Who can be liable for my boating accident damages?

Why Won't Any Lawyer Take My Case

A boat operator, passenger, boat owner, manufacturer, or rental company could have acted negligently, and you became injured. As a result, you are entitled to damages. Recoverable costs may include the reasonable value of your medical bills, your lost earnings and lost earning capacity, and pain and suffering.

Some examples of the parties that might be held responsible for boating accidents include:

  • the boat operator
  • a passenger who acted in a reckless manner
  • the owner of the boat
  • the manufacturer of the boat
  • the rental company
