Our experienced attorneys can guide you through the claims process and help you get the full compensation you need.
Boating Accident Injuries
The injuries you might experience in a boating accident can be unique. Unlike car accidents, for example, boating accident victims can suffer from the effects of near-drownings, which can life-threatening. Although some injuries are a little more universal, you’ll want to be informed of water-related injuries.
If you’ve been involved in a boating accident, you could be suffering from one or more of the following injuries:
Who’s Responsible for Boating Crashes?
Boating injuries can be severe, which comes with hefty medical expenses. But, who’s financially responsible for those costs?
Your lawyer will review your case and help determine who is liable for your damages. Often, the liable party is the boat owner or driver, who might have been inattentive, boating while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or speeding at the time of the accident.
If the driver was boating under the influence, your case could become more complex, as the driver could be facing a criminal trial. In this case, you’ll need to wait until the conclusion of the criminal trial before filing a civil lawsuit for your damages.
What if you were the only person involved in the crash? In these cases, there’s still a chance that you didn’t cause the crash directly. In single-boat accidents, your lawyer can help you determine whether your accident might have been caused by a defective or malfunctioning product.
If a manufacturer knowingly or recklessly let a defective product enter the market, you might have grounds for a lawsuit against the manufacturer. If you’re concerned about the viability of your claim, a knowledgeable attorney in Alabama can answer your questions.
