Need a Drowning Accident Lawyer?

There are more than 700 boating fatalities each year in the U. S. according to the National Safe Boating Council. Maritime accidents consist of any accident that occur on a boat, shipping vessels, fishing crawlers, personal watercrafts, on docks, on offshore drilling rigs, on cruise ships, and any accident that occurs on any waterway, sea, or any marine related incident.

Many boating accidents are the result of alcohol use and drowning is the leading cause of death in boating-related accidents. Near drowning often leads to lack of oxygen to the brain, which can result in severe brain damage and mental, physical, loss of income and emotional and physical injuries.

Top Deadliest Boating / Maritime Accidents Include:

  • Boating while intoxicated
  • Capsizing
  • Collision with fixed objects
  • Open motorboats
  • Personal watercraft
  • Cabin motorboats
  • Canoes/Kayaks
  • Drowning or near-drowning
  • Pontoon boats
  • Sunken or capsized boats
  • Water skier mishaps

An Office of Auxiliary and Boating Safety report found that a majority of maritime accidents occur in lakes, ponds, reservoirs, dams, and gravel pits. These places account more than 2,400 accidents and more than 300 deaths each year in the U. S.

  • The 2nd highest number of maritime deaths occurs in creeks, rivers, and streams. These waterways account for more than 1,000 accidents, 140 deaths, and 800 injuries each year in the U. S.
  • The 3rd highest number of maritime accidents occurs in bays, inlets, sounds, and harbors. These marine sanctuaries account for more than 650 accidents, 62 deaths, and 394 injuries each year in the U. S.
  • The 4th highest number of maritime accidents occurs is the open water of oceans and gulfs. These open water places account for 260 accidents, 40 deaths, and 130 each year in the U. S.

The Jones Act

The Jones Act (part of the Merchant Marine Act of 1920), addresses the rights of seamen injured on the job while at sea. The Jones Act was designed mainly to offer relief to seamen and maritime workers who are at a high risk of injury or death at sea.
