Jet Ski Injury | Boating Accident
Settlement for a woman severely injured while being towed on an inner-tube by a jet ski on Lake Oconee near Atlanta, Georgia. The operator of the jet ski went too close to shore, causing the Plaintiff to hit rocks and hydroplane into a tree. Plaintiff had to be life-flighted and suffered a fracture of her ribs and forearm. At the time Boughter Sinak, LLC was retained, the Defendant's insurer had only offered $125,000.00. Boughter Sinak, LLC immediately retained an independent medical expert and a vocational economic expert to assess the Plaintiff's damages. The case went to pre-suit mediation and the Defendant offered $300,000.00, which Boughter Sinak, LLC advised the Plaintiff reject. Once suit was filed in federal court in Atlanta, the insurer immediately increased its offer to $360,000.00, at which time the Plaintiff accepted to avoid protracted litigation.
