Enjoying time along one of Alabama many waterways is an experience that should always be relaxing and enjoyable. However, it's an unfortunate fact of life that boating deaths can and do occur. As a result of each of these boating deaths, complex and costly lawsuits can ensue. For example, one recent case from 2012 has made recent headlines.
The 2012 incident happened when a university student drowned because he fell from the Alabama based "Bama Belle", a riverboat that runs along the Black Warrior River. He tumbled from the boat during a sorority party that was being held there. The family of the young man who died is now asking for $10 million to compensate them for their loss.
