Personal Injury on a Boat
In the following educational legal video, dedicated Hamburg boat accident lawyer Lisa A. Poch explains what’s important to know about boating injuries.
With the weather finally breaking, people are out and about taking advantage of our great lakes, and having fun on their boats – or their friends’ boats. Unfortunately, people are sometimes injured in boating accidents. When that happens, they want to know, “Can I bring a claim? Who’s that claim against?” The answer is, “Yes, you can.” In the past, we’ve had clients who have been seriously injured on boats when a driver was intoxicated while operating that boat or someone was negligent in the way they operated their boat – perhaps because they were not adequately trained or skilled in operating that particular vessel. You do have a claim for negligence against the owner and/or the operator of a boat when you’re injured on it.
