Legal Advocates Fighting for Those Injured in a Boat Accident
The state of Wisconsin is home to thousands of interior lakes, providing weekend relaxation and enjoyment. For many families and individuals, boats are a big part of cabin time, for fishing, water skiing, tubing or simply cruising around the lake. While most of these excursions go off without incident, accidents can easily occur if the boat’s owner or operator does not take care to protect passengers.
Pursuing Compensation for the Full Extent of Your Injuries
At Czachor, Polack + Borchardt, L.L.P., we often represent individuals who have been hurt because of boating accidents. Our attorneys understand the common circumstances under which these accidents occur and how to seek full benefits for the pain that has been caused. These injuries can be serious, resulting in lasting pain and possibly lost time at work. We are committed to ensuring that you are provided the compensation you need to make the fullest recovery possible and pay the additional medical bills and expenses incurred from lost work.
Many times, the accident is caused by the boat operator. While driving the boat, this person has a responsibility to protect everyone in the boat. Reckless driving, excessive speeds, drunk driving and distraction or inattention can cause him or her to lose control, hurting passengers and other boaters.
The boat’s owner is responsible to make sure that the boat is in safe working order before others ride. This includes proper maintenance and repair, as well as taking care of slippery surfaces that need attention.
If you are the boat’s owner, and you are struggling to receive benefits from your insurance company, we are prepared to advocate on your behalf to ensure that you are provided the full extent of benefits offered under your policy. This includes looking at the boat’s insurance policy, as well as additional relevant policies, such as homeowners insurance.
