We Represent Injured Boat Passengers And Swimmers
Injuries caused by boats, Jet Skis and other types of personal watercraft may be the result of:
- Operating the boat under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
- Collisions with other boats.
- Running aground.
- Hitting a dock or pier.
- Failure to keep life jackets or safety equipment on board.
- Falling overboard.
- Contact with a propeller.
- Boat defects.
Broken bones, back and neck injuries, and spinal cord injuries are common in boating accidents. Brain injuries can occur if victims hit their head or sustain a hard blow to the body. Brain damage caused by oxygen deficiency is often the result of drowning.
We will investigate the boat accident to determine who is liable for your losses. When another party’s negligence causes injury or death, we hold that party accountable.
