To ease this burden, you need the help of the boating accident attorneys at Johnson Law Office P.A.. Our boating accident attorneys know the marine laws that govern the state and how to apply them to the benefit of our clients.
Building Your Case around Minnesota Boating Accident Law
Minnesota has over 10,000 lakes in our state. We also have more registered watercraft per person than any other state in the country. Today, boating or use of personal watercraft, such as a Jet Ski™ or WaveRunner™ have created a higher volume water traffic than in the past. Unfortunately, this also increases the risk for serious boating injuries.
Boat accidents are typically caused by one of the following three factors: an inexperienced boater, intoxicated operator, or some type of malfunction. More than a third of both fatal and non-fatal boat accidents are alcohol related. It is estimated that boat operators with a blood alcohol content of .10 or higher are 10 times more likely to be injured or killed in a boating accident than sober operators.
The most common types of boating accidents in Minnesota include collisions with other boats, personal watercraft, or even a swimmer. Boats tend to be wet so a slip or fall could occur on the surface, a boat could sink or tip over, or a boat fire or explosion could happen. If you are the victim of an accident involving one or more boats, you should seek out the expertise of our boating accident attorneys.
