Boating and other water activities draw thousands of tourists and South Carolina residents alike to Myrtle Beach and other points along the coast every year. Unfortunately, the good times also come with accidents in which individuals are seriously injured. Accidents involving boats and personal watercraft occur for a number of reasons. Many happen because the boat or watercraft operator is inexperienced and not properly trained. Others are alcohol-related or simply the result of inattention and carelessness. The Maguire Law Firm advocates for individuals who are seriously injured in boating accidents that are caused by someone else's negligence.
Whether you are a South Carolina resident or a tourist who is injured while visiting South Carolina and enjoyable as water activities are, they can also be extremely dangerous. A drowning is the worst case scenario of negligence on the ocean or other bodies of water. We pursue wrongful death lawsuits on behalf of grieving families who have lost a loved one as the result of someone else's negligence.
A Commitment To Help You
Personal injury lawsuits involving boating accidents or personal watercraft accidents can be difficult to prove because the series of events leading up the accident are not always as clear as they are with a motor vehicle accident.
We'll Explore Every Possibility
Because of the complexity of investigating these cases, it is important to contact us as soon as possible after your accident. We will review any police reports on the incident and conduct our own investigation.
Many individuals rent boats or personal watercraft from local businesses. Some accidents occur because the boat or watercraft is defective or not properly maintained. We will explore this possibility and pursue a personal injury case against the rental company or manufacturer if warranted.
