FAQ

Understanding Your Boating or Watercraft Claim

Victims of boating and watercraft accidents may be able to recover damages for personal injuries and/or property damage caused by the negligence of another party. Because these accidents are often complex legal matters with multiple parties and insurance carriers involved, it is important to hire a firm with extensive experience and understanding of Virginia’s personal injury and watercraft laws.

The attorneys at Trost Law Group have over three decades of experience in successfully handling boating accident and personal injury cases throughout the state of Virginia. We are dedicated to protecting our clients rights and to help them obtain the maximum compensation for their injuries.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE A CASE?
If you have an injury that effects your ability to live your normal life you should contact our office to protect your rights. Our attorneys have a strong record of success and will review your case to see if we can prove your accident and injuries were caused by the other party’s negligence.
WHEN SHOULD I CALL ABOUT MY CASE?
In most cases, it is in your best interests to start as soon as possible with the collection of evidence and the identification of potential witnesses. In Virginia, the time limit to take legal action against the party responsible for causing the injury is two years. This is referred to as the “statute of limitations”. If you don’t file a lawsuit against those at fault for the accident before the end of that period, you will forever lose your right to file a lawsuit against those responsible for the incident.
DO YOU CHARGE UPFRONT FEES TO HANDLE MY CASE?
Our firm does not charge any up front fees for representation in Boating, Watercraft or Personal Injury cases. We offer a free, no obligation case review to evaluate your claim. Once representation begins we work on a contingency basis, which means we don’t get paid unless you do.
WILL YOU TELL ME HOW MUCH MY CASE IS WORTH?
Yes, at your initial free case review, our lawyers will use their unrivaled knowledge and decades of experience in Virginia Boating Accident & Personal Injury Law to evaluate your claim. We will pursue every option to help you maximize the compensation you will need to recover from your injury and losses.
