Toronto Boating Accident Lawyers

With over 400,000 lakes, rivers, and streams, Ontario offers many opportunities to enjoy the water by boat. While a weekend getaway to the lake can be a fun adventure, boating accidents are an unfortunately common occurrence that can result in serious injuries and even fatalities. A boat operator is responsible for control of their watercraft and all passengers on board. Additionally, anyone who operates a boat with a motor in Ontario must obtain a Pleasure Craft Operator Card; otherwise, the boater is breaking the law. Boating accidents can involve another boat colliding with yours or the careless operation of a boat on which you were a passenger.

If you or someone you love suffered an injury as the result of a boating accident, you should contact a Toronto boating accident lawyer immediately. In a boating accident case, it is important to prove the cause of the accident in order to determine who is at fault. If you were involved in a boating accident, you need a knowledgeable boating accident lawyer. At Mazin & Associates, PC, our experienced lawyers will work hard to get you the compensation you deserve for your suffering.

Common Causes of Boating Accidents

Just like driving a car, when someone is operating a pleasure craft, there are strict rules of operation to follow. If the court can prove that the boat operator broke any of these laws, the boater is at fault for the accident. Other common causes for boating accidents can include:

  • Operator carelessness or error
  • Boating while intoxicated
  • Failure to provide the proper number of life jackets
  • Maintenance or technical issues

If maintenance issues or problems with the craft’s construction were the cause of the accident, then the boat manufacturer could be liable for the accident. Someone else’s careless behavior should not cause you to suffer. Our boating accident lawyers will do everything we can to fight for your rights.
