Boat Defects Attorney
While not extremely common, boat defects can be dangerous and lead to devastating accidents, serious injuries, and loss of life. Typically, boat defects occur as the result of error, negligence, or misjudgment on the part of the boat manufacturer or parts producer, as it is their duty to make sure that boats and all of their components are safe and will not put boat owners or passenger in any danger. This means that, in the event a boat is not manufactured or designed properly, it could result in innocent parties suffering serious injuries or loss of life. When this happens, the manufacturer of the defective part may be held legally liable for these injuries and any related damages or expenses. Attorneys at Rad Law Firm have successfully handled a number of boating accident causes that took place as a result of defective boat parts.

Why Boat Defects Are Dangerous
Boat defects fall into two categories: safety defects that create a substantial risk of injury and failure to adhere to comply with federal standards. In addition, the federal standards as they are now are very limited when compared with safety standards for cars. Unfortunately, boat manufacturers are far less likely to institute boat recalls. While there are numerous parts of any given boat that can be defective, some of the most common defects include the following:
- Uncontrollable acceleration defects
- Loss of steering control
- Inability to slow or reverse the boat
- Fuel leakages
- Electrical malfunctions
- Engine component defects
- Fuel pump cracks
- Radar defects
- Navigational equipment defects
- Railing defects
- Ship conveyor belt defects
- Throttle defects
While it is true that many boating accidents can be attributed to operator inexperience and other outside factors, product or design defects are another factor that can lead to dangerous accidents, injuries, and death.
