Negligence in Boating
Most boat accidents may be attributable to operator negligence. Oftentimes alcohol is a major factor, but occasionally mere inattention may lead to a catastrophic accident. If you or a loved one has sustained a serious injury from a reckless boater, you may be entitled to compensation for your injury, pain and suffering, and other damages. Our experienced La Crosse personal injury attorneys will fight to make sure you receive maximum compensation for your injuries.
Sometimes, accidents can be attributed to equipment malfunction. In these cases, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer of the faulty equipment. Our diligent attorneys will help nail down the cause or causes of the accident and hold all parties at fault responsible.
Do Not Delay in Seeking Legal Help
Evidence from waterway accidents disappears very quickly. Unlike roadway accidents, there will not be physical evidence such as skid marks left behind, nor will it be possible to reconstruct the accident like the highway patrol does. It is important that you seek legal representation as soon as possible in order to gather evidence such as eyewitness statements before memories become cloudy.
Experienced Federal Law Attorneys
If you have been involved in an accident on a major river such as the Mississippi, federal maritime law will likely apply to your claims. Federal law operates differently than state law, and it is of the utmost importance that you hire an attorney who knows both state and federal law. At our La Crosse law firm, we have the knowledge and experience to file both state and federal claims.
