Scuba Diving Accidents
California provides some of the best scuba diving experiences the world has to offer. Every year, thousands of coastal residents and visitors from around the world come to the region to receive scuba certification and use dive shops and boating services to enjoy their unique pastime. Even though most dive schools and outfitters pass certification requirements, there are still serious injuries and deaths that occur on boat decks and under the surface of the ocean every year as a result of the negligence of a dive instructor, boat operator or dive shop.

Recreational Diving Accidents
Frequently, diving accidents are preventable if the diving company had exercised greater caution. Though you are responsible for your own actions while diving, and any resulting injuries, there are situations in which the diving company may be liable.
Examples of a diving company acting negligently may include:
- Poorly maintained equipment
- Failing to identify and avoid unsafe water conditions
- Failing to properly train the diver and/or their instructors
