BOATING ACCIDENTS

Unfortunately, due to the number of boats and personal watercraft on our lakes and rivers, the number of boating accidents is greatly increasing.  The use of alcohol while operating watercraft only exacerbates the situation.  Further, a number of factors greatly increase the severity of the resulting injuries.   Most watercraft accidents are head-on or side-on (unlike automobile accidents that are primarily rear-enders).  A lack of seatbelts increases the resulting injury.  Collisions involving Waverunners or Jet Skis frequently involve a direct impact to the persons operating them.

Many of these accidents are out-of-state.  As appropriate, we will hire attorneys in that state to handle the case or work with us.  These local attorneys are always members of the American Trial Lawyers Association.  There are no additional fees to the client.
