Our attorneys know how to handle the complexities of boating accidents
Many types of personal injury accidents can happen on the water. Some of the types of incidents we handle include:
- Burns or head injuries resulting from a boating accident
- Personal watercraft accidents
- Jet ski or waverunner accidents
- Canoe accidents
- Powerboat accidents
- Water-skiing accidents
- Boating accidents involving alcohol
- Drowning as a result of a swimming or boating accident
There are several ways negligence can come into play in a boating or swimming accident. Boating under the influence (BUI) is just as dangerous as driving under the influence on land. You or your loved one may have been injured due to negligence on the part of a lifeguard or property owner or manager. Sometimes, a manufacturer is at fault due to defects in a boat or boating equipment.
But getting the compensation you deserve isn't easy. Evidence disappears quickly on the water. Negligent parties often fight hard to protect their assets. To an insurance company, you're not a person in need of help; you're just exposure to their bottom line. That's where we come in.
