Detroit Swimmer Collision Lawyers
Taking a swim in the lake on a hot day is a popular pastime during the summer months. Many lakes have “swim only” areas where boats are banned, giving swimmers a safe area to recreate. Sometimes, however, a reckless boater may disregard the rules or a swimmer may find him or herself outside of the protected area and in harm’s way.
If you or someone you love has been hurt in a collision with a boat or other watercraft while swimming, don’t hesitate to contact the Detroit swimmer collision lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C., today at (866) 644-6587.
Swimmer Collision Risks
Swimmers can be difficult to see in the water, especially when a boater is not actively looking for them. Boaters and other watercraft operators have a responsibility to watch for people in the water and to avoid the areas where people may be swimming. Sometimes swimmers may be far from shore, so boaters must watch for swimmers in even the most remote parts of the water. They should also exercise caution around other watercraft where water skiers, wake boarders, or others may be off of the boat and in the water.
