Know Your Options After A Boating Accident

Californians enjoy the outdoors, especially fun on the water, but with the rise in popularity of Jet Skis and other personal watercraft in recent years, boating accidents are becoming more common.

Special Conditions On The Water

Just like driving has special rules of the road, waterways have their own rules and regulations that must be followed. Our firm has handled many of these cases, and our attorneys know how to establish fault by proving negligence or carelessness. Our attorneys have successfully represented clients after:

  • Sinkings
  • Slip-and-falls
  • Collisions
  • Disappearances
  • Drownings

Boating accidents occur for many reasons, from boating while intoxicated to illegal or unsupervised operation of a watercraft by a minor. Our personal injury lawyers will be sure to investigate thoroughly so the proper parties are held accountable. For example, as in other vehicle accidents, it is possible for a boating accident to be caused by a manufacturer's defect or improper repair.

Our attorneys will explore every possible scenario, so our clients can be confident that if there are issues with liability or insurance coverage, our firm finds the answer. In some cases, there may be multiple avenues for compensation, and our attorneys will pursue them all to ensure that our clients have a comprehensive claim.
