San Diego Sailboat Accident Lawyers

Sailing is a very common activity on larger bodies of water, and although it is sometimes thought of as a leisure sport, it can actually be very dangerous when people act recklessly. Sailboats are often much smaller than other vessels on the water; therefore, they may be harder to see when captains or boat operators act fail to pay adequate attention to the water. Whether involved in a single vessel accident or a multi-boat incident, you could be at risk of an injury that could severely impact your life.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a sailboat accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be able to recover financial compensation to pay for medical bills and other damages.

Types of Accidents

When boat operators act negligently, they endanger all who are onboard, in the water, or on a nearby vessel. There are many different incidents involving sailboats which may necessitate the pursuit of legal action, but the following may be taken as representative types of accidents:

  • Collisions with other vessels
  • Collision with stationary objects like buoys or anchored boats
  • Collision with swimmers
  • Capsizing
