Boating Accidents

<h1>Boating Accidents</h1>

Boating is a popular pastime in the Richmond area and throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. The James River and other local rivers and lakes provide ample opportunity for recreational boating. This is especially true on weekends and holidays when our local waterways can be extremely crowded with boaters who have minimal experience with the proper and safe operation of watercraft which can cause boating accidents.

Making this situation even more dangerous is the fact that most people view boating and alcohol as going hand-in-hand. While great strides have been made to raise public awareness regarding the dangers of drinking and driving, little progress seems to have been made in reducing the instances of drunken boating.

Drunk boating and other factors contribute greatly to the number of boating accidents that occur in our area every year.

The attorneys and boating accident investigation team at Cravens and Noll understand how serious boating accidents and the injuries they cause can be. Uncovering who was at fault and other specifics of an accident requires an investigation that is carried out by skilled and experienced investigators. Our firm has extensive experience in putting together the details after an accident has occurred. We can help you pursue the compensation you deserve after a boating accident.

We represent people who have been involved in accidents on the following bodies of water:

  • Lake Gaston
  • Lake Anna
  • Chesapeake Bay
  • James River
  • Shenandoah River
  • Rappahannock River
  • York River
