Boating Accidents In Myrtle Beach
In the North Myrtle Beach, Myrtle Beach, Garden City, Surfside Beach, and Murrells Inlet area water is a way of life. There are jon boats, sail boats, ski boats, jet skis, center consoles, and more that are always traveling up and down the waterway, out into the ocean, or through the local creeks that run in and adjacent to this great area. Boating can be fun and relaxing, but sometimes accidents occur, even though they are not your fault. Boating accidents can cause severe injury or death. There are many factors which go in to determining who is the at- fault boater when a boating accident occurs. Even though there are no speed limits or traffic lights out on the water, there are still rules in which boaters must follow.
If those rules are not followed properly, then negligence may occur and an at-fault boater can be liable to injuries that occur on the water. Everyone should make sure to follow and know the state, federal, and local markers, before traveling by boat.
