Myrtle Beach Lawyers For Boating Accidents
Myrtle Beach is surrounded by water, and boating trips are extremely popular on the Grand Strand. The high volume of boats on the waterway increases the risk of boating accidents. The cause of accidents can vary greatly, ranging from boater misconduct, intoxicated boat drivers, erratic boat driving, to ingress and egress accidents at the dock. The owner and operator of the boat who caused you injury should be held liable for their negligence. South Carolina law affords you a legal remedy for your injuries; you are entitled to recover damages to include personal injury damages, emotional distress damages and property damage among other damages.
The presence of law enforcement on the water is sparse compared to the presence of law enforcement on our roadways. Therefore, a law enforcement officer is not as readily available to arrive on the scene and document a police report. It is important to report boating accidents as soon as possible. Do not trust in the promise of the other driver to pay for your damages.
If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a boating accident, you need experienced legal counsel on your side. The attorneys at Axelrod & Associates, P.A. in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, are your local personal injury attorneys.
