Catastrophic Injury

Boating Accidents

People operating boats and other watercraft of any kind often do so much closer to each other than drivers of motor vehicles do – and without any particular lanes or areas of travel. While aircraft operate at different altitudes depending upon the direction they are traveling to avoid collisions, there are no such controls in the water. In addition, the fact you have operated a car does not prepare you for operating a boat or other watercraft. Nevertheless, year after year after year people operate watercraft recklessly as well as using poor judgment when pulling water skiers or people on inner tubes. They will use over-powered boats, and tow ropes which are not strong enough either for the boats, skiers or tubers. Tragically, the potential for drowning or being maimed by propellers is high, and the losses are often catastrophic. We are very familiar with these serious personal injury cases and know exactly how to proceed to hold people who cause these accidents responsible for their actions. In addition, evaluating the loss and presenting it to an insurance company that knows we are experienced and willing to take the case to a jury trial, puts us in the best position to resolve the case without a trial and help our clients move ahead with their lives.
