How Our NYC Boat Accident Attorneys Can Help You

Boating accidents cause severe injuries and sometimes death. You or your loved ones may have significant medical bills and other expenses to deal with. Your injuries may also prevent you from getting back to work anytime soon. To get the best chance of recovering the full measure of damages, it is important to work with an experienced New York City boat crash attorney.

For generations, injured New Yorkers have turned to the law firm of Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff, & Wolff. Our firm focuses on helping people recover their complete compensation after serious boating accidents.

Although most boat and watercraft operators are considerate of others, some boaters are inexperienced or improperly trained. Our lawyers are equipped to handle a variety of boating and watercraft accidents, including:

  • Passenger boat accidents
  • Charter and fishing boat accidents
  • Water skiing and wakeboard accidents
  • Speedboat accidents
  • Cruise ships accidents, including slip-and-fall accidents
  • Jet Ski / WaveRunner accidents

When developing a boating accident case, we conduct a full investigation of the accident and your injuries to determine who is at fault. We will then gather all the evidence of your medical expenses, lost income, and other damages arising from the accident. We will devote all of our efforts to maximizing your financial compensation for your injuries in either settlement negotiations or at trial.

Common Injuries Sustained During NYC Boat Accidents

Most boating accidents occur at the end of the day when the chances of excessive drinking are increased and weather conditions begin to deteriorate.

Most fatalities are caused by the boat capsizing, or a person falling overboard. When a boat capsizes, it is filled with water and sinks, usually flipping upside down in the process. This can happen as a result of weather, but also occurs because of over occupancy or anchoring the boat at the stern.

The following are common boating accident injuries:

  • Lacerations
  • Broken Bones: sprained ankle and knee injuries occur frequently because passengers are often trying to maintain their balance
  • Hypothermia
  • Head Injuries

Any injury that you experience on a personal vessel or cruise ship could entitle you to compensation. Speak to an NYC boat accident lawyer to find out more.
