As experienced personal injury trial lawyers we will prepare your case from beginning to end and make sure you get the best settlement or verdict at trial.
Most if not all boating accidents are preventable. Boating crashes are often the result of alcohol, not understanding how to navigate in a waterway (understanding the rules of the road), inattention, overcrowding of rivers and lakes, reckless driving of the boat or other watercraft such as Jetskis and Sea Doos. By not maintaining a boat, boat operators and their passengers can be placed in great peril especially at night or bad weather. Passenger drowning after falling overboard or drifting off in rapid currents when let out of the vessel in dangerous conditions can also be actionable.
