South Carolina Back Injury From Boat Accident Lawyer

 

Jet Ski Crash Injury Lawyers Serving South Carolina Victims

 
Boating is one of the most popular activities in South Carolina. While popular, boating presents considerable risks, especially when operating a boat near inexperienced recreational boat users. Boat accidents frequently result in serious, life-changing injuries. Back injuries are one common type of boat injury.  
 
At the Steinberg Law Firm, our boat accident lawyers represent boat accident victims who suffered severe back injuries due to another’s negligence. Since our firm’s inception more than 90 years ago, we have provided accident victims and their families across South Carolina with compassionate, dedicated, and aggressive representation. We understand the challenges you face on the road to recovery, and we are here to answer your questions and help you in any way we can.
 
Boat Accident Statistics
 
According to a recent report by the United States Coast Guard, there were 4,168 boat accidents. These accidents resulted in more than 2,500 injuries and 613 deaths.  
 
The most recent report from the Coast Guard shows the top five causes of boat accidents. These are:
• Operator inattention
• Improper lookout
• Operator inexperience
• Excessive speed
• Alcohol use
 
Many South Carolina boat accidents may involve several of these causes. For example, the Coast Guard estimates that alcohol is involved in 23 percent of all fatal boat accidents. Operators under the influence of alcohol are much more likely to engage in risky driving behavior, increasing the chance of a serious boat accident. 
 
When safely operated by a qualified person, boats are relatively safe. However, problems arise when inexperienced drivers negligently operate a vessel. Unfortunately, inexperienced boaters are common. According to Coast Guard data, 70 percent of fatal boat accidents involved an operator who did not receive boating safety instruction. 
 
Common Back Injuries After South Carolina Boat Accident
 
Back injuries are some of the most catastrophic types of injury. Injuries to the back and spine range in seriousness but have the potential to cause lifelong symptoms. 
 
The most concerning back injuries involve damage to the spinal cord, a soft, gel-like structure that runs through the spine. When excessive force is applied to the spine, these small bones, called vertebrae, can fracture or break. Pieces of bone can then get lodged against the spinal cord, causing excruciating pain, limited motion, and even paralysis. 
 
Common back injuries in South Carolina boat accidents include:
 
• Compression fractures
• Vertebrae fractures 
• Back strains
• Back sprains
• Herniated, ruptures, or slipped discs
• Broken back
Broken neck
 
Pursing Compensation for a South Carolina Boat Accident 
 
Those suffering back injuries after a South Carolina boat accident face a challenging road to recovery. Back injuries take a long time to heal, and symptoms may linger indefinitely. On top of recovering from physical and mental injuries, boat accident victims will need to confront medical expenses and bills.
 
Boat accident victims are entitled to compensation for their injuries and damages. At the Steinberg Law Firm, we want to help you pursue a claim against the parties responsible for your injuries. Under South Carolina law, there are generally two types of damages in a personal injury claim: economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are relatively straightforward and usually include:
 
• Past medical bills
• Future medical expenses
• Costs related to necessary modifications made to your home (like ramps)
• Lost wages
  
Non-economic damages do not have an easily assigned monetary value. Examples of non-economic damages include the following:
 
• Pain and suffering
• Mental anguish
• Emotional distress
• Physical impairment of disability
• Loss of society or companionship
• Loss of consortium (in a spousal relationship)
 
Having the assistance of an experienced South Carolina boat accident attorney can make the process of identifying all your potential damages easier, so you can take time to recover while we fight for the compensation you deserve.
