What are the Causes of Boating Accidents?

There are many things that can contribute to boating accidents in Omaha. Many of them include negligence on the part of the driver or the boat owner. Boat owners may not care for or maintain their equipment properly and as a result the boat can malfunction. Some boat drivers tend to “showboat” when they are behind the wheel, showing off for friends or family and doing things that are dangerous to themselves and other boaters. At the same time, many people operate boats without having the experience needed to do so safely, or drive their boats while they are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

All of these can be risks that are compounded when boaters are faced with severe weather conditions. Waves and other disturbances in the water can develop quickly and with little warning, dangerous conditions which make it extremely difficult to keep the boat under control, even for the best and most experienced boat drivers.

Were you or someone you love injured in a boating accident and need help paying your medical bills and getting back on your feet? Contact Matthew G. Miller, PC, LLO today to get started on building a case.

How Can Nebraska Boating Accidents Be Prevented?

Before going on a personal watercraft or boat of any kind, it is important to know how to operate the boat or go with someone who has been trained thoroughly in boating operations. Always wear a Coast Guard approved life jacket and ensure that someone on board knows first aid. You want to ensure that whoever is in control of the boat knows the local waterway laws and that they are familiar with current water conditions and weather predictions. Accidents are bound to happen, but you can reduce the risk of serious injury if you are careful to avoid common mistakes.

  • Internal Injuries
  • Broken Bones

“I never dreamed I would need legal counsel until my husband was killed in a boating incident. I was lost as to what to do next. I knew I needed a lawyer. Matt was the first lawyer I visited. By the time I left his office, I felt comfortable and confident that Matt had my family in his best interest. I thought to be fair I should visit other lawyers. I interviewed two other lawyers and knew within minutes I was just another client to them. Matt was personable, honest, caring and easy to talk to. He explained the options and decisions of my case thoroughly. He acted promptly and went the extra mile to help my family. When it was time to settle, I felt like I was discussing my case with a close friend. He was intelligent and knowledgeable and counseled me about what was best. Matt helped my family and me through a very difficult time. I would refer Matt to anyone seeking professional advice.” - Kim Mahoney, client
