How our lawyers can help you
If you have suffered a serious injury during a boating accident, we may be able to help you collect compensation beyond what insurance claims may provide. However, in order to obtain such financial compensation, you often need to prove that your boating accident was caused by someone else’s negligent actions or inaction.
Proving that negligence occurred can be difficult, especially if the boater who caused your injury denies doing anything wrong. The at-fault party’s insurance company can also often be difficult to deal with in many situations.
This is why it’s critical that you have an experienced Maryland boating accident attorney handling your case. Your lawyer can gather evidence in support of your injury claim or lawsuit. They can negotiate a settlement offer with the at-fault party’s insurance company. And if the insurance company refuses to cooperate, your attorney can file a boating accident lawsuit on your behalf.
Types of boating accident injuries
To become eligible for a personal injury lawsuit, the injured victims must have suffered a fatality or suffered from a severe injury including:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Broken bones
- Loss of limb
- Significant head injury
Types of boat accident cases our lawyers handle
Given the nature of boating, injuries may be caused by a number of scenarios; however, the most recurring injuries are caused by the boat operator acting negligently.
