As pleasant as a day spent on the water is, accidents can and do happen. There are numerous ways in which someone could get hurt in a boating accident:
If you or a loved one has experienced serious injuries due to the carelessness of a boat owner or operator, you could be entitled to damages. Contact our personal injury firm immediately, as the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Massachusetts is three years from the date of the injury.
Boat owners have certain responsibilities when operating a vessel, so when they fail to adhere to those responsibilities and cause negligent harm to their passengers, the victims have the option to file a personal injury claim. Once an accident occurs, the operator must immediately stop the boat, assist anyone injured, and give their vessel information, address, and name to anyone injured or the owner of any damaged property. When you seek our help for a claim, we will secure the police report, investigate liability, and handle any insurance issues. Our firm will also advise you on the unique regulations that apply to accidents that occur on the water.
If you or a loved one has suffered injuries as the result of a boating accident, you could be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, property damage, and other losses.
