Boating Accident Lawyer in Modesto, CA

Pursuing Fair & Just Compensation

If you or a loved one has suffered injury in a boating accident caused by another's negligent actions, you should reach out to our firm to pursue fair and just compensation. Like car drivers, boat operators are required to follow the law. A boat operator's negligence, inattention, or inexperience while operating a sail boat, speed boat, party boat, cruise ship, or Jet Ski can lead to severe injuries or tragic cases of wrongful death. A boat operator who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol is an extreme danger to others on the water.

Fabbro, our lead attorney, Mr. Fabbro, is listed as one of San Francisco's Top Rated Lawyers®, and has a Martindale-Hubbell® AV Preeminent® Rating, one of less than 5% of attorneys in the nation. Mr. Fabbro and his team are a highly committed and determined group that is focused upon seeking justice and compensation for victims of negligence.

Consequences of a Serious Boat Accident

Types of boating accidents include:

  • Collisions
  • Crashes with submerged objects
  • Sinking
  • Flooding
  • Grounding
  • Capsizing
  • Falling overboard

An enjoyable day on the water can quickly turn into a tragic nightmare if a collision occurs. Those that are unfamiliar with operating a watercraft can make serious mistakes, particularly if under the influence. When another boat is hit, the passengers often are thrown into the water, and may be knocked unconscious.

While underwater, the lack of oxygen can lead to permanent brain damage or death by drowning. Someone who has suffered brain damage may or may not recover, and in the worst cases, will live in a permanent vegetative state. Others may recover some ability, after a long period of rehabilitation. All of these matters are of great concern to families of the victims.

We will pursue the maximum possible in an insurance settlement, or can take the case to civil court for a verdict when necessary. Contact us today for a free consultation.
