Greenberg & Bederman handles boating accident cases in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC
Each year thousands of people are injured in boating accidents. Accidents can occur in a variety of situations ranging from ocean-going commercial and cruise line vessels to small pleasure craft on our navigable waterways. When referring to a motor vehicle accident we often refer to the ‘Rules of the Road’ in order to determine what each person’s responsibilities were regarding the safe operation of their vehicle. Similarly, there are rules established by the Coast Guard and various state agencies that outline the rules for safe boating.
Common boating accidents in the Maryland, DC and Virginia region occur on the Potomac River, the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, the Patuxent River and Deep Creek Lake, to name a few.
