on the line. However, despite having a danger comparable to that of drunk driving, boating while intoxicated is still viewed by many as a relatively harmless crime. Despite typically operating at lower speeds, intoxicated boaters pose just as much of a risk in the water as drunk drivers do on the road to all those around them.
At LaMarca Law Group, P.C., we believe that those whose irresponsibility places others in danger should be held accountable for the consequences of their actions. A person injured in a drunk boating accident shouldn’t have to shoulder the burden themselves. Contact our Des Moines boat accident lawyers today at (515) 225-2600 to learn more about the financial compensation that you may be due.
Injuries from Boating Accidents
Boating accidents can lead to injuries at least as severe as those associated with a car crash, including some or all of the following:
- Cuts and lacerations
- Broken bones
- Damage to internal organs
- Traumatic head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
In the most tragic cases, an accident victim may die as a result of his or her injuries or due to drowning that was caused by the collision. If you or someone you know has experienced any of the above injuries due to the reckless actions of an intoxicated boat operator, it is your right to see that they are held accountable.
Being injured in an accident involving an intoxicated boater can have life-altering consequences for you and your family. To ensure that you have a chance to seek both justice and financial compensation, contact the Des Moines boat accident attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at (515) 225-2600 today.
