Charlotte Boat Accident Attorney
Boating Accidents in North Carolina
Many people enjoy recreational boating on North Carolina’s many lakes, rivers, and waterways. However, a pleasant day on the water can quickly become a nightmare when an accident occurs. All too often, these boating accidents are the result of careless, reckless, or negligent mistakes made by inexperienced or intoxicated boaters. In other cases, defective boat parts or safety equipment leads to disastrous accidents, catastrophic injuries, or even deaths.
Regardless of how the accident occurred, if you were involved in a boating accident in North Carolina, you should not have to suffer the aftermath on your own. Our Charlotte boating accident attorneys can help you pursue just compensation from the at-fault party so that you can heal and move forward with your life.

Common Causes of Boating Accidents
As previously mentioned, boating accidents are most commonly caused by negligence. This is important, as proving that someone else was negligent and that this led to the accident that caused your injuries and damages will likely prove critical to your case.
Some of the most common causes of boating accidents include:
- Boat driver inexperience
- Boating while intoxicated/under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Failure to follow boating rules and regulations
- Boat operator inattention/distraction
- Failure to follow navigational rules
- Defective/failing machinery
- Electrical system failure
- Defective boat parts/safety equipment (such as lifejackets)
- Unsafe waters
- Unseen hazards in the water
