Boat Accident Lawyers

Collisions involving boats often result in serious injuries. If you're injured as a result of someone else's negligence, call us first. 


While there is no center line or other highway markings on the water, there are still “rules of the road.”

As lawyers on the shore of Lake Erie, our law firm often receives calls concerning boat accidents, boating injuries, and other maritime collisions. These incidents may involve:

  • A crash between two boats
  • A boat striking a swimmer
  • A jet ski/Sea-Doo accident

Operator of boats, jet skis, or other vessels who violate maritime rules can be held liable for the injuries they cause. Even if operating within the rules, there may be other negligent conduct that lead to the injuries.

Our team  has decades of experience handling boat accident claims

While there may be some physical evidence, such as the damage to the boats, some of the evidence may lie at the bottom of Lake Erie or Presque Isle Bay. It is critical to take statements from witnesses as soon as possible, while the facts are fresh in their mind. 

Collisions involving a boat or boats often result in serious injuries.

Due to the need to contact witnesses promptly, obtaining a law firm is one of the most important things a person injured by a boat can do. Don’t wait until it’s too late or until all the evidence is gone. We offer a free evaluation of your case and only charge a fee unless we get you a recovery. 

Call our office today and we’ll take care of the rest.
