Although many boaters practice safety while on the coastlines and waterways, accidents do happen. Hundreds of people each year are hospitalized due to boating accidents and an estimated 200 die from fatal injuries. If you or a loved one was injured in a boating accident due to negligence, you may be entitled to remuneration and accident benefits.
Our personal injury lawyers will investigate and document all circumstances resulting in the boating accident. We understand the struggles of dealing with the complex legal process and will help ensure you receive your rightful compensation.
Boating Accident Claims
At Maruszki Law, our personal injury lawyers advocate on behalf of injured clients involved in boating accident cases. These cases can include jet skis, fishing, yachting, sailing, cruisers, scuba diving, pleasure boating, water skiing, swimming, and other forms of water craft. Boating accidents may result from bad weather conditions such as strong winds and heavy rain may make operating a boat difficult, especially unexpected sudden weather changes.
Boating safety regulations include:
- Traffic/signal lights
- Right of way
- Adhering to signs and speed limits.
Boating accident claims can be complex as they not only deal with marine law, but also motor vehicle law.
