New York Boat Accident Attorney

Why Hire Flanzig & Flanzig, LLP?

Daniel Flanzig, an avid boater, has been boating in New York for almost twenty years. He even served as one of the few civilian interns with the United States Coast Guard in its Enforcement Division. He has boated in Long Island's South Shore, the Long Island Sound, New York Harbor, the East River, and Long Island's East End. Your New York personal injury lawyer should know boating, know boats, and know the waters upon which your accident occurred.

Injured By a Drunk Boat Operator?

Drunk boating is a serious cause of accidents. We take immediate action to investigate 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 to hire a personal injury law firm that is 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 is true with drunk driving, all 50 states consider a boat operator legally intoxicated once 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 non-fatal 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. If you were hurt by a drunk boater, Flanzig & Flanzig, LLP is ready to help.
