Navigating The Legal Aftermath Of A Boating Accident
Boating is a wonderful way to spend time outdoors with loved ones, taking in nature and engaging in other activities like fishing, swimming and tubing. When something goes wrong, however, the consequences can be devastating. Boating accidents kill more than 600 people annually nationwide, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. Thousands more suffer serious, life-altering injuries from all manner of boating accidents.
Dealing with the legal aftermath of this kind of accident can be challenging. You need an experienced personal injury lawyer who will invest the time and effort to conduct a thorough investigation and hold all the responsible parties accountable.

How Boating Accidents Happen
While the general perception is that boats are safer than automobiles, that isn’t always the case. Accidents on the water can happen for a vast array of reasons, including:
- Faulty, malfunctioning or missing equipment
- Operating while intoxicated
- Operator inattention
- Fires or explosions
- Falls into the water
- Collisions with other boats, docks, wharfs, rocks or other objects
We handle all of these accidents and more, whether they happened on New Jersey lakes, rivers or the Atlantic Ocean – including Barnegat Bay and Barnegat Inlet.
