Boating Accidents Archives

Boating accidents sometimes demand compensation claims

Spending a day on the river or the lake is something that can be fun, but without proper safety precautions, that day of fun can turn devastating. Accidents on the water, such as those involving boats or personal watercraft, can lead to catastrophic injuries that require intensive medical care. We know that you never expected your day of fun in the sun to end in an accident. We can help you learn how to seek compensation.

Are you prepared for injuries while fishing?

We've talked about boating accidents -- those that involve a collision between water vessels or between a boat and something in or near the water -- before. Individuals in boats can experience other types of injuries, though, especially when spending time fishing. Though fishing injuries are part of the process -- and every long-time fisherman has dealt with a hook to the thumb -- they can also develop into serious issues.

Prioritize boating safety to prevent accidents

National Safe Boating Week is May 21-27, 2016, serving as a reminder to all recreational boaters to take precautions to prevent boating accidents this summer. People who plan to operate watercraft or ride along as a passenger should be aware of basic important safety measures that could mean the difference between life and death. 

Can you sue for a frightening cruise ship experience?

Certainly, the passengers who were aboard the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Anthem of the Seas on February 7 when it sailed into near hurricane-level conditions on its way to Barbados have been through a traumatic experience. But whether the fear and anxiety experienced by the passengers, or the four reported minor injuries arising from the extreme weather conditions, are enough to justify a lawsuit against the cruise line remains to be seen.
