One of Virginias Leading Law Families

Boat Accident Attorneys

Representing Watercraft Accident Victims Throughout Virginia

With numerous bodies of water throughout the state as well as extensive stretches of coastline, Virginia is an ideal destination for both residents and tourists to enjoy boating and watercraft activities. Unfortunately, recreational boating accidents account for the second largest transportation-related cause of injury in the United States after car accidents.

Boating accidents can present unique challenges, as they often lack witnesses and evidence because vessels may sink. Our lawyers have decades of experience in handling these complex boating accident claims. If you or a loved one have been injured in a boating accident, please call us or fill out our no cost, no obligation case review form to schedule a free consultation.

Representing Watercraft Accident Victims Throughout Virginia

With numerous bodies of water throughout the state such as Smith Mountain Lake, Leesville Lake, Lake Anna, Claytor Lake as well as an extensive stretch of coastline, Virginia is an ideal destination for both residents and tourists to enjoy boating and watercraft activities. Unfortunately, large watercraft moving at high speeds next to each other in deep water brings with it a variety of risks. Occupants can suffer very serious injury or death while fishing, water skiing, jets kiing, or simply enjoying the act of riding as a passenger on a boat.

How Can a Boating Attorney Help?

Victims of boating accidents may be able to file a lawsuit to recover compensation for personal injuries and/or property damage. To collect damages, the plaintiff’s injuries must be directly linked to the boating accident. The party responsible for a boating accident injury will vary by case.  In most instances, the operator of the vessel may be held liable for negligence, but may depend on the individual’s status on the vessel as well as the location of the accident.

Our Virginia personal injury lawyers have extensive experience representing clients who have been involved in boating accidents. We are well-prepared to help you pursue the recovery of damages from responsible parties so that you can have peace of mind while you focus on recovering and returning to your normal life.
