Consequences of a Serious Boat Accident

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. Our Modesto boating accident attorney has the skill and experience to successfully handle your case.

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.
