Boating Accidents

Accidents Attorney

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.

Are Boating Accidents Common?

While some people never spend time on the water, others enjoy boating throughout the year. If the water is your second home, it is imperative to understand one thing: There is always the possibility of being involved in an accident. Think of operating a boat in the same manner as an automobile.

The Very Basics Of South Carolina Boating Safety

We've discussed before how South Carolina stacks up in terms of boating safety - a mixed bag of good and bad. So, what issues contribute to boating accidents? Alcohol does, of course, and everyone agrees that it's safest to wear a life jacket, even on larger boats where it's not technically required. Also, we should keep overloaded boats and pilot error in mind.
