Boat Accidents & Jet Ski Accidents
Boat Accident and Jet Ski Accident Lawyers in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, and navigable waterways.
Our attorneys can advise you of the essential steps to file, pursue, and litigate a claim for injuries or death arising from a boating accident. The laws can greatly vary depending on the state the accident occurred in, and whether the accident occurred on an inland lake or navigable water. Whether the accident occurred on a recreational boat, jet ski, or commercial vessel, our Attorneys understand the laws and will aggressively work to help you receive compensation.
You may be able to obtain compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. You can focus on your healing and recovery while our attorneys determine the amount or type of compensation you may be owed, the party or parties which may be legally responsible for your injuries, and determine the best course of action to your claim. Your claim will be thoroughly investigated for supporting evidence. Negligence, breach of duty, and reckless operation are some of the common lawsuits in boating and jet ski accidents.
Jet ski claims can be more complex than other personal injury cases as they may be subject to limited liability and prohibited from filing lawsuits against certain defendants. Signed waivers can also complicate and injured person’s ability to file a claim. However, a signed waiver does not always guarantee that an injured victim cannot receive reimbursement. The waiver is signed with the expectation that the company will fulfill its duty of care to provide safe riding environment and equipment, and if the company fails to do so, a waiver will not necessarily stand. Companies are also required to provide riders with adequate pre-rental and pre-ride safety instructions as required by law.
