Alcohol and water don’t mix

While a few boating accidents are caused by vehicle malfunction, most are the result of driver negligence — in other words, the captain’s actions or inaction led to the accident. The California Department of Boating and Waterways (DPW) estimates that alcohol is involved in approximately 25% of all motorboat-related fatalities. In fact, a driver with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .10% or greater is ten times more likely to cause an accident than a sober driver. Even at a BAC of .035%, a boater’s ability to operate a watercraft is impaired.

James McKiernan Lawyers houses a team of highly qualified accident attorneys in Santa Barbara who can evaluate your case and decide if driver intoxication led to the crash.
