Determining Liability in Recreational Boating Accidents

Since 1982, the personal injury attorneys at our law firm have proven fault in a wide range of watercraft accidents, such as:

  • Jet Ski accidents
  • Fishing boat accidents
  • Water ski accidents
  • Personal watercraft collisions

We begin our approach gathering as many facts as possible to determine the cause of the serious boating accident. The attorneys at our firm evaluate property damage to help us reconstruct how the accident occurred. We also interview eyewitnesses to substantiate any factors leading to the accident, such as boating under the influence of alcohol, failure to provide personal flotation devices, reckless driving or overcrowding the boat.

Our law firm is prepared to hold property owners accountable for negligent actions leading to serious boating or Jet Ski crashes. We will seek maximum compensation covering your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and punitive damages, when appropriate.

Handling Product Liability Litigation

The personal injury attorneys at our law firm will evaluate product recall reports to understand if the boating or Sea-Doo accident was related to a product defect. We enlist experts, such as engineers, who can help us determine if any manufacturing errors led to the catastrophic or wrongful death accident. We will work to put together a persuasive argument to help you obtain fair compensation.
