Common Boat Accident Injuries and Losses

Dolman Law Group Personal Injury Lawyers in Illinois

Boat accidents in Illinois can lead to a range of injuries and losses, posing significant risks to individuals enjoying water activities.

Common boat accident injuries include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI): Boat collisions or falls can result in traumatic brain injuries, causing long-term cognitive impairments or disabilities.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: An impact with another vessel or objects in the water can lead to spinal cord injuries, affecting mobility and often resulting in paralysis.
  • Fractures and Broken Bones: A boat collision can cause fractures and broken bones, impacting limbs, ribs, or other parts of the body.
  • Drowning and Near-Drowning: Accidents may lead to individuals falling overboard, risking drowning or near-drowning incidents with severe consequences.
  • Lacerations and Contusions: Collisions or contact with boat components can cause lacerations and contusions, leading to bleeding, scarring, and potential infections.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Boat accidents can cause soft tissue injuries, such as strains, sprains, or damage to muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
  • Hypothermia: Extended exposure to water after a boat accident can lead to hypothermia, causing a dangerous drop in body temperature.
  • Emotional Distress: Boat accidents can result in emotional distress, including anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other psychological effects.

Losses from boat accidents extend beyond physical injuries and can include property damage, medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. Seeking prompt medical attention is crucial after a boat accident to address injuries and ensure a thorough assessment.
