Greeneville boating accidents cause multiple injuries and lost lives every year.

Many of these accidents are preventable, and some are caused by the negligence of third parties. At the Law Offices of Seaton & Bates, PLLC, we can help you recover financial and medical damages caused by watercraft accidents as well as construction accidents, medical malpractice, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and auto accidents.

Common Causes Of Boating Accidents

Boating mishaps can occur at any time of year and on any body of water. While no boating expedition is completely safe, several factors can contribute to the increased risk of an accident. The most common causes include:

  • Boating while intoxicated
  • Collisions with swimmers and Jet Skiers
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Mechanical defects
  • Poor boat maintenance
  • Collisions with stationary objects

All of these risk factors can be mitigated by following proper boat safety procedure. If an accident cause is determined to be a defect, we will file product liability claims against all responsible parties and fight for the compensation you need.
