The most common cause of non-fatal boating accident injury is a collision with another boat or object in the water. Reckless or negligent driving or boating while intoxicated also result in collisions. Fires and explosions due to equipment malfunctions lead to flooding and sinking of boats resulting in the serious injury and often death of crew and passengers. If a death occurs or you are a victim of serious injury, consulting a boating accident attorney immediately is necessary to protect your legal rights. As with any personal injury case, statutesĀ of limitation set the time frame for reporting a boating injury and filing a claim to recover damages. Fatalities most often occur when someone falls overboard or the boat capsizes. If the victim is not able to swim or is not wearing a life jacket, they may drown. And when the accident happens in icy water, hypothermia may be an added factor contributing to serious injury or death.

Below are other examples of boating accident cases our firm has handled:

  • Swimmers hit by boats
  • Collisions between two boats
  • Jet Skis and personal water crafts (PWC) hit by boats
  • Waterskiing accidents

When we represent you in boating accident cases, we provide you the personal, one-on-one attention you deserve. Your case will not be passed around from one attorney to the next or to an inexperienced paralegal. Your case will be handled by an experienced attorney who will know you by your name, not your file number. Our firm initially begins assembling the details and facts of your case. We will carefully investigate the situation and bring in experts in the field of boating. We will also bring in medical professionals to help us understand the extent of the injuries involved. All of these steps are taken to ensure that we have the facts to build a strong case.
