Boating Accident Attorneys In Oakland

Our boat accident lawyer has helped people recover compensation for all types of boating accidents, including those involving:

  • Recreational accidents — All water sports involve risks, but failure to follow safety precautions, navigational, and nautical rules can have severe consequences. We represent people who have been injured by boaters while waterskiing, wakeboarding, tubing or swimming. Whether you were injured by a propeller while swimming or knocked unconscious by a boater while waterskiing, we can help.
  • Collisions — Nautical negligence can result in collisions that cause severe injuries. We’ve represented clients who were injured when sailors or boaters ran into other watercraft or docks and piers. We have represented clients who were below deck when their boat was hit by another.
  • Explosions and fires — When a boat or ship is not properly maintained, explosions and fires that cause serious personal injury and wrongful death can be the result.
  • Drunk boating accidents — Sadly, alcohol-related boating accidents are common. When a boater drinks to excess and injures another, he or she can be sued for this aggravated negligence. We can pursue punitive damages as well as compensation for injury, lost wages, pain and suffering and other expenses.
