A California boat accident over the weekend raises several questions concerning the responsibility of the charity who sponsored the sailing event. As a result of the accident, a 73-year-old man and his 48-year-old son died when the boat they were in capsized off the coast of San Diego. A third passenger was seriously injured.

If you have been injured in a boating accident, it is critical to contact an experienced California boat accident lawyer to investigate the incident and help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

Here, questions have been raised concerning whether the “Heart of Sailing” foundation, a charity that has sailed with thousands of special needs children, was partly to blame for the incident. Initial reports reveal that the boat may have been overloaded, although the charity’s president denies this assertion.

Whenever a serious accident occurs, people are quick to search for answers and place blame. Often an in-depth investigation is needed. Here, whether the boat was in fact overloaded is a critical factor. Other issues include whether negligence occurred in sailing the boat, including preparation and boat maintenance. Whether any boat defects exist must also be investigated.
