Tennessee has many lakes and rivers, and numerous Memphis and Tennessee residents participate in waterfront activities on boats for work and pleasure. Since many Tennesseans work on ships and spend their time on boats, it is important for ship owners and boaters to exercise safety and caution on the water to avoid causing accidents and injuries.Â The lawyers at Nahon, Saharovich, and Trotz (â€śNST Lawâ€ť) protect victims injured in boating and maritime accidents in Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi.
Ship crews and fishermen often work long hours and perform stressful and strenuous tasks, such as heavy lifting.Â Ship workers can be injured as a result of incidents with co-workers, slipping and falling, and handling defective equipment.Â Boats can crash into other boats or structures as well.Â In Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi, the Jones Act protects injured maritime workers from injuries suffered as a result of the negligence of others.Â This act requires each employer to provide a safe workplace and environment for its employees.Â Also, under the Jones Act, an injured employee can recover damages by showing his or her employerâ€™s negligence was one cause of the injury even if it was not the only cause.

Boating is an activity and recreational sport enjoyed by many during the summer months. However, some people drive boats carelessly and operate boating equipment after they have been drinking alcohol, causing potentially catastrophic injuries to others on the water.Â Recently, in Connecticut, a case involving a drunken boating accident that resulted in the death two people and injury of two others has settled. A person took his boat out on a lake after drinking alcohol at a nearby bar.Â Â He had a BAC over the legal limit and crashed into another boat, injuring the other boaters. The victims and their families sued the bar for knowingly serving the driver of the boat alcohol when he was intoxicated, and a settlement with the bar was reached.
