A boat operator may be deemed to have operated
negligently under numerous circumstances that result in injury, including:
Under Louisiana state law, a DUI may be given to a boat
Any individual registering a blood or breath alcohol
level over the legal limit may be subject to fines and jail time.
In Louisiana, boat owners
found to have knowingly allowed someone else under the influence to operate
their vessel are also responsible for any resulting injuries and damage.
As set by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and
Fisheries, the behavior of a boat operator falls under the category of
“reckless operation” if they violate the state’s official Rules of the Road.
This code lays out passing and right-of-way standards, as
well as the state laws about boating in certain types of weather, excessive
speeds, wake zones and around dive flags. Failure to follow these regulations
may result in a citation for careless operation.
Our boat accident lawyers also handle maritime claims for workers who were injured on-the-job. Learn more about maritime claims here.

boat accident attorneys at Dudley DeBosier can help discern which party is at
fault for injuries sustained through a personal watercraft accident, and
whether or not a claim can be brought against the manufacturer and/or the
renter of the vehicle.
