Boating Accident Victims Can Count on a Las Vegas Injury Attorney
If you are hurt in a boating accident at the lake, you need a qualified Las Vegas injury attorney on your side. The experienced lawyers at Greenman, Goldberg, Raby and Martinez can protect your legal right to recover compensation for treatment, recovery and rehabilitation.
Boating is a popular pastime for those who want to beat the unrelenting heat we experience during the long desert summers. More visitors to the lake means there are more boats on the water and more boats increases the risk of accidents.
Before heading to the lake for a day of fun in the sun, review the Nevada Department of Wildlife regulations governing the safe operation of watercraft. Here are some safety tips to help keep you and your family safe on the water:
- Never operate a watercraft while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- All children 12 years of age and younger must wear a Coast Guard approved life vest while on the watercraft.
- Monitor the weather while out on the lake and return to land at the first sign of severe weather.
- Keep an eye out for an orange flag, which indicates a skier is in the water. It is illegal to operate a watercraft within 100 feet of an orange flag.
Consult with a Las Vegas Injury Attorney After a Boat Accident
The main causes of boating accidents are operator error, mechanical malfunctions and defective equipment. In some cases, mechanical problems occur because the owner failed to maintain the boat properly. If you receive injuries due to the illegal or careless acts of others, our experienced lawyers can assist you in filing a personal injury claim.
