The most common types of injuries I see as a Buffalo Boat Accident Attorney in watercraft accidents are contusions, bumps, and bruises, but also broken bones, head injuries, and traumatic brain injuries because when the impact or collisions occurs, people typically get thrown about the boat quite seriously. There are not the same protections in a watercraft that there are in vehicles, so there are a lot of impact accidents as opposed to a car accident where there is a lot of whipping, and cervical acceleration/deceleration because you are held tightly in the seat by the seat belt. I advise clients as a Buffalo Boat Accident Attorney that watercraft accidents can be a much more severe type of impact accident.
