Swimmer Collisions Lawyers

Boat operators are responsible for paying attention to people who may be swimming in the same area where they are using their boats. If a boater strikes a swimmer with his or her watercraft, the swimmer can sustain serious and even deadly injuries that often require emergency medical care. In these situations, the negligent boater can be held accountable for the damages he or she causes and may be obligated to cover the injured swimmer’s medical bills, lost wages, and other accident-related expenses.

Injuries from Swimmer Collisions

Despite their legal responsibility to do so, careless boat operators may not take the time to check for swimmers while they’re out on the water. This reckless disregard for the safety and well-being of others can seriously endanger swimmers, putting them at risk for severe injuries including the following:

  • Bone fractures from the force of the collision
  • Traumatic brain injuries due to a direct collision
  • Amputations or severe lacerations from the watercraft’s motor
  • Brain damage and health complications from drowning

Because swimmer collisions are often catastrophic, it is important to hold irresponsible boat operators accountable for their actions. Not only can victims secure the compensation they need for medical care, but they can also help to discourage boat operators from future acts of negligence.
