Florida Teacher Killed in Boating Accident
The summer months send thousands of people flocking to local lakes and coastlines so they can get out on the water and enjoy time on their boats, jet skis, or other watercraft. For many families, however, boating accidents can turn deadly and leave the surviving family members dealing with a wrongful death.
According to reports, a teacher drowned on June 25, 2009 after being taken over a dam on a river while riding on a raft. The passengers on the raft were allegedly drinking alcohol and having fun until the small accident turned deadly. While everyone was reportedly wearing a floatation device, the recirculating water at the base of the dam kept the victim under for too long and she drowned.
Alcohol plays a huge part in many boating accidents because people feel like driving a boat isn’t as difficult as a car and there are fewer rules. The fact is boating accidents can be just as serious as auto accidents. Recently, the number of alcohol-related boating accidents has been on the rise.
Boating accidents are very difficult to handle without the guidance of an experienced boating accident lawyer. An attorney will help determine who is at fault for the accident so that the surviving family members of the victim can recover compensation for their losses.
If you’ve been involved in a boating accident, you could recover compensation, but you first have to contact an experienced boating accident lawyer in your area today to schedule an initial consultation.
