If you were injured while boating on the Spokane River, Lake Coeur d’Alene, or some other body of water, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Any time you are hurt in a watercraft accident caused by someone else, you can hire a Spokane boat accident lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates to file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf.
Over 4,000 boating accident were reported in 2015. This figure is based on Coast Guard data, but many accidents are never reported and are instead handled privately. This is especially true of lake boating accidents, but this is always an unwise course of action and many of these claims will be settled for less than they should have been.
Every Spokane boat accident lawyer at our firm has dealt with a wide variety of watercraft accidents. Some common causes of boat accidents are listed below:
The severity of boating injuries is typically dictated by the type of accident and what happened during it. For example, someone thrown from a boat is at risk for a head injury, broken bones, and even drowning. Those tossed around inside of a watercraft are more likely to suffer injuries caused by directly hitting the interior of the boat.
Common injuries are as follows:
Any time your injury warrants seeking medical care, you could have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit and should speak with a Spokane boat accident lawyer from our firm.
Your Spokane boat accident lawyer will investigate your case to determine who was responsible for the actual accident. This will often be the driver of the boat you were in. However, another boater could also have caused the crash, or even the boat’s manufacturer could be to blame.
In some boating accidents, another passenger may cause the wreck by grabbing the wheel or doing something else to jeopardize your safety. Our goal is to gather enough evidence to prove negligence so that you can receive financial compensation for your injuries and suffering.
Determining what your injury claim is worth requires looking at your life holistically. How has your injury impacted you physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially? While most people seek compensation for medical bills, you may be entitled to much, much more:
When you speak with a Spokane boat accident lawyer from our office, let us know about any expenses you have incurred or money you have lost due to the accident and your injuries.
We are experienced trial lawyers that can advocate for your rights in court. However, just because you hire a Spokane boat accident lawyer, it does not mean that your case will end up in court.
Most of our cases actually settle outside of court through the negotiations process. This is done by gathering evidence that proves fault, determining the value of your claim, and issuing a demand letter. When the other party is willing to negotiate, we can often reach favorable settlement terms. In the event that court does become necessary, we will represent and advise you throughout the process.
Boating accidents can be devastating, and you deserve to be compensated for your injuries. Your Spokane boat accident lawyer can help you receive the money you need and deserve.
