Boating Accidents

Boating accidents are quite common in South Carolina, especially along the Grand Strand. If you or a loved one has been injured in a boat accident, The David Law Firm can help. Attorney Byron David is a former United States Coast Guard certified Captain and operated a charter fishing boat off the Carolina coast for years before becoming a lawyer.


Negligence in a boating accident can be attributed to a careless or reckless operator whose lack of knowledge of basic boating safety rules, laws and alcohol use help cause these accidents and injuries. Call or e-mail us today to have an attorney who is experienced in boats help you.


The Coast Guard reports that the top ten factors that contribute to boating accidents are:


  • Recklessness or carelessness

  • Inattention

  • Speeding

  • Inexperience

  • Behavior of passengers or skiers

  • Alcohol

  • Hazardous waters

  • No lookout person

  • Machinery failure

  • Weather
