Boating Accident Lawyer

Boating is a popular recreational activity in Canada. Unfortunately, boating accidents are too common. The HARRISON PENSA™ Personal Injury Group is a team of knowledgeable personal injury lawyers with years of experience and a desire to help. With each client, we protect the interests of the victims.

Common causes of boating accidents

While alcohol is often a factor in boating accidents, there are other causes. Even if the boat operator was not intoxicated, there are some typical situations that can cause boating accidents in Canada such as:

  • Operating at high speed
  • Negligence of the boat operator
  • Boating in restricted areas, or places that are not suitable for boating or their particular type of boat
  • Overcrowding and overloading
  • A boat operator who doesn’t know the basic rules
  • Defective boat construction
  • Collisions with other boats
  • Using improperly designed towing equipment or towing unsafe objects
  • Failure to monitor or follow weather warnings or changing weather conditions
