Boating accidents that result in serious and fatal injuries are commonly caused by negligence such as:
- Operator or captain inexperience
- Operator or captain distraction
- Alcohol or drug impairment
- Excessive speed
It can be difficult to prove the true cause of a boating crash, leading victims to waive important rights by accepting settlements from insurers before talking to an attorney.
Attempting to face an insurance company on your own can be a huge mistake after any injury involving negligence. The insurance company is not on your side.
Our experienced legal team knows how to study an accident and prove the cause of it. We will work with the insurance company to achieve a just and expedient settlement for you. As aggressive trial attorneys, we will also be prepared to fight for your best interests in court if necessary.
