As your boating accident attorneys, we will work closely with you at each step. Depending on the circumstances of your case, we will:
- Investigate the incident with the help of experts and other professionals
- Determine if another individual or individuals caused the accident
- Look at the operator’s age, experience, whether he or she was impaired or if that individual should have been operating the vehicle in the first place
- Deal with the insurance companies so you don’t have to
- Investigate the watercraft and determine if there were manufacturer defects or other factors that contributed to the accident
- We can determine if the vehicle was improperly maintained or unsafe for use
- If a vessel was rented out or under corporate ownership, we can look into the company’s insurance policy and liability
