Boating Accident Lawyer
Were you seriously injured in a boating accident? Was someone else at fault? Call a respected accident lawyer to explore your legal options.
Boat accidents can be devastating and cause severe injuries. It is not uncommon for boat accident victims to endure traumatic brain damage, back injuries, loss of limbs, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other serious injuries. But when another person or party is at fault for the accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
At Monge & Associates, we are committed to helping boat accident survivors like you overcome the odds and get through some of the worst times of their lives. If we are able to take on your case, your boating accident lawyer will do everything possible to get you the justice you deserve.
Below, we go into further detail about some of the parties that could be at fault for your boating accident and how you can expect to be compensated if you win your boat accident claim.
Finding Fault for Boating Accidents
For your boat accident claim to be successful, your lawyer will need to be able to show the court that someone else’s negligence was the cause of your injuries. For some boat accidents, the at-fault party may be clear. But for others, this may not be the case.
For example, let’s say you were on a boat and the driver was intoxicated and crashed. It would be safe to assume that the boat driver who was boating under the influence (BUI) would be at fault for your injuries.
But other times, malfunctions occur that cause the boat to crash or capsize. In this case, boat part manufacturers, boat designers, boat dealers, or other relevant parties could be at fault.
Your lawyer will need to carefully investigate the details of your case to uncover the truth and hold the at-fault party accountable.
Compensation for Boat Accident Survivors
If you were involved in a boating accident, chances are, you have suffered severe injuries. The more serious your injuries, the more ways your life may be affected.
You have the right to be made whole. This means you should be repaid for all of the ways your life has been impacted by the boat accident and your related injuries. This includes both economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages include all of your financial losses. Non-economic damages consist of all of your non-monetary losses. Some of the various losses you could be compensated for in your boating accident claim include:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of income
- Diminished quality of life
- Loss of companionship and love
- Lost future earnings and benefits
- Current and future medical expenses and equipment
- Scarring or disfigurement
- Reputational damage
- Loss of household services
