You Deserve Full And Fair Compensation After A Boating Accident

Depending on the specifics of the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and benefits, pain and suffering, the personal loss of a loved one, the deceased's future income and benefits, and funeral expenses. You will need tough, skilled attorneys to pursue and obtain the full amount on your behalf.

A boating accident can be caused by issues such as:

  • Impaired boaters (under the influence)
  • Distracted boaters
  • Speeding or boating recklessly
  • Work boating accidents and faulty safety procedures

We will investigate the accident that caused your injuries. In some cases, there are police reports that we can obtain and review. This makes it easy for us to interview witnesses and get their statements.

If a major corporation is involved, then it is possible that the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency will also be part of the case. We have worked on tugboat accident cases in which the TWRA did a significant amount of research that was helpful to our lawsuit.
