Boaters, like drivers, may be distracted by any number of things including:
- Talking on a cell phone
- Emailing or using the internet
- Eating or drinking
- Talking to a colleague or passenger
- Anything else that takes a boater's attention away from the safe operation of his or her vessel
If a distracted boater caused your injuries, then you may be entitled to damages. The types of damages to which you may be entitled depend on all the circumstances of the case and may include compensation for past and future costs.
