Boating accidents can take the fun out of a day on the water

Heading out on the lake is something that should be a fun experience. You should be able to get some energy out or relax. You shouldn’t have to worry about a boating accident occurring that results in you being injured. Sadly, some people who only want to enjoy a day on the water end up facing catastrophic injuries. Those injuries can often be life altering.

We know that catastrophic injuries can be devastating physically, emotionally and financially. Learning how to live with the physical effects is only the beginning of the story. You have to figure out how you are going to pay for medical bills and other care that is necessary. You also have to figure out how you will make ends meet if you aren’t able to work like you did before the accident. Making modifications to your home or vehicle is a consideration for some people who suffer from catastrophic injuries of the brain or spinal cord.

When we look into your case, we will work to determine the cause of the accident. Was the boater who hit you intoxicated? Was that boater driving in an unsafe manner, such as creating wake in a no-wake zone? This can take some investigation, and we can handle that while you work on getting your life back on track.

If you were injured in a boating accident, you have rights that you might opt to exercise. You can explore your right to seek compensation, which might help you to reduce the focus you place on the financial aspects of the injury so that you can shift that focus to the healing process.
