Serious injury or death on the water may lead to civil action

This summer has certainly been a hot one, and with many pools and parks still closed or operating at a limited capacity, Maryland residents have flocked to the state's waters in record numbers. Boating is a popular pastime, but safety is key, especially when there are many boats, jet skis and tubes in one area. A boating accident can result in serious injury or even death. 

The Department of Natural Resources, commonly referred to as DNR, is investigating a boating accident in which a Maryland man lost his life. According to reports, a large power boat ran into a much smaller jon boat. The two people on the small boat were thrown overboard from the impact. 

Passengers on the larger boat were able to rescue one of the victims and pull him in board their vessel, which sustained no damage in the collision. They were unable to locate the second victim, however. A search team and divers later found the victim's lifeless body in the water. DNR is now launching a full investigation into the accident. 

When another party causes serious injury or death to a victim, a family may have legal recourse in civil court. Especially in a time of grief or pain, the thought of a lawsuit may seem overwhelming. Fortunately, a victim or his or her family need only reach out to a compassionate local attorney for assistance. An attorney can help a client demonstrate how the careless or negligent actions of another party directly contributed to the serious injury or death of a victim. The lawyer can also help work towards a verdict that may include compensation for the suffering or loss a family must face.
