Can I Sue If I Was Injured in a NJ Boating Accident?
Residents in and around New Jersey and the Atlantic seaboard regularly take part in boating activities. However, these incidents can lead to serious injuries or even death for passengers. According to the US Coast Guard, there were 4,291 total boating vehicle accidents during the latest reporting year across the country. Out of these reported incidents, there were 2,628 injuries and 658 fatalities. During that same reporting year, there were 116 boating accidents reported in New Jersey.
In many of these cases, the boating accident is caused by the careless or negligent operation of the owner or boating operator. The USCG states that most boating accidents are preventable and their list of the top causes of boating accidents includes:
Navigation Rules Violation
Weather and Hazardous Waters
If it can be shown that the boat operator or owner was negligent and that their negligence caused an injury, then the victim should be able to file a lawsuit to recover compensation for their losses.
