Drunk Boating is a serious cause of boating accidents. We take immediate action to begin an investigation on the accident and preserve necessary evidence, including witness statements, photographs, and police reports. Our investigators will contact local police, obtain information, and begin their own parallel investigation of the accident, injury, or death. Wrongful death litigation can be complex. You need a New York Boat Accident Law Firm capable of handling your case.
Boating under the influence of drugs or alcohol, just like driving under the influence, is a dangerous and illegal activity. As with drunk driving, all 50 states consider a boater legally intoxicated when his or her blood alcohol content level reaches 0.08%.
Roughly half of all boating accidents are alcohol or drug-related. The United States Coast Guard estimates that 60,000 or more nonfatal boating accidents take place annually, with a cost of $240 million.
Alcohol use can be even more dangerous in a marine environment than on land. The motion, vibration, engine noise, sun, wind, and spray all accelerate and increase a drinker's impairment. A boater becomes fatigued more quickly than a driver, which leads to a decline in the boater's coordination, judgment, and reaction time, especially when under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
