Boating & Personal Watercraft Accident Injury Lawyers

Have You Been Seriously Injured in an Accident Involving a Boat or Personal Watercraft?

Enjoying time on the water should be a safe, relaxing, and fun experience for everyone involved. Sadly, hundreds of people suffer injury in serious accidents involving boats and personal watercraft every year.

Common accidents include collisions with other crafts, propeller accidents, slip-and-fall injuries, and falls overboard. Related injuries can consist of minor scrapes, broken bones, head injuries, coma, and even deaths and drownings.

The operator of a boat and its owner has a duty to exercise care in order to prevent injuries to passengers and other boaters.

Unfortunately, there are numerous fatalities related to boating and personal watercraft accidents in Ontario each year.

  • Reckless behavior
