Personal Injury from a Boating Accident

Involvement in a boating accident can be both traumatizing and debilitating. Any accident, whether it involves a boat, jet ski, or other watercraft, threatens the physical and emotional health of those who are involved. If you have been involved in this type of accident, you may be left with many questions. Could this disaster have been prevented? How can I recover from this trauma? Will my insurance cover the medical costs required for recovery?

Procuring legal counsel from an experienced and understanding attorney can help to ease the stress and pain of navigating the road to recovery after a boating injury. Whether you were the operator of the watercraft involved in the accident or a passenger who experienced personal injury during the event, there is legal counsel available that can offer you hope.

Protecting Your Rights

There are many laws and regulations in place to help protect boaters. These laws come from state and federal authorities and regulate common safety concerns including the wearing of life jackets and personal flotation devices, water navigation, and operating a watercraft while under the influence. Many of these factors often come into play in an accident and may affect the outcome of legal proceedings that stem from a watercraft accident.

A serious accident can affect more than your health – it can threaten your ability to work, damage valuable personal property, and more.

Working with the right attorney will guide you to the course of legal action that is best for your personal situation.
