Boating accidents can cause severe injuries which may take extensive medical treatment and years of recovery time to fully heal. Some cases may tragically involve injuries from which the victim can never recover. If you or a loved one has been injured in a boating accident, a lawyer can help you fight for the compensation and damages you need. Your attorney can investigate your case to determine the cause of the accident and injuries, establish liability, and present a compelling claim on your behalf.
Boating accidents may occur as a result of driver inattention or inexperience, speeding or other negligence, or operating the watercraft under the influence of drugs or alcohol. In some cases, a defective or poorly maintained boat may be to blame. Your case may involve filing a claim against the driver of your boat or another boat, the company or government agency responsible for leasing the boat, a school or resort or any other responsible party. You have the right to pursue compensation and damages for your medical expenses, future medical care, lost income, pain and suffering and more.
