What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Boating While Intoxicated Lawyer

Operating a watercraft while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs does not often receive the attention it deserves as a serious crime. In fact, many people have never even heard the term BWI before. The truth is that boating while intoxicated is just as dangerous, and just as illegal, as operating a car or any other vehicle while inebriated.

Of course, you may already know this, especially if you have been injured by an inebriated boater. If so, contact Jacksonville boating accident lawyer Don Guthrie at 904-296-1088 right away.

The Consequences of Jacksonville BWI Accidents

In 2003, alcohol was a contributing factor in one third of fatal Florida boat accidents. This made it the leading primary cause of all such accidents. The most common injuries caused in non-fatal accidents were:

  • Lacerations
  • Broken bones
  • Contusions (Serious bruises)
  • Head Injuries
  • Back Injuries

Even if they are comparatively mild, the injuries listed above can create many complications in an accident victim’s life, including:

  • High medical bills
  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Medical complications, including chronic pain
  • Long-term disability and/or reduced quality of life

Legal Options

If you or a loved one has been injured by a drunken boater, it is important to understand that you do have options. No one will be able to undo the accident you have suffered, but a dedicated Jacksonville personal injury lawyer will help you reduce your financial burden while seeing justice done against the party responsible for your injuries.
