Boating Accidents

Boating accidents can happen on the water, a dock, boat slip, jet ski, and even on shore near a body of water.


Most boating accidents are the result of someone else's negligence. Whether you are on board for recreation, transporting goods or passengers for work as a part of your employment, operating a rental vessel, or at a dockside business, the risk is present for accident and injury. On board accidents may include crashes, sinking, explosions, or marine equipment malfunctions and can lead to broken bones, lacerations, burns, hypothermia and even drowning. Dockside or on shore near water can pose other hazards such as slipping on wet surfaces, falling from swimming platforms or inflatable water toys, poor landing of jet skis onto beaches and even incidents of tow ropes breaking loose while paragliding from the back of a boat causing lifelong trauma, injury and death.  If you've suffered an injury as the result of a accident involving any kind of watercraft you need an attorney with the experience to guide you through the legal process and assist you in recovery for your pain and suffering.
