With the many beautiful rivers in Sacramento, it is no surprise that boating is a very popular recreation activity. However, a fun day on the water can quickly turn into tragedy when a reckless or an inexperienced, intoxicated or inattentive boater causes an accident. Injuries can occur from collisions between boats or between a boat and dock or other structures. Propeller accidents are another frequent source of injury. Additionally, serious injury and drowning can result from a person falling overboard.

Holding the Right Parties Accountable

If another person caused your boat accident, you shouldn't have to shoulder the burden of medical bills and lost wages. Our boat accident lawyers will investigate your accident and take the time to understand how your injuries have impacted your quality of life. We will explore all avenues of recovery to ensure you get the compensation you need.

While many boat accident cases are resolved through settlement, we will prepare your case as if it were going to trial. By taking these additional steps at the forefront of your case, we are able to negotiate from a position of strength. However, if your interests are best protected at trial, you can count on us for aggressive representation in the courtroom.
