Injured in a Boating Accident?

Dedicated NYC Personal Injury Lawyers Ready to Help

Boating can be a fun activity, great means of transportation, or even a challenging sport. However, boating can also be very dangerous when others on the water don’t exercise the duty of care they should. If you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries due to the negligent or reckless actions of another, you need to ensure that you take the right steps to pursue a valid personal injury claim.

At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., we stand ready to represent people who have been injured in boat accidents. Whether the accident was caused by operator negligence, inattentiveness, intoxication, faulty equipment, or manufacturer negligence, our firm is equipped to handle nearly any claim. When clients come to us, we begin by thoroughly investigating the accident to identify the cause, the liable party, and the most effective legal strategy.

Don’t go without proven legal counsel and guidance during this time. Call The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. at (212) 577-9325.

Representing Boat Accident Injury Victims

Our law firm strives to help injury victims move forward from their accidents. We start by assessing the financial impact and long-term consequences of the boating accident. Then, we will carefully help you craft claim or case that encompasses all your necessary medical costs, lost wages, and other damages.

We represent clients who have been injured in a boating accident involving:

  • Collisions with other boats
  • Mechanical defects
  • Driver inexperience
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Lack of flotation devices
  • Excessive speeding
  • Water skiing accidents
  • Various other incidents

When a boating accident is caused by driver negligence or the negligence of a product manufacturer, they can be held responsible for the harm caused. In many cases, there may be more than one party at fault for a boating accident.

Understanding Admiralty Law

In certain boating accident cases, admiralty law may apply. It is important to work with an attorney who understands both the personal injury component of a case, as well as the admiralty law component, when applicable.

Admiralty law jurisdiction may apply if the boating accident occurred on navigable waters (which generally includes waters used for commerce, trade, or travel.) On the other hand, state law generally applies when accidents occur on any lakes throughout New York. Our legal team is well-versed in these laws and can use our insight to strengthen your case.
