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.
