Boating Accident Lawyers in Kansas City
Helping Those Injured on Missouri Lakes
Few even consider the possibility of a tragic crash while spending the day on one of Missouri's beautiful lakes. Boating should be a leisurely activity, not one where you worry about a drunken boat operator or the driver of the boat in which you are a passenger running aground. A moment of recklessness or negligence, however, can result in serious injuries or death, particularly for those thrown into the water and possibly struck by the propeller. If you have been injured in a boating accident or a loved one has lost his or her life, you need an experienced and skilled Kansas City personal injury attorney on your side.

What Are Dangerous Boating Behaviors?
At Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C., we understand the perils that boaters face. A drunk boat operator can cause danger on the waters that result in injury and death. Boat and personal watercraft manufacturers sometimes release defective products which can result in explosions and/or fires onboard. Due to those flaws, the risk of injury and drowning is greatly increased.
There are several dangerous behaviors for which a boat operator could be found to be negligent, including:
- Navigating in dangerously inclement weather
- Overcrowding the vessel
- Failure to carry proper safety equipment
- Contact with propellers
- Hitting a large wake at excessive speeds
- Failure to learn boating laws
- Driving at high speeds
- Collisions with other boats or objects
