Boating accidents can result in very serious injuries even if one is wearing a PFD. Depending on the nature of the accident, injuries arising from boating accidents include spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, fractures, lacerations and burns.
The claims for compensation arising from boating accidents can be complex. There are very specific provincial and federal laws that apply to the operation of boats on lakes and rivers (or on the ocean). Anyone injured in a boating accident needs a lawyer who is experienced in dealing with the complex legal issues that arise in such claims.
