YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE SAFE ON THE WATER, JUST AS ON THE ROADWAYS OF THIS STATE
Although being a common recreational activity in Alabama, there are many dangers to owning and operating a boat in the state. Ken Guin’s law office is located across the street from the Walker County Courthouse in Jasper. Walker County bordered on the north by Lewis Smith Lake and to the south by the Black Warrior River, a navigable waterway. Enthusiasts face dangers with not only the open water but also with the conduct of other boat operators. If the negligent conduct of another person was the causation of you or a loved one’s injury, then seek the service of Ken Guin.
Of all the potential sources for boating and boat related accidents, the number one cause for these incidents tends to be operator error or inexperience. Additionally, a large number of boating accidents occur due to intoxicated operators. Typical boating accidents that occur in Alabama include:
Collisions with other Vessels
Collisions with Fixed Objects such as rocks, docks, and buoys
Collisions with People
Capsizing of Vessel
Over manning of a Vessel
While nearly all operators of boats enter the states many rivers, lakes, and waterways with the sole intention of having a good time — all too often these operators engage in dangerous, negligent conduct that puts the lives and well-being of others directly at risk.
