Arizona Boating Accident Attorneys

Top Arizona Boat Accident Injury Lawyers

Thousands of people in Arizona seek outdoor recreation and enjoyment while getting relief from the summer heat by utilizing their boats and other watercraft in the lakes throughout our great state. Because Arizona is such a transient state with people moving from and visiting from all around the country, not everyone that is operating watercraft in our lakes is familiar with the state’s regultions and laws regarding boating. Unfortunately this contributes to boating accidents being far more common than you may think, and many of these incidents involve serious and sometimes fatal injuries, and significant property damage.

Recreational boating accidents account for the second largest transportation-related cause of injury in the United States after automobile accidents. Each year thousands of people are injured, and hundreds of people are killed in boating accidents throughout the country. The state of Arizona alone has over 123,000 registered motorized watercraft. Last year 123 of those were involved in accidents that resulted in 77 people being seriously injured and 11 people being killed.

Unlike accidents which occur on land, boating and watercraft accidents have special challenges as they often lack witnesses or evidence, as vessels involved in incidents often sink. Complicating these types of accidents are the maritime, state, and federal laws that govern them. It is important to hire a lawyer who is familiar with these laws and experienced in all aspects of these often compex boating claims. If you or a loved one have been injured in a boating or watercraft accident, contact the boating accident attorneys at Bighorn Law of Arizona for a free consultation to review your legal options as you may be entitled to compensation.
