Hurt on a boat? Let us help

The season is upon us once again -- that time of year when Pennsylvanians shake off the winter blahs and climb aboard boats for a bit of R&R on the lakes and rivers around the state.

It's a lot of fun to go boating, but an accident or injury can mar more than the afternoon outing. Those injured in a wreck with another boat or collision with an underground object or a dock can get tossed out of the boat and drown. And while it is mandated that children wear life jackets, few adults do, even when they are non-swimmers.

It's important to remember that there are rules to obey on the waterways just as there are on the roads. One of those primary rules is that boating and alcohol are a lethal mix. If you are piloting a boat or personal watercraft like a jet ski, you should not be drinking alcoholic beverages. Not only can you get arrested and ticketed for DWI, you could get hurt or hurt others.

Those who have been injured on a boat due to the negligence of the one at the helm have a right to seek justice even if that person never has to answer to any criminal charges. Injuries from boating can range from minor to catastrophic, and medical bills can quickly mount.

We can help you pursue legal remedies through the civil court system. Our attorneys are experienced in dealing with all types of personal injury cases. We are always willing to enter into settlement negotiations, while remaining prepared to litigate your case in front of a judge or jury.
