Inexperienced Boaters Put Others at Risk

by Staff Blogger | April 3rd, 2017

Now that spring has officially sprung, it won’t be long until it’s prime boating season in the Bay Area. For boating enthusiasts, there’s nothing better than spending a day out on your favorite California lake or waterway. Unfortunately for some San Franciscans, fun afternoon outings on the water have turned into nightmares when other boaters failed to adhere to boating safety.

Unlike operating a motor vehicle of any kind, you do not need a license to operate a boat in California. That means there are a lot of inexperienced boaters out on our waterways, many of which don’t know (or don’t care to know) important safety procedures every boater should learn. That puts everyone else on the waterway at risk, and the results can be deadly.

At Berg Injury Lawyers, we know how difficult it can be to establish fault in a boating accident. It takes years of experience and a strong knowledge of the boating world to determine what happened and whether it could have been avoided. That’s why if you’ve been involved in a boating accident, you need to call an experienced San Francisco boating accident attorney today for a free consultation. We’ll fully investigate your case and fight to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions. Contact us today.
