BOAT ACCIDENT VICTIMS DESERVE THE BEST 

One of the best attractions that Eastern North Carolina has to offer is the incredible range of lakes and coastline that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. One of the best ways to experience our water is, naturally, by boat. Most people are simply happy to share a lovely day with those they care about, and do so responsibly. Others, unfortunately, do not pay as much attention to those around them, and can cause accidents. These are sadly far more common than they need to be, and are often caused by blatant negligence. When someone is operating a boat in any less than their highest capacity, the possibility of injury skyrockets. These injuries can range from minor issues to death. 

Due to Greenville's proximity to the shore, Wayne Hardee has seen more than his share of boat accidents and the resulting injuries. With decades of legal experience, Wayne has made a name for himself as one of the best boat accident attorneys in the state of North Carolina. If you or someone you love was injured or even killed in a boating accident that was not your fault, give us a call. We will do everything we can to make sure that the person or people who did cause the accident are held accountable. 

COMMON BOAT ACCIDENT CAUSES 

Boating accidents, by nature, are often catastrophic. These are large, heavy vehicles and often the high speeds that they are pushed to can seriously injure someone. This is especially true if a person is not restrained or wearing the appropriate safety gear. Add in the possibility of drowning for any reason, and you quickly realize that these types of incidents can be a recipe for disaster. These accidents are often caused by issues beyond your control, such as another's negligent behavior or a problem with the boat itself. 

Commonly seen reasons for recreational boat accidents are: 

  • Distractions, such as texting or partying
  • Drinking Alcohol
  • Failure to Pay Attention
  • Speeding Excessively
  • Speeding in “No-Wake” Zones
  • Underage Operators
  • Inexperienced Operators
  • Defective Parts
  • Defective Equipment
  • Failure to Navigate Correctly
  • Inclement Weather
  • Poor Boating Conditions
