If you've been in a boating accident in North Carolina, it's difficult to know what to do or where to turn.

What should I do after my boat accident?

You should always consider safety first. There are a lot of unique things to consider after a boating accident.

  • Do a head count. After making sure the boat is still afloat and intact, make sure everyone is accounted for.
  • Emergency first aid. Perform emergency first aid, if necessary, and call emergency services. If appropriate, also contact the Coast Guard.
  • Evaluate your surroundings. Are you in the path of other boats or maritime traffic? Make sure to move to a safe spot.
  • Stay at the scene. Don't leave the area until it's clear that everyone is OK, has received any medical care, and any police or other reports have been handled.

Even if you appear to be uninjured, it's important to have a medical professional evaluate you as soon as possible. Many injuries may not manifest until hours or days after the accident. If you ignore going to the doctor, it may signal the insurance company that your injuries don't exist, which may result in lower compensation for any claims that may be brought in the future.

Should I call a lawyer after my boat accident?

Yes! Contacting a lawyer can help you get any compensation you deserve from the accident, and the lawyer can help fight for your rights.

The other boater may have been negligent, there could have been faulty parts on the boat, or any other possibility that a lawyer would be able to help determine where liability may sit.

How much will I get paid for my boating accident?

Personal injury cases can vary greatly in compensation, depending on the unique circumstances in your accident. If you were injured in a crash that wasn't your fault, there are a number of ways you may be due compensation, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • And more...
