Can You Recover Compensation For a Boating Accident?
There are numerous factors that contribute to boating accidents, including
inexperienced operation of the water vehicle, careless vehicle operation,
boating under the influence of alcohol, restricted vision, hazardous waters,
and equipment failure. No matter what the cause of your injury, no one
deserves to suffer an injury caused by another person’s actions.
If you have been harmed in an accident on a boat, you deserve to fight
back and recover the compensation you are entitled to.
If you have been involved in any of the following boating accidents, our
injury attorneys can help:
- Falls overboard
- Collision to vessel or structure
- Onboard fire
- Vessel or passenger disappearance
Many of the causes of boating accidents can be attributed to driver negligence,
meaning that the injury that you have suffered is not your fault. Working
to recover damages can help cover your medical expenses, lost wages, pain
and suffering, property damage, emotional distress, and more.
