Boating and other water activities draw thousands of tourists and South Carolina residents alike to Myrtle Beach and other points along the coast every year. Unfortunately, the good times also come with accidents in which individuals are seriously injured. Accidents involving boats and personal watercraft occur for a number of reasons. Many happen because the boat or watercraft operator is inexperienced and not properly trained. Others are alcohol-related or simply the result of inattention and carelessness. Maguire Law Firm advocates for individuals who are seriously injured in boating accidents that are caused by someone else’s negligence.
Whether you are a South Carolina resident or a tourist who is injured while visiting South Carolina, getting injured as a result of an accident that occurred on the water can leave you feeling lost and out of control. We pursue wrongful death lawsuits on behalf of grieving families who have lost a loved one as the result of someone else’s negligence. Drowning is a common result of negligence on the ocean and bodies of water.
A Commitment To Help You
Our personal injury attorneys know lawsuits involving boating accidents or personal watercraft accidents can be difficult to prove because the series of events leading up to the accident is not always as clear as they are with a motor vehicle accident.
We’ll Explore Every Possibility
Because of the complexity of investigating these cases, it is important to contact us as soon as possible after your accident. We will review any police reports on the incident and conduct our own investigation.
Many individuals rent boats or personal watercraft from local businesses. Some accidents occur because the boat or watercraft is defective or not properly maintained. We will explore this possibility and pursue a personal injury case against the rental company or manufacturer if warranted.
