What is Careless Operation of a Boat?

The North Carolina Vessel Operator’s Guide explains a number of rules and requirements for the safe operation of boats and other personal watercrafts that travel on North Carolina’s waterways. Boaters are expected to follow all of the rules for safe operation and behave in a reasonably careful way when piloting a vessel.

Unfortunately, careless operation is a major problem among boaters throughout the state. Boaters may be drunk or distracted while driving their vessel, may not learn how to operate the boat properly before going out to sea, or may take unnecessary risks like speeding or getting too close to other vessels.

When boaters are unreasonably careless, accidents can happen. Those negligent boaters who caused the accident can be held legally liable by all victims who were hurt. Victims who could pursue a claim against a careless boat operator can include passengers aboard the vessel with the irresponsible boater, as well as anyone else on land or at sea who was harmed due to the negligent boat operation.

A North Carolina boating accident attorney can help boating accident victims to obtain evidence of careless operation and to put together a damage claim against a negligent boat operator. Auger & Auger law has represented many victims in boating accident claims and we will help you to fight for full and fair compensation for both economic and non-financial loss. Give us a call today to find out more about how to pursue a claim for damages after you get hurt while enjoying North Carolina’s waterways.
