Boating Accidents

Need a boating accident lawyer? MG Law is here to help you

Get your life back on track after Ontario boat accidents

Recreational activities like boating carry safety risks and when negligence causes personal injury, our boating accident lawyers can help. Blessed with an abundance of rivers and lakes, boating is one of Canada’s favourite pastimes. Although most do it safely, Ontario boating accidents still occur. An 18-year study by the Canadian Red Cross stated that 57% of incidents occur during the summer months.

The marine environment isn’t too dissimilar to Ontario’s roadways. There are speed limits to adhere to, signalling procedures to obey, and proper licensing and registration commitments too. Elsewhere, any Ontarian driving a boat needs to carry a Pleasure Craft Operator Card while passing an exam too. When this duty of care is overlooked, and Ontario boat accidents occur, put a boating accident lawyer from MG Law in your corner.

Ontario boat accident injuries can include:

Ontario boat injuries are often caused by:

  • Collisions with other boats
  • Onboard slips and falls
  • Propeller accidents

Need a boating accident lawyer? We’re on your side

When Ontario boating accidents occur; you should always report your situation to the police and seek immediate medical attention. After that, you should consult with a boating accident lawyer. Large bodies of water and high speeds create conditions where injuries cause life-changing consequences. You should also know that unlike driving, boating accidents don’t have “no-fault” accident coverage. With no access to Statutory Accident Benefits, Ontario boat accidents are more complicated cases to win. That’s why you need MG Law on your side.

Our boating accident lawyers are innately familiar with the Marine Liability Act and what you need to do to bring forth a claim for damages. Additionally, we’ll help you navigate the legal, insurance and healing processes. Remember, injuries can worsen over time and without legal counsel, you risk walking away with very little or pleading your boat accident case alone.
