Boating Accidents Our Goal: Winning & Winning Big

Boat Accident Attorneys

National Representation for Victims of Watercraft Accidents

Going boating out on the lake is a family activity that people of all ages can enjoy. There is nothing quite like being able to spend the day boating. Every single state has some type of natural or man-made lake where boaters can go to relax, soak up the sun, do a little water-skiing or simply idle around. When an individual's carelessness, negligence or disregard for the safety of others causes a senseless accident resulting in seriously bodily harm or fatal injuries being caused to another, that individual needs to be held legally and financially liable.

Following a boating accident, a drowning lawyer from The Doan Law Firm, P.C. can help you:

  • Document your claim
  • Gather the evidence necessary to prove liability
  • Pursue legal action

Seeking fair compensation for the pain and suffering you have had to endure at the hands of another is within your rights. Attorney Doan provides legal representation to boating accident victims and their families, regardless of where in the continental U.S. the accident or drowning took place.

To get the help you need, call his firm at once.

Been Injured by a Negligent or Careless Boater?

Boating activities can quickly turn deadly when drugs, alcohol or excessive speed are involved. Boat operators need to be aware of and adhere to the regulations and laws of the area where they choose to go boating. When they fail to exercise caution, ignore rules intended to keep boaters and other visitors to the lake safe, or engage in illegal activities, innocent lives are put at risk. Child drowning accidents are particularly devastating and can quickly turn an enjoyable family outcome into the nightmare of a lifetime. In some states boating while intoxicated is as serious as driving while intoxicated.

Under certain circumstances criminal charges can be filled against individuals whose reckless behavior on a lake leaves another person suffering from serious or life-threatening injuries. Pursuing criminal charges, in addition to the pursuit of financial remuneration, can often give a victim and his or her family a sense of relief that justice is being served. If you have or someone you love has sustained serious injury in a boating accident, Attorney Doan will work with you one-on-one to help you determine the legal action that will best suit your individual case.

When boating accidents leading to drowning deaths or near-drowning, he and his firm will stop at nothing to see that you and your family are compensated fairly. No accident victim or victim's family should have to pay for medical care, therapy, loss of income and other related expenses from an accident caused by another's negligence.

Boat Accidents Caused By Intoxicated Operators

According to the United States Coast Guard, approximately 50 percent of all boating accidents and 31 percent of all boating deaths involve alcohol consumption. In addition, boat drivers with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) above 0.10 percent are 10 times more likely to be killed in a boating accident than drivers with no alcohol in their blood.

Many boating enthusiasts are surprised to learn that alcohol use is more dangerous on the water than on land. The combination of sun and wind tends to dehydrate boat operators and their passengers, making them more vulnerable to the effects of alcohol. Unlike the solid roads automobile operators drive on, water is unpredictable and constantly changing, which requires more attentive concentration when driving a boat.

Because alcohol consumption impairs vision, balance, reaction time, and judgment, boat drivers and passengers under the influence may not be quick enough to compensate for the volatility of the water. This is especially true for inexperienced boaters and those who do not spend much time on the water.

If you have been involved in a boating accident and suspect alcohol may have played a role, let an experienced drowning lawyer at The Doan Law Firm, P.C. evaluate your case for free. Attorney Jimmy Doan will handle your case with respect, care, and compassion while aggressively fighting to hold the responsible party accountable.
