As an experienced Buffalo Boat Accident Attorney, I often receive phone calls from people who are injured in boating accidents in Western New York. Frequently, it’s passengers in boats calling to see if there’s a potential case due to an injury they sustained due to the operation of the boat by the driver. Sometimes drinking is involved. As you know, seat belts are not available for boating passengers, so injuries can be more substantial in these types of cases.
If you’re a passenger injured in a boating accident, you do have a potential claim for your injuries, and you can look to the driver, and the insurance company of that boat for compensation regarding your injuries. If you were injured as a passenger on a boat, I recommend that you call an attorney who is well versed in boating accident law to help you right away. Time is of the essence in these types of accidents, and working with an attorney who has handled these types of cases makes all the difference when it comes to receiving the compensation you deserve.
