Cincinnati Stationary Object Collisions Lawyer

Boating on rivers and lakes is a recreational activity that appeals to many people. Because it is viewed primarily as a form of recreation, individuals may overlook some of the inherent dangers. The reality is that boating has the potential to be every bit as dangerous as driving a car on the roadway. One specific hazard is the risk of a negligent boater colliding with a stationary object in the water, which may cause persons to be thrown overboard, among other resulting safety threats.

If you or your loved one has been harmed in a boating collision involving a stationary object, we can help you to pursue financial compensation from the responsible party. Contact the Cincinnati stationary object collision attorneys of Stepleton Dugan, LLC, by calling 513-321-7733 to discuss your legal rights and options with a skilled and experienced lawyer.

Stationary Object Dangers

Boat operators – and, indeed, people in general – are more likely to take note of moving objects. Accordingly, a boater is apt to note and avoid other vessels, swimmers, skiers, and others on the water. This leaves a number of considerable dangers potentially unnoticed, as stationary objects are unlikely to draw attention from a negligent boat operator. The following are stationary objects which may be struck by an inattentive pilot:

  • Trees
  • Sandbars
  • Rocks
  • Anchored watercraft
  • Piers and docks (particularly the remnants of old ones which are no longer in use)
  • Buoys

Due to the unpredictable nature of collisions with stationary objects, these incidents result in injuries over 70% of the time, according to numbers reported by the US Coast Guard.
