https://www.727injury.com (727) 381-2300 St Petersburg Personal Injury Attorneys McQuaid & Douglas

In the St Petersburg and Tampa Bay area boating is a way of life for a lot of us, I know it's a way of life for me and my family. But what happens when someone's in a boating accident? What are your rights? Well, when we're talking about injuries, what we do is we look at the outfall party. Was the at Fault Party, the operator of the vessel that you were on or was the at-fault party, someone else, some other boats, some other jet ski for example, and we look at the liability. Who is at fault? Then it flows from there. How and when we go after particular parties. Insurance plays a big role in this type of investigation and seeking recovery, but it's important to know that you do have rights if you've been injured in a boating accident and the St Petersburg and Tampa Bay area. Oh, so some boats carry liability insurance.

Obviously, that would be something we would be looking into as far as a way to compensate you. Some other times we have to look at I homeowners insurance policy to see if that provides any coverage for injuries caused by the negligent acts of another, the long, long. The short of it is, is we have to perform a quick and efficient evaluation and investigation after a boating accident has caused damage. Sometimes law enforcement is on the scene. We'll have to obviously get the police reports and things of that sort. But it's imperative that witness statements are taken and an investigation to protect your rights. If you've been injured in a boating action, make sure those steps are taken, uh, early on in the case so we can explore all avenues of recourse. If you have any questions about having been injured in a boating or a jet ski accident, feel free to contact us for a free consultation.
