Legal Help for the Injured from Our Columbia Injury Attorney
There are many causes for these accidents, and there are many different
injuries that can be sustained by victims. One of the more serious injuries
sustained in water-related accidents is brain hypoxia. It is caused by
a lack of oxygen to the brain and can result in memory loss, difficulty
learning in the future, coma, and even death in the more serious cases.
There is no training or licensing requirements to operate a boat in South
Carolina, and as a result inexperienced operators may become distracted
or inebriated while out on the water. Negligent or drunk boat operation
in South Carolina is a criminal offense, and those injured in severe boating
accidents truly are victims.
