Boating Accidents

When a Day at the Lake Goes Horribly Wrong

Your trip to the lake wasn’t supposed to include a trip to the hospital. But that’s exactly what happened, and now you’re figuring out how to proceed on top of injury and trauma. The personal injury attorneys at Giroux Pappas Trial Attorneys, Southfield know that you shouldn’t have to suffer because of an accident that could have been avoided.

Reckless behavior on a boat causes far more harm than most people realize. In 2017, the Coast Guard reported 4,291 boating accidents, resulting in 2,629 injuries, 658 fatalities, and $46 million in property damage.

Common boating injuries include things like:

  • Traumatic brain injuries due to collisions, improper docking, or other unsafe practices
  • Slip and fall injuries due to a wet deck
  • Broken bones
  • Loss of limbs due to propellers or severe injury requiring amputation
  • Hypothermia
  • Drowning

But you and your loved ones are more than statistics, and you shouldn’t have to suffer a tragedy for the rest of your life because of one trip to the lake.

Were you or a loved one injured in a boating accident due to any of the following?
