Boat Accidents

WE ARE AVID BOATERS OURSELVES!

IF YOU WERE INJURED IN A BOATING ACCIDENT, WE CAN GET YOU FIXED AND BACK ON THE WATER!

We love being on the water, but the water is an extremely dangerous place. You do not need a license to operate a boat. You can even drink alcoholic beverages while operating a boat, so long as you are not over the legal limit of .08. This mix of inexperience and alcohol can prove deadly.

Between 2012 and 2016, there were 229 recreational boating fatalities. Of those 56 involved alcohol and 71 there was no alcohol testing conducted. 159 of those decedents were not wearing life jackets at the time of the accident.

A lot of boat accidents we see occur on jet skis. They are extremely fast and less maneuverable than one might think. People who haven’t been out on the water much rent them and cause a lot of trouble.

If you’ve been hurt by a boat or on a boat, we may be able to help you get what you deserve.
