Charleston Lawyers Handling Boating Accident Claims
Charleston Boating Accident Attorney
Millions of Americans seek a fun, relaxing time on the water each year. Whether it is along the nation’s rivers or lakes, boating accidents can be a reality for a wide range of reasons. If you or a family member has been injured in a boating accident, contact a skilled Charleston personal injury attorney. Many West Virginia cities are on or near a river. Charleston, Huntington, Parkersburg and Logan, for example, actually have rivers running through the city. As a result, we have significant barge or commercial river traffic. The waterways can quickly become overrun with recreational water crafts during the summer months. Whether your accident was a result of drunk driving, speeding, reckless driving or simply because the individual was not properly trained in the operation of a water craft, do not hesitate to contact our firm. We will carefully investigate the accident and develop a unique strategy to recover the full and fair monetary compensation you are owed.
Skilled Representation In All Water Craft Accident Cases
Boating accidents can be devastating if for no other reason than the potential of drowning exists in nearly every accident. Across the state’s waterways, there can be numerous crafts involved in accidents, including:
- Jet Skis
- Jet Ski/boat collisions
- Boat collisions
- Boat/barge collisions
- Barge accidents
Barge operators, in particular, must keep a vigilant watch for the smaller crafts around them. It can be easy to lose sight of a recklessly piloted Jet Ski. Whether a water craft collided with another vehicle, a pier or a floating platform, you need a skilled personal injury attorney on your side.
