Illinois Boating Accident Lawyers
Whether fishing with friends or taking your family for a day on the water, boating is a fun recreational activity. However, taking the boat out also presents a lot of danger which can sometimes lead to serious accidents and injuries...particularly when too many drinks or not enough PFDs are involved.
Federal, state and international maritime laws each have their own set of regulations dealing with boat accidents. Insurance issues are often complicated to sort out. As such, receiving compensation after a boating accident can be a complicated process.
Boating collisions and personal watercraft collisions — including accidents involving fishing boats, house boats, pontoons and speed boats — can cause serious personal injuries or even death. Boating injury victims have the right to receive compensation under the law when those injuries are the result of negligent or careless operation of a boat.
