Boat operator charged with negligence

When it comes to boating, Maryland has much to offer. Creeks and rivers crisscross the state, and the Chesapeake Bay creates plenty of opportunity for sports and recreation. Operating a boat is a big responsibility, and a person must have a safety certification before operating a boat in Maryland. Negligence on the part of a boat operator can result in injuries and legal trouble. 

Recently, the Maryland Natural Resource Police, tasked with patrolling the state's waters and enforcing laws, cited a boat operator for negligence. The man had run a small boat into a buoy. According to reports, the buoy was lighted to help ensure visibility was not a problem for boaters. Upon impact, two people in the boat were injured. The victims were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

If a boat operator has shown negligence in Maryland, victims may want to explore options for legal recourse. A Maryland victim can reach out to an experienced attorney to get started. Recovery can be a long, expensive process.

A victim may face serious burdens, such as medical bills, emotional trauma or loss of wages due to inability to work. An attorney can help a client demonstrate how negligence on the part of a boat operator caused a victim to suffer, and help a client work toward a favorable result. In successful civil cases, a judge may order monetary compensation to be paid to the plaintiff in an effort to help a boat accident victim recover from injuries and recoup any losses.
