Kansas City Boating Accident Lawyer
Have you been harmed in one of Missouri’s lakes?
Those of us in Kansas City and the surrounding areas spend a significant
amount of time land-locked, and relish the time when we get to spend on
one of the many beautiful lakes in the area. From swimming in the waters
to boating with friends, there are many ways to get enjoyment from these
natural resources throughout the year. As nice as spending time outdoors
and in lakes can be, thousands of people are injured each and every year
in boating accidents.
Boating accidents can occur on speedboats, jet skis, sailboats, party boats,
and privately owned vessels. No matter what kind of boating accident you
were involved in, each one has the potential to end with a
serious injury or even
fatality. Since boating accident claims can be complex, you should speak with a
skilled Kansas City boating accident attorney to discuss what your options may be.

How can I be injured on a boat?
Those operating boats have the responsibility to do so in a competent and
careful manner. They should be appropriately licensed and drive the boat
in accordance with the rules of the lake and local laws.
There are many ways that a boating accident can occur. Some of the most
common reasons include:
- Reckless driver or operator
- Excessive speed of the boat
- Boating under the influence
- Malfunction with the boat
- Inexperienced driver
As a result, people most often get hurt during collisions with other boats,
crashes with submerged or fixed objects, being harmed while on the watercraft,
flooding, capsizing, or being flung from the boat itself.
There may be numerous parties that can be held responsible for the injuries
that you have suffered and the subsequent financial tolls they may take
on your life. If the actions of the driver resulted in an accident, you
may be able to hold the driver and their insurance company accountable.
If a manufacturing defect resulted in an accident, the maker of the boat
or the part that malfunctioned can be named in a lawsuit.
