Boating Under the Influence

Hey there. Andrew Kim—your local personal injury and accident attorney—here to talk to you about BUI.

What is BUI? BUI stands for “boating under the influence.”

These days of the summer, when it’s nice and hot and warm, a lot of people go out on their boats or personal watercraft here on Lake Washington, or Lake Sammamish, maybe on Lake Chelan, or Moses Lake. Now, hand-in-hand with boating there is usually some alcohol or beer—which is fine—but, if the operator of that vessel, or boat, or para-watercraft has too much to drink that could put the passengers at risk, or could put other swimmers or other boaters at risk. Unfortunately, we see these cases where there is an accident and there are injuries involved.

A BUI is very similar to a DUI like in a car accident, but they are also different. These sort of cases need special attention and can be complicated. So, if you have any questions about that, if you were injured in a boating accident, please give us a call at (425) 289-1990 or you can contact our website at www.wainjurylaw.com
