Boating Accidents in Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Boating and maritime accidents are uniquely dangerous as they don’t happen as often compared to other vehicle accidents. However, individuals are still at risk of being involved in accidents with watercrafts when in any and all types of waterways. When such accidents occur, the results can be devastating, often leading to severe injuries and significant financial burdens. Boaters are especially vulnerable resulting in injuries such as:

  • Broken bones or fractures
  • Loss of limbs
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Burns
  • Loss of hearing or sight
  • Paralysis
  • Fatality

These injuries often require extensive medical treatments, including emergency care, surgeries, and rehabilitation. Many victims find it challenging to cover these expenses, especially if they are unable to work due to their injuries. This financial strain can be overwhelming for victims and their families.
