Tips for Finding the Best Boating Accident Attorney

In the aftermath of a boating accident, it is normal to feel stressed and overwhelmed. Unlike car accidents, boating accidents involve many statutes and regulations that are unfamiliar to most people.
 
Many boating injury victims ask, “Where can I find a lawyer for my boating accident?” Below, we will discuss several tips for finding the best accident attorney to represent you.

Due Diligence

When you are looking for legal representation, it is critical to do your due diligence. In other words, do not simply contact the first attorney or firm that you find.
 
Look for skilled lawyers who take clients in your area. Once you find several firms that you are considering, conduct some online research.
 
Read reviews from former clients to get an idea of what it is like to work with a particular attorney or firm. Previous clients can provide valuable insights and help you anticipate your own experience. 
 
You should not only rely on reviews on the firm’s own website. These testimonials are usually curated to provide the best image of the attorney or law firm.
 
Instead, you should look at reviews and testimonials from many different online sources. 

Do not hire a lawyer or firm with mostly negative reviews, either. Even the best attorneys will often have a few negative reviews, but as a general rule, past clients should report a positive experience.

Search for a Specialist

Most people search for attorneys on the internet. For instance, you might enter the following question into an online search engine: “Where can I find a lawyer for my boating accident?” Search engine results may provide you with links to many different types of attorneys. 

Some people believe that all lawyers have the same skills and knowledge base. This is a misconception.
 
In reality, there are many different types of attorneys. It is important to hire a legal expert with plenty of experience in cases like yours.
 
Make sure to find a lawyer with experience handling boating accident cases. In these claims, even the small details of local boating regulations may be relevant. 
 
Your attorney’s level of knowledge about relevant maritime laws could make the difference between success or failure in your case. The boating accident attorneys at Morgan & Morgan have decades of experience with these types of cases.
 
Our legal team has the resources and knowledge to fight effectively on your behalf. 

Schedule a Consultation

Most reputable injury attorneys will provide a no-cost legal consultation to review the facts of your case. This is an excellent way to determine whether a lawyer or firm is right for you.
 
This meeting is an opportunity for the attorney to review your case. But it also provides a chance for you to decide whether you want the lawyer to become your legal representative. 
 
When you attend the consultation, prepare some questions that can help you determine whether you want to hire the lawyer. 

Some of the questions that new clients often ask include:

  • How long have you been a practicing attorney?
  • Have you handled boating accident cases before?
  • What is your success rate?
  • Do you have trial and courtroom experience?
  • How does your firm handle attorneys’ fees?
  • Do you believe I can win this case?
  • What is your negotiation strategy?
  • How much is this boating accident case worth?

If you do not feel confident with the lawyer’s answers to these questions, keep looking. You should not hire any attorney or firm unless you are fully confident in their abilities.
 
The skilled experts at Morgan & Morgan know what it takes to recover compensation for boating accident victims. When you are wondering “Where can I find a lawyer for my boating accident?” look no further.

Contingency Fees

Accident victims often face massive financial challenges after being injured. Medical bills, lost income, and damaged property leave many people feeling overwhelmed. 
 
Because of this, it is critical to find a personal injury law firm that operates on a contingency fee payment structure. With this payment approach, you and the attorney will agree upfront on a percentage of the recovery from your boating accident case.
 
Once your lawyer successfully wins or settles your claim, that amount will be allocated to cover the cost of attorneys’ fees. This means that you will pay nothing upfront.
 
This approach allows victims to pursue justice without the added financial burden of upfront legal expenses. At Morgan & Morgan, our boating accident lawyers only get paid if you get paid.
 
When you hire us, you will not pay a penny unless we get money for you. You should never work with a law firm that requires payment before settling your boating accident case.
 
These are only a few steps to take when you wonder “Where can I find a lawyer for my boating accident?” Contacting Morgan & Morgan will give you the best chance of financial recovery.

Common Causes of Boating Accidents

The legal experts at Morgan & Morgan have decades of experience in both maritime and personal injury claims. Successfully recovering compensation in these cases requires the services of a highly skilled legal professional.
 
Boating accidents can happen as the result of many circumstances. If another person’s negligent behavior caused your boating accident, you can hold them financially accountable. 
 
Boat operators can be held liable for the following negligent actions:

  • Driving into wake or a wave at high speeds
  • Operating in dangerous weather or leading people to fall overboard
  • Causing someone to come into contact with boat propellers
  • Operating a boat at dangerously high speeds
  • Colliding with other boats, docks, or objects
  • Lack of proper safety equipment
  • Failing to adhere to proper boating procedure specified by FFWCC
  • Overloading or overcrowding the boat

If you believe that someone else’s carelessness caused your boating accident injury, seek legal counsel immediately. 

Jet Ski Accidents and Injuries

One subset of boating accidents are mishaps involving jet skis. These incidents can be even more hazardous than other boat accidents.
 
Unlike larger boats, jet skis leave riders very exposed to the surrounding environment. Jet ski accidents can result from the negligence of the rider or the operator of another boat.
 
Jet ski accidents and injuries can also result from faulty or defective equipment. When this happens, the victim can pursue financial compensation from the responsible party.
 
Many jet ski accident cases involve multiple negligent people or entities. Some examples include:

  • Other boat operators
  • Jet ski rental companies
  • Jet ski manufacturers
  • Jet ski retailers

No matter what the circumstances of your jet ski accident, a skilled attorney can help you. Many victims of this type of accident sustain catastrophic injuries. 
 
If you have been hurt in a jet ski accident, reach out to Morgan & Morgan as soon as possible.

FAQ

Morgan & Morgan

  • What Types of Damages Are Available in Boating Accidents?

    The term “damages” refers to financial payments made to an accident victim on behalf of the responsible party. Boating accident cases can involve many different types of damages. 
     
    Some kinds of compensation are intended to make up for the direct monetary losses that victims sustain. Examples of these damages include:

    • Cost of repairing or replacing damaged property­
    • Compensation for lost wages or income from missed work
    • Current and future medical expenses
    • And more

    But not every type of negative consequence from a boating injury results in a monetary loss. Victims can also pursue financial recovery for intangible losses. 
     
    Personal injuries often cause significant challenges for victims. Claimants can pursue damages for these difficulties, as well. 
     
    Some examples include compensation for:

    • Physical pain and suffering from the injury
    • Mental distress, like stress, anxiety, or panic
    • Embarrassment
    • Disfigurement and disability
    • Loss of enjoyment of life

    Unfortunately, some boating accidents result in fatal injuries. When this happens, the decedent’s surviving family can pursue financial recovery for the associated damages.
     
    Grieving families can seek compensation for funeral expenses, burial costs, outstanding medical bills, and more.
     
    To accurately determine the value of your boating accident claim, contact Morgan & Morgan. Our team has years of experience fighting for maximum compensation in boating accident cases.

  • Is Trial Experience Important When Hiring an Attorney?

    Yes! You should never hire a lawyer who lacks appropriate courtroom experience. 
     
    Although most personal injury and maritime tort claims do not result in litigation, some do. If your case goes to court, you will need a legal representative who is prepared.
     
    You should not have to be concerned that your lawyer will accept a lowball settlement to prevent the prospect of a trial. Morgan & Morgan boasts more than 700 trial-ready attorneys across the nation.

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
