Minnesota Boating Accident Attorneys & Lawyers

Minnesota has over 9,000 miles of shoreline and nearly one million registered boats (the largest per capita ownership in the United States). Hundreds of thousands of Minnesotans don’t know life without one. Many own two or three, including speed boats, ski boats, jet skis and other personal watercraft. Sadly, this enjoyable local pastime sometimes turns for the worst and boat operators or passengers are killed or injured in an accident on the water.

CAUSES OF BOAT ACCIDENTS IN MINNESOTA
With recreational boating accidents, rules concerning motor vehicles typically apply. The operator and owner of a boat owes a duty to exercise reasonable care to all passengers and other boaters. Common causes of boating accidents include:

  • Driver Inattention;
  • Driver Inexperience;
  • Use of Alcohol During Operation of a Boat;
  • Excessive Speed;
  • Failure to Yield; and
  • Failure to Monitor Water Depth.

COMPENSATION IN BOAT ACCIDENT CASES
Having suffered losses through a boating accident (either because of the negligence of someone else while you were boating or because of a design defect in your boat) your life now has been changed completely. You are entitled to full compensation for your losses. The types of compensation to which you are entitled include:

  • Past and Future Wage Loss;
  • Past and Future Medical Expenses;
  • Pain and Suffering;
  • Emotional Distress;
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life; and
  • Replacement Services

Punitive damages may be recovered in some cases (usually involving alcohol use), along with damages for surviving family members in a wrongful death situation.

CAUSES OF BIKE ACCIDENTS
Studies show that about every very six hours a bicyclist is fatally injured in the United States. Traumatic brain injury accounts for approximately 3/4 of all serious bicycle accident injuries. Negligent drivers are a major cause of bicycle accidents, such as:

  • Driver of a car, truck or motorcycle turning in front of the bicyclist;
  • Driver of a vehicle pulling out from a parking space or driveway in front of the cyclist;
  • Driver’s failure to yield or ignoring traffic signals;
  • Driver’s inattention operating a vehicle near a bicyclist;
  • Driver being excessively tired or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The majority of Minnesota bicycle accidents occur in the crosswalk. Bike riders have the same rights as pedestrians in a crosswalk, on a sidewalk, and in a bike lane.
