      Common Causes of Boating Accidents in New York

      Boating accidents can happen in New York whether you’re on a personal watercraft or while you’re on a ferry. Common causes of personal boating accidents in New York include:

      • Bad weather conditions.
        If inclement weather is coming, you shouldn’t take your personal boat onto the water. It’s important that you protect yourself.
      • Unexpected bad weather or waves.
        Sometimes, unexpected bad weather or large waves can cause a boating accident. Before you go out on the water, make sure that your boat has the proper safety equipment on board. Ferries should also have proper safety equipment.
      • Driving a boat at the wrong speed.
        Driving a boat too fast or even too slow can put you or other people in danger. Driving a boat too fast can cause a boating accident because the boat is unable to slow down in the event of a problem. Driving a boat too slow can mean that you’re hit by another boat.
      • Driving while intoxicated.
        Just because a boat isn’t operated on the road doesn’t mean that it’s legal to drink while operating the boat. Driving while intoxicated is against the law even on the water.
      • Mechanical failures and fires.
        Sometimes boating accidents happen and they’re not the fault of the driver. When mechanical failures happen, the boat can malfunction. A fire may break out. This can be extremely dangerous if you’re out on the water alone or even with your family or friends

      Hi Mr.John LeifertI just wanted to shoot you a quick note to thank you again for your services. My car accident, I was incredibly stressed the full dealing with insurance companies and sorting out what was my next step towards my injuries. Especially since it was my first time involved in any type of traffic accident, I was so lost and confused!Luckily I discovered your service at the perfect timing. You were able to make sense of the multiple demand letter requests, photo evidence, and medical documents that kept my case in track. You always make sure to follow up with me. I'm so happy we were able to receive a successful outcome. Good luck to you and your associates and thank you again.Miguel Perez

      When I needed to take on a leading US automaker, I turned to the White Plains law firm of Denlea & Carton and their commercial litigation team. They filed an action in Federal Court and after three years of hard fought litigation, they helped me to obtain a great result ! Not only for myself, but for consumers around the country. Jeff, Jim and everyone at the firm were superb. They communicated with me regularly, and ensured that I understood everything that was happening. I couldn’t be happier about my representation. If you need a firm that gets great results, and isn’t afraid to go up against large corporations, look no further than Denlea & Carton!

      I researched quite a few firms before deciding on Denlea & Carton, and I couldn’t be happier that I did. They surpassed my expectations in every respect. They were kind, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. They treated my case as if it was their own, and never backed down from the fight with the defendant until they obtained an incredible result for me. There is a difference between law firms, and I’m glad I took the time to realize it. I would recommend Jim and Jeff (and everyone else who helped me) without hesitation. They’re terrific!
