Why You Need a Lawyer

The law around boat accidents can be complicated and confusing. Most people are less familiar with laws for boats than other laws, which can make it difficult to know if the person who caused your accident was truly at fault. An attorney can help, as they know the law, what legal recourse you may have against those who caused your injury, and what parties may potentially be held liable for your injuries.

Attorneys can consult with experts who can help determine the costs of future medical care so that you are fairly compensated for the harm you may continue to suffer even in the future. Additionally, an attorney can speak with other attorneys and insurance representatives. This can ensure that you get what you deserve and are not pressured by others to accept an offer for less compensation than what you may be owed for your injuries.

Failure to Adhere to Posted Laws

Failure to adhere to posted laws is a form of negligence. If your boating accident and subsequent injuries were the result of someone not following posted laws, they may have been negligent and may be liable for the harm you suffered.

Negligence occurs when a party with a duty to act in a reasonable manner to prevent foreseeable harm to others fails in their duty, thereby harming others. In instances when a law prohibits certain conduct and a person engages in that conduct anyway, they may have been negligent. Negligence eases some of the burden of proof for the party bringing the lawsuit, making it easier to win your case. As such, the party bringing the claim must only prove that the wrongdoer’s act, or failure to act, caused the injuries or damages they suffered.

Depending on the specific facts and circumstances of a case, there are various parties that may liable for any injuries resulting from a failure to adhere to posted laws. The boat operator may be liable. Additionally, the boat owner, whether they are an individual or an entity, may be liable. The easiest way to find out who was ultimately responsible for your injuries is to consult with an experienced boat accident lawyer.

Negligence law can be confusing and can become even more complicated in situations where more than one party was involved. That’s why the experienced personal injury attorneys at Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck P.A. are here to help.
