South Carolina provides numerous opportunities to get out onto the water. However, a fun day out on the water can turn into a dangerous situation resulting in injuries. Injuries can result from reckless operation of a watercraft or operating a watercraft while under the influence. If an individual gets hurt on a boat or on the waterway due to a boat operator's negligence, the boat operator may be liable for the injuries the individual incurred.
